Pros: The staff were excellent on both legs of the trip ( to New Haven and back to Springfield). ON the first leg, at least two staff went out of their way to help a woman who had trouble getting her ticket. On the way back, a conductor tried hard to intervene with an uncooperative couple and their dog. She remained professional and clear when they were disrespectful and inappropriate. Cons: The speaker was difficult to hear - very scratchy and screechy.
