Bus driver was friendly and very helpful in assisting with baggage. Because of a traffic problem on CT Highway 84 the bus was delayed 30 min on arrival time. That is not the fault of the bus driver. Overhaul the trip was pleasant



October 28, 2022- Visiting family


Pros: It was my first time traveling on a coach bus, except field trips in high school lol. I wasn't sure what to expect. I liked that the drive took the time it said it would. Cons: Things that probably won't change: width and depth of seats; less expensive tickets because it's so crowded anyway. Tips: Bring earphones, don't wear bottoms that are slippery bcuz the seats aren't fabric, u will slide.
