Pros: I like the driver as he parked the bus after getting off terminal to make sure everybody wears a mask.. And wake up a guy asleep who has loud earplug to turn low his volume so as not disturb his neighbors,. Cons: Driver didnt introduce himself although he thank everybody for riding Greyhound. Tips: For trouble free riding cooperate with driver's announced codes of conduct for passengers. Remember announced departure time so you wont be left out at stop overs.
