Bus was on time. Driver appeared to be driving safely.

Tips
Get there early enough to get in the front of the line. The bathroom is located at the back of the bus so you have to deal with that traffic if you are back there.

That we did not stop at the PA Rest Stop after we were running very behind schedule.
Cons
Better online communication about what is happening with the status of the trip. No one was notified why the buses were loaded late. Then our bus had a flat tire and was delayed even further. Even though that bus had been driven and “inspected” upon arrival.

Arrive the destination earlier than the time on the ticket.

Could you say the station name more clearly on the ticket? (For example, "In front of the gate of Destiny US, between Macy's market and JCPenny's market") There are 3 stations in Syracuse and it is easy to get confused.
Tips
There are 3 stations in Syracuse. The right station for you is after the "from: " on your ticket.
