Pros
I liked that the bus was small and that I had plenty of room.
Cons
There was a !ot of guess work as to where I would meet the bus. A simple sign at the location would be helpful. There was a lot of stress involved at the very beginning, wondering if the bus would come at all, or if I was in the right place.
Tips
The bus meets between the abandon gas station and the Starbucks.
