Very happy with bus trip

Dylan R.24 February 2020 | 

Bus for 8:15 arrived at 8:10 according to surrounding bus drivers when I arrived at 8:15 on the dot. I late to Galway because of this but luckily the driver for the following bus at 11:15 let me on board provided I show the ticket for the 8:15 bus. I however do wish to be compensated somehow as I was 3 hours late.
