Pros
The bus driver was very friendly and in a good mood the whole trip. It was a very very long trip, but he kept joking and made us feel good. The driving was comfortable coming from someone who feels sick during bus rides a lot. I felt safe!
Cons
The seats were really new and nice but the leg space was really tight. Because the seats went so far down, it wasn’t possible to extend the legs at all which is quite annoying on such a long trip.

Cons
It is totally understandable that the driver get a 1/2 hour break after driving for 7 1/2 hours. But when it is at 3:00 A.M. and the majority of people trying to sleep or already doing so, it would be nice if the bright lights weren't turned on. Also, Wifi for the whole...More
