Very good experience

Pamela Q.March 1, 2020 | 

I enjoyed the trip. From New York City to Ithaca the windows were extremely dirty. It's always a pleasure to spend bus time looking out of the windows.

Anne M.February 24, 2020 | 

very good value for the price. Nice driver!

Doreen P.February 7, 2020 | 

Bus was dilapidated and could have been a smoother ride. Driver was great

Rodrigo V.January 25, 2020 | 

The bus driver didn’t communicate anything so we can arrange for solutions for the transfer to get to ithaca. A couple and I hired an Uber to pick us up 3 hours after our planned arrival, so we can get to Ithaca.

Ashley B.January 18, 2020 |

The ticket to purchase this bus says that it has Wifi and electrical outlets, it has neither

Anil Kumar S.October 31, 2019 | 

Great staff - polite, informative and helpful. Had a good journey. The phone charging ports did not work, even tho the “charging on” symbol comes on. perhaps due to very low power supply?

Siddarth D.October 14, 2019 | 

The services were amazing. However, the strong perfume applied by a co passenger made me sick through of the journey.

Barbara T.September 26, 2019 | 

Hey lots of traffic she was a good driver.

Kazuko O.August 30, 2019 | 

air conditioning temperature setting was too low I was freezing

Burak Erdem A.August 26, 2019 |

Audrey G.July 29, 2019 | 

Incredibly frustrating and would not allow me on the bus.

Vicki E.July 22, 2019 | 

Couldn’t be happy with the service!

Sharon L.July 19, 2019 | 

I wish there were USB plug ins to charge phones for the duration of my travel.

Qian D.July 15, 2019 | 

Very fast and comfortable.

Marcin C.July 6, 2019 | 

No wifi ... DRIVER made many mistakes and in some cases he had to turn back ... crazy

Carlos M R.July 5, 2019 | 

There was traffic. So I understand the lateness. The bus driver was a bit abrasive and combative though.

Eric C.July 4, 2019 | 

Disappointed-Wi-Fi was not working and air-conditioning was very weak for most of the trip. Bus was crowded and uncomfortable

Shira S.June 28, 2019 | 

Was even better if prices were lower

Shelley C.June 1, 2019 | 

It was comfortable and the driver made up for lost time.

Moe W.May 24, 2019 | 

It was surprisingly good for the amount I paid! The seats were slightly on the uncomfortable side but the plugs worked and there was consistent WiFi throughout the trip!

Matias W.May 20, 2019 | 

Very good service. Nothing to complain about and the driver was kind.

Olena B.May 11, 2019 | 

I wish the lights were white and better adjusted for reading.

Sumita S.May 6, 2019 | 

Great trip

Ramchandran M.January 31, 2019 | 

I am an International Student at Cornell and my flight into New York City was delayed mid-flight and I subsequently missed my bus to Ithaca. I tried contacting the customer service of ourbus several times desperately to no avail and ended up losing money and having to rebook with a different service. Did not get the help I hoped to find.
