Wanderu, easy to use.
I selected a non-stop trip. I don't believe it was an error by Wanderu, however the were 4 stops prior to my arrival at my destination. There were no bus changes, perhaps that is the reason?

I like that I finally got my bag back from the terminal in Philadelphia, since it didn't make it with me to Atlantic City
By not loosing passengers bags and looking for them when someone calls to see where the bag is in transit
I guess never check your bag they might loose it
