I liked that I could go straight to the airport and everything was on time!
Make sure you get there a bit early. I did which was good. I had heard it’s not usually busy but it was on the day I travelled.

The trip down was great. The driver was nice and helpful and friendly. No issues on the way from Bangor to Boston.
No improvements to be made on the trip from Bangor to Boston. But the trip back home from Boston to Bangor was frustrating. We arrived to board the bus and were told the bus was full, even though I still had my ticket in my hand which I had purchased weeks in advance....More
Bring some ear buds to watch the movies, and a phone charger because they have outlets and wifi!
