Cons: I booked the ticket in the morning of November 2 from Cincinnati to Bloomington. My bus was at 7:30 am, I got to the station at 6:55am and the stuff told me that my first bus to Indianapolis was canceled. So she helped me change my bus to 7:00 am. I did not received an e-mail to told me about that. I got something really important that day and I can't imagine what would happen if I didn't catch the bus. Thanks to the lady. I hope Wanderu could remind us about the things like that. Tips: When you get to the station, bring your printed ticket to the stuff. They will print the formal ticket for you. The ticket you received from the e-mail is not the ticket you can get into the bus.More
