November 9, 2023- Visiting familyOurBus
Pros: The driver was great. He made the rules clear in a very friendly but firm manner e.g. cell phone use and getting back on the bus after a brief rest stop. Cons: Signage at the departure place on 11th Ave, The only way I found the stop was when I approached a young woman wearing a Cornell sweat shirt and standing by a suitcase. There was absolutely no sign indicating that this was the bus stop. Tips: If you have not taken this bus before leave plenty of time to find the stop.

September 23, 2022- Visiting familyAdirondack Trailways
Pros: I booked this at the last minute (90 minutes prior) when anoher busline projected a two hour delay after we waited 25 minutes past the departure time with no information, and then an update arrived which cast doubt on the trip. We also had a tight connect at Binghamton, NY for Ithaca, NY, where no real transfer time was scheduled, and the driver took great pains to make sure the connectung bus did not depart without us. Cons: Upgrade the bus's interior. Tips: The trip was safe and reliable. This is one of the main buslines; the newby lines are a bit more risky.

Pros: Once on the bus, everything went so smoothly! Cons: It was hard to figure out where to print our tickets, and whether or not we had to print our tickets. We arrived early to figure it out, but nearly missed our bus bc things weren’t always clear. Also, the charging ports on the bus were all broken. Tips: Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer to help prevent the spread of disease!

Pros: Bus was on time. Driver appeared to be driving safely. Cons: Electricity available for charging devices. Tips: Get there early enough to get in the front of the line. The bathroom is located at the back of the bus so you have to deal with that traffic if you are back there.

In the ticket that was emailed to me, there was no information for the logistics particularly one important thing that I am supposed to get the ticket printed at the Port Authority Terminal and the online PDF version of the ticket is not applicable. That almost made me lose the trip, only due to the generous nature of the staff they allowed me in or else I would have missed the bus. Please improve upon that aspect!
