No one speaks English, not the bus staff, neither the staff in their office. So, it is not a good idea to put a company in here, which doesn't provide anyone who can speak at least basic English. My initial ticket showed the bus was going to depart from the gate 34, then at the office I was told it is 130. There was nothing about this journey on the schedule tablets. Besides, when I approached to the office staff, they gave me the hard-copy of my ticket, but it showed wrong date there. I told them about that, but they didn't do anything. The bus was stinky...
All fine, but the ride took 8h instead of 4.5h, not happy :-(
