Cynthia, our driver had incredible service. Although traffic put us behind she had great communication with where we were at time wise and made it much less of an unpleasant circumstance. She was very personable and the best driver I’ve had thus far.Cynthia, our driver had incredible service.

I ended up being a bit late to my trip because I got stopped and harassed by some men on my walk to the bus and I went an alternate route to get out of the situation so I ended up taking a cheaper bus ride but spent way more because I paid my initial bus price plus the $20 cash change fee and I barely had enough cash.More
