Some staff were ok, most were not, especially the security officer at Richmond Virginia I approached him and asked a question, his response “you came all the way out here to ask me that the service counter is in there “ he was rude and unprofessional and unwilling to help. Service desk person was helping someone else and I needed to walk after sitting for a long period of time.

I missed my original bus. All 3 ticket machines were inoperable. I printed my ticket out but still had to wait in a long slow line. Finally I made it to the ticket agent & she sent me to the bus. When I made it to the bus the luggage doors were closed & a gentleman was telling me that once the doors were closed they will not open them. I had to pay $20 to reschedule for the next bus. My lay over in Richmond was long & unexpected. Also communication & the signage made it confusing when employees on the floor & the lady on the microphone were giving out different information. No out let’s on the bus my phone ended up going dead...

Excellent service. Safe reliable and affordable

One bus driver was a little over zealous about his time schedule and rude. The other drivers were friendly, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars on friendliness.

Nancy F.September 19, 2016 | 

The first stop where we changed bus drivers the incoming bus driver was rude and late. But overall the next bus driver was extremely nice and very informative. So the first and the last bud drivers were the best. My trip was very good.

Liam T.September 2, 2016 | 

Some of the staff from Atlanta to Charlotte were disrespectful and totally dismissive of our concerns. We were stranded in Charlotte for 2 hours because the bus driver scheduling didn't work out which makes no sense to me. But our driver from Richmond to New York was great. Very concerned about getting us there on time, if everyone was on board, and our comfort. Also the bus was either freezing or way too hot
