Bus was completely delaied, i was almost close to losing the plane! No infos about timing and trip situation at all! If you have to catch a flight take the bus with at least 4 hours before the time!

Very nice service, I would recommend updating the website to show ONLY the buses (and times) that are being used. Tried to buy a ticket for a bus that wasn’t available. (Only offer running buses please)

Outstanding. Best bus I have ever been on!! ,

Karin R.September 11, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

The seats are spacious and comfortable and the onboard entertainment system is great. We liked that we reserved specific seats so there was no worry we would not get to sit together etc. The bus was 30 minutes late and there was no information about why or when it would be expected which was a bit stressful. Otherwise all good!

Staff who was sec urity gave us wrong information.

Catherine R.May 24, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 3 | 

We were fortunate that the bus was late as our connecting bus was also late. The journey was fine and comfortable and got us from A to B smoothly. We didn't have much interaction with the driver hence difficult to judge staff of ALSA.

Helen C.April 19, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 3 | 

none it was a very comfortable journey

Kevin O.November 4, 2016 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

The bus arrived late and the sign saying what stall it would arrive was taken down at arrival time. This added a great deal of confusion. However, the driver, his assistant, and the on board amenities were all outstanding.
