My bus was comfortable and clean. Breaks during the trip were as often as necessary. Drivers were very kind. Everything perfect

The bus didn’t come - there was no information about the location of the bus stop - we were 15 minutes early and waited for an extra 20 minutes after our bus was meant to depart but it didn’t come

The bus didn’t arrive at all, so i had to take a taxi to the airport and risk missing my flight. Very dissappointed.

Beside of the good driving skills, the bus driver was lacking on communication skills and had a temper shouting at other drivers from inside the bus.

I wish I had better communication about the bus being late. I missed my transfer because the bus was over an hour late. Had to pay more money for a taxi.
