Great bus and on time. The driver was looking for an arguement with everyone though. I missed my first bus by 2 minutes which I understand is my fault. The queue to get another ticket / ticket amended was so long that I had to buy an additional ticket online in order to garauntee that I could get on to the next bus - you need more staff on the ground.

The bus driver was incredibly rude. I don't think I've ever in my life been treated so rudely after asking a simple question.
