Professional, courteous staff, driving-overall safe, simply excellent, comfortable seating.

Good service.

Balint F.August 29, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

Our bus got cancelled and the way to get a refund is confusing and hard.

Michelle Y.August 26, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Actually ended up bailing on the bus and bought a train ticket when the bus was an hour late

Gaia D.August 22, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Bus came 2 hours late. Staff was not helpful and not friendly.

Nissim V.August 21, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

Left DC 30 minutes later, arrived to Phila an hour later than expected. No traffic just unnecessarily waiting time in MD.

Stefan P.August 18, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Bus cancelled after waiting 1hour. No Info from anybody

Kalil L.August 17, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

2 hours late.

Scott P.August 16, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

They made us wait an hour until after the scheduled departure time to tell us the bus was broken down in another state and that it would be another two hours for another bus to come. I had to take an Amtrak train to get to my daughter's birthday which cost me over twice as much as the entire round trip I had to refund.

Randolph J.August 15, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Great on time

Jean Marc L.August 15, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 3 | 

Autant notre voyage entre New York et Washington était très correct autant celui entre Washington et Philadelphia était très décevant. Sièges dégradés, pas de prises électriques ni de reposes pieds sur nos fauteuils. Odeurs nauséabondes dans le bus.

Alice D.August 13, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

good driving,inexpensive price.

Jan H.August 6, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 |

Roger C.August 4, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

2 hrs late getting into Philadelphia. I ended up trying to find where I had to stay in the dark

Simbala D.July 29, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 5 | 

Nice driver...even with traffic we weren't too late.

Bernard T.July 28, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 3 | 

not very comfortable

Lucas D.July 13, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

I don’t know why they sell a reserved seat if you can’t get it. And also they treat me like a piece of shit when bus arrives to take my luggage l.
