There were people on the bus who didn't know the bus would stop at all the little towns, and these people were angry. If they would have had a little map with all the stops, they may have been easier to deal with.

I waited in the freezing temps for 40 minutes and the bus never arrived. Tried calling customer service, didn’t get an answer, the app bus tracker also was not providing bus location information.

The driver came off hasty and rude. It was my first time riding and I was afraid to ask the driver questions.
