the trip to NY the bus was in good shape and we arrived only few minutes late due to traffic. The bus from NY was older and had a lot of wear and tear. The seat back was stuck back and there was no neck support.

Very convinient time table. Easy to boarding and no need to print the ticket. I liked my jorney and it is very good that there were enough empty spaces inside the bus and it was not crowded.
Cons
May be there was wifi but did not find any information about it. I think a bottle of water could be provided for such trip.

Pros
Easy to purchase through Wanderu and nice not having to drive or park in the city.
Cons
The route seems circuitous, going into New Jersey to get to New York from New England, but I'm sure they have they're reasons..
Tips
Parking in the Springfield MA lot is too expensive--costs as much as one of the bus tickets even though payment is by a machine that only takes coins or credit cards.
