Pros: The bus itself was clean. The only issue I had was that the bathroom was dirty when I boarded. I went to use the bathroom before taking off and someone took a crap on the metal portion of the flapper. So when they flushed it didn’t. It was really nasty. Cons: Please ensure the bathrooms are cleaned.
