Everything was great, but our ride was 3 hours delayed... maybe because of the rain? Traffic was horrendous, so I understand. I don't know how often these run this late, but it'd be nice to have a heads up on real commute time if it's frequent.
Driver should announce if there's a big delay like this on the bus.

Convenient! Picks up right around the corner from my house in Alexandria!!
Timing! No traffic and an hour late??? They switched drivers and pulled over somewhere random. No mention of getting in late.
If you are on a time crunch, plan ahead on what bus you take
