September 10, 2023- Visiting friendsDuluth to Minneapolis
Pros: I just love the simplicity of Wanderu it simply shows me the applicable Jefferson lines rides available in the easiest interface ever. I simply get on a comfy bus at the set spot at the set time and relax til I’m home. Way better than driving! Cons: Sometimes Jefferson busses stop at stops that no one gets on or off at. On busses of less than like 30 people I would think these stops could be avoided entirely… Tips: It’s all so great that few tips are really needed in my opinion!

Pros: All in all these busses make taking a whole car between cities sound like a major inconvenience: the bus was just as fast, cheaper, safer, and more comfortable. Plus you can nap or work on something!! Cons: Please make accommodations for bikes. External racks would not be hard to install. Asking people to disassemble and pack in a box is absurd. Tips: Not that I can think of.

January 27, 2023- Solo travelMilwaukee to Madison
Pros: Overall everything was OK. Cons: I wish the information regarding what can and can’t be brought on the bus was abundantly clearer. My first bus driver said as long as containers aren’t open alcohol was fine. Under this impression I bought some expensive craft beer as a gift for friends and was told I couldn’t have it in the second bus, so I had to throw it away. I understand rules are rules and I’m not looking for a refund but I would have greatly appreciated a clear explanation.
