Megan B.September 10, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

at first the staff made an announcement to say the bus would be about 2 hours late. this made everyone slightly upset. then after the 2 hours had passed they made another announcement to say the bus would be another 3 hours so a few of the passengers took it upon themselves to find their own way to santa barbara. we had asked about our options regarding a refund but the lady on the desk was ignoring the passengers and was not helpful what so ever and was very rude to her customers

Ian H.August 30, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Bus was in decent shape but the departure was delayed by over three hours.

Mariann M.August 22, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

I’m total disappointed with this travel today from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara. The bus had 4 hours delay and I didn’t get any useful information why did it happen. I want definitely a kind of compensation because this is unacceptable from such a big company like you! Thank you!

Andrey T.May 29, 2018 | Staff: 2 | 

40 minute delay, no info, no any stop on the way to visit rest room, coach is very uncomfortable.

Charlotte W.May 28, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

The bus was over an hour late, smelled like pee pee and the chargers and WiFi did not work. Thanks

Caroline G.November 16, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

We were late by 40 minutes to my destination and the wifi on my bus didn't work at all. Very annoying

Juanita O.August 23, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 3 | 

Make sure bathroom lock works

Alice S.August 9, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus was tree hours late! The floor in the bus was super sticky and dirty. And the toilet was grose!

Chika S.April 15, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

I will never use it

Jason T.April 8, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

And hour and a half late to Santa Barbara. 6am trip on 4/8 left at 730am....Also would love to thank Oscar Martinez for offering to print my 3rd party boarding pass....when there are only 2 or 3 trips a day to Santa Barbara, I expect that they be all on time....
