They were very accommodating and the driver was organized and knew what he was doing. He still got us there at a good time even in Friday evening traffic. The bus had outlets and air conditioning and trash bags for passenger garbage every few aisles. I enjoyed the trip ...They were very accommodating and the driver was organized and knew what he was doing. He still got us there at a good time even in Friday evening traffic.
