My original bus got cancelled half an hour before it was set to depart without a reason given. The next bus did not leave for over an hour later and was more expensive with a longer trip time.

Pros
I enjoyed someone else being responsible for the traffic and scheduling. Appreciated on-board Wifi and the extra hours to get some on-line work accomplished.
Cons
I'm a Jefferson Bus fan! Whenever possible, I will choose to use Jefferson Bus vs. driving on my own.
Tips
Consider wearing noise-cancelling headphones if bothered by bus engine noise.

Pros
The bus wasn’t full, so I had two seats to myself, which was nice since my trip was 8.5 hours long.
Cons
We weren’t told when we would be stopping for a quick food and bathroom break. It would have been nice if we were told in advance.
Tips
There is an app that tells you if the bus is running late. Mine was, but it was easy to check how late it was running, which was nice.

Pros
The bus was not oversold so there was plenty of room.
Cons
The trip was completely unnecessarily long. It took over 8 hours to arrive at the destination that is less than 4 hours by car. This is because of the unnecessary stops. The itinerary said the bus would make only 2 stops along the way, but instead we stopped 8 times. Pe...More
