There were many seats available and I was comfortable throughout the ride. When we transferred, at the very least the bus was still cleanly and the instructions were clear.More
Cons
The second leg of the trip was significantly worse than the first leg, which is expected when traveling into New York City. The bus smelled, although it was cleanly, and the bus was crowded, which is slightly worrying with the ongoing pandemic.The second leg of the trip was significantly worse than the first leg, which is expected when traveling into New York City.

Cons
Since we are in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, I felt like passengers being seated right next to each other was not a good choice in regards to health. I also didn’t see any sanitizing of the seats or anybody’s temperature being checked.Since we are in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, I felt like passengers being seated right next to each other was not a good choice in regards to health.
