I liked the bus tracker; that way I knew if the bus was running on schedule. My bus was running 30 mins late likely due to the weather. The charging ports were also not functional and I was not able to access the WiFi. Everything else was great.

Did not catch the bus as there wasn’t any direction on where the pickup location was. I had buy another ticket for Red Arrow bus service which was way more direct with clear instructions

Very personalized service that is punctual and professional. I will definitely be riding with them over other unreliable services like book a ride. The drivers are professional and friendly, I highly recommend them.
