Pros: Very comfortable, trailways bus seats had to be the most comfortable I’ve used. The driver helped me out since I left my iPhone charger in NYC and he let me use his! We were an hour early since the border was only a 5 minute process and the bus driver offered to drop us off at another terminal in a neighbouring city to kill time since we were already passing by it, and it helped me A LOT!!!! Cons: Nothing! Staff was very friendly and the seats were great and spacious WOULD recommend. Tips: Wanderu genuinely does have the best prices. I was comparing only in greyhound when My boyfriend recommended this site and I saved over $40 dollars booking on Wanderu instead of only looking at greyhound options.
