Ourbus was serving small water bottles, for free. Also, staff was very gentle and no noise. I appreciated my trip for every single second. Thank you.
Cons
I'd say maybe more trips from Newark or to Newark. And if possible please do trips for different destinations as well. I love bus trips.
Tips
Bring your books and upload your Netflix on your tablets. You even won't notice you are on the bus.

Pros
The bus was not crowded and the seat was comfortable and clean.
Cons
The company seriously needs to improve their organization in Washington DC. The buses and bus routes are very poorly marked, there are no employees who can direct travelers to the appropriate departure line for their bus. It all seems very haphazard and confusing. BasicMore
