The comfort
The wifi was slow and occasionally did not work.
Great value and comfortable ride. I was able to get work done so it was a productive use of time.

The availability of charging ports is a huge plus when traveling, so these buses were ideal for that. We had a late start from the point of departure, but still made it in good time to catch the second bus. Overall, it was a good trip and I would buy from this site agai...More
The bus could be a little cleaner, but it was decent enough and this is not a deal breaker.
Stand in line as soon as you get to the station if you have specific preferences for seating.

No problem
Nothing much but I also recommend bus driver start onboarding early so we don't have to stand outside for an hour waiting to onboard.
Make sure to use the bathroom before getting onboard. There is only one single toilet that is very small and lots of instability because of the minor bumps. No running water as well. Lastly, make sure to clean and disinfect bath seat well before use.
