Aleasha H.September 28, 2018 | 

Yes I would appreciate it but I will be there again!

Weronika B.September 15, 2018 | 

My bus to Chicago was canceled. Which made me miss my Chicago flight to Boston and the Boston bus. I lost a lot of money. The service did not inform us about anything. Now I drive your company bus to New York. The driver is some crazy woman who screams at everyone and the passengers are afraid of the driver.

Juanita C.August 26, 2018 | 

The trip went fine until we got to Indianapolis had to wait 5/12hours no driver
