Pavel A.March 30, 2019 | Staff: 1 | 

At the beginning, when they landed, they gave me a ticket with number 52 which was not on the bus and was forced to be on the street until everyone entered the bus, but after my requests to find out and find my place no one responded I had to take other places, although I chose these places! Then I and all the other passengers were very cold on the bus, at my request to change the temperature the driver did not change the temperature and we continued to freeze for 6 hours, now I feel ill!

Remy G.October 27, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

The bus was very comfortable and the staff lovely the one thing I would regret is the voucher that we need to get at the station, I would have preferred a digital check in or to directly print my reservation. Apart from that the trip was smooth, good wifi and we arrived at destination safely.

Very comfortable trip, sometimes the Wi-Fi didn't work but I guess it was due to crossing states.

Louise E.February 23, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

the driver drove very fast and a bit erratic! although we did arrive early so I'm not complaining! the bus was quite uncomfortable but it was only 6 hours long - but we stopped for a long break in this time too!? no food was available on board but then it was a short journey. it was freezing cold on board too
