I liked the fact that we were on the road and when we travelled we passed many cities so I found it interesting and fun.
I really don’t have an idea of what can be improved there because I was generally satisfied.
If I have to give a tip to other travellers it will be to pack some lunch some water some juice to take some magazines if they want so they won’t be bored, to take of course they’re earphones and things like this so they can listen to music and enjoy the ride.

...very efficient, fruendly driver who arrived in Toronto exactly at 12:30 pm ....perfect time....also comfortable new seats ln bus with seatbelts for safety...
Would like a place to put garbage at my seat + drink holder if ever possible
The Toronto to Parry Sound return trip was super comfortable + went by quickly which I didn't expect. A much better experience than my Megabus from Kingston home base to Toronto.
