The bus was so cold at night and I saw the driver purposely turning the temperature down, he played 3 films all night really loud but when I looked round at everyone they just wanted to sleep. After this experience I will be using copetron
I was impressed with the excellent service and quality of the bus. The staff was excellent in running things smoothly. The service at Expreso Brasilia is better than some of the service on certain airlines. I was an international passenger and didn't know many of the stops so wasn't sure if I made it to my stop. Although providing earphones was very nice, I wasn't able to hear the sound of the movie. I did enjoy the tv screen. The wifi was not strong enough and would disconnect. Overall, the bus was clean and the seats were very comfortable.
The bus was meant to take 10 hours but took 18 and a half. As well as this the driving was very dangerous, i respect the fact the road and winding but i did not feel safe at all. There was also no water or loo roll in the loo which for such a long bus is not good service.
Bus was over 9 hours late arriving to the destination. Had to change buses at 2am but was happy to get off the first bus because it was crawling with cockroaches. Terrible driver made it impossible to sleep on the over 19-hour journey
