Pros
The drivers were very nice.
Cons
On my way back the driver was great but the bus was very old and kind of dirty. There was no reflection on him but on Greyhound. Some seats were ripped. Also the wifi did not work on any of the buses that said Greyhound. It worked on Trailways but not on Greyhound.
Tips
Buy tickets from here, they are a good bargain.
