Pros
Nobody sat next to me so I had both seats to myself. This was the only redeeming part of the trip.
Cons
Let's break it down. First, I booked a 6:30pm bus that was supposed to arrive in Pittsburgh at 12:15am. I arrive a half hour early as instructed. About 15 minutes prior to our designated time to leave an employee calls over the loud speaker that the bus will be delayed.More
Tips
Take a Megabus, if possible. Bring snacks and water with you because your bus and therefore rest stop may be delayed two hours and you'll be starving. Bring an extra jacket because the buses are always freezing, and you may just want a makeshift pillow.

Cons
the bus driver should tell passengers not to put their music out loud for everyone to hear. There was Spanish music played by one on the passengers on a speaker the whole 6 hours of my trip.
