The bus arrived 45 minutes in both directions. The drivers were confident, and drove safely. No speeding.
It was great. I'll travel this way again.

Finding the bus was a little tricky on the way home, just had to ask the drivers, but I did see a few people miss the bus they were supposed to be on because it wasn’t 100% clear.
All in all a great value & experience will 100% use again
