Was okay. Delayed 3.5 hours
The app told me to go to the north terminal and there was not terminal on the ticket once it was printed out. Thus, I ended up at the wrong bus terminal. Had to pay a taxi driver to rush me to the south terminal before 9 am. He go me there but in 15 min. Because traffic was light. Not happy. The the bus left 30 min late, we did not arrive in Cali till 9pm. When I bought the tickets it said 9 am departure, arrival time 5pm. Now I would give the bus and 1.5hours of grace because of the construction. But still that 4 hours. Late. Let's just say not happy!
Arrival was 2 hours later than scheduled.

Perfect journey. First time I've been on one of your buses where the Aircon wasn't freezing. Finally a bus I could sleep on 🤙
A 10 hour bus with no charging ports is a joke. I also misplaced my luggage tag so the guy said I had to pay him, which I knew couldn’t be true, so I gave him what was in my pocket and he told me to get off the bus.
Terrible service bus left and arrived late, no toilet paper and the toilet didnt flush
