Pros
The driver was very personable even though he made the rules clear
Cons
The passenger in front of me 1st row had 2seats. He moved from 1 to the other constantly, sometimes stretching across both at the same time I was with my 9 yr old grandson. The passenger had his seat back so far it felt like he was in my lap
Tips
Make it clear to the person in front of you when he puts the seat all the way back into your lap it makes your ride uncomfortable
