Pros: The ride was smooth and the driver kept us up-to-date when we were gong to be late due to traffic. I did not mark we were late, because we were not 30 mins late. It was within a reasonable time. Cons: As a first time rider, it was a little confusing as to what bus was there picking up whom. It would be nice if the drivers would let everyone know where they were going so we do not have to go up and bug them while they are trying to move people along. Better yet, it would be helpful for the bus to have it posted on there somewhere as that was the first thing I did was look for a sign. While I was there, someone almost got on the wrong bus and just about missed theirs due to this. Tips: Be sure to go a little early and don't be afraid to ask the driver where they are going. Don't assume any bus is going where you want. Also, the stops are outside and there is no shelter. Be prepared if it is raining or cold.More
