Pros
I was glad that my bus was on time. Earlier that day due to weather conditions in Iowa there were a few cancellations.
Cons
On a 6 hour ride, a food stop is needed so people who need to take their medication with food can do so. That's a long ride without food.
Tips
Make sure you get something to eat because you may never know if they are not going to stop for food.

The driver talked too much. I don't want to hear jokes. When the driver speaks, I assume it's something important so I listen up. It would be nice if Driver's only spoke when giving needed information.

Pros
The bus was late but that happens.
Tips
Try not to talk loud the entire trip. Also got the last seat and women had part of her leg on my seat and said my leg hurt and I have to stretch it out so here I have to sit in half a seat uncomfortable for the entire trip

It was my first time using mass transportation such as this. I was nervous about the process and anxious about the possibility that I would get lost in an unfamiliar location. The driver was friendly and helpful with my questions and clarified all my confusion. The bus ...More
Cons
There wasn’t much signage at the station that signaled where I should wait and if the driver would come inside or we approach the bus. I would appreciate more directions on the boarding ticket itself or at the station.
