Pros
It was easy to book and pay. The bus was on time. It was a full bus, the trip to Boston is fairly short, so I understand the tight seating. I am not a big person or tall, but I found the seat was a bit cramped, though not uncomfortable.
Cons
See above, the seats are a bit cramped. Otherwise it was as expected and a good experience.
