Things were good. First time I use Trailways and I liked it. But there weren’t instructions on where to find the bus in Destiny mall. I had to ask around about the bus stop. And because the bus did not show up until 4:50 sharp, I was not sure if I’m in the eighth place

The transfer from Syracuse bus station to Ithaca was luckily at 5 because the bus from Syracuse airport to the bus station at 4:05 was 45+ minutes late. The bus driver and support person on the phone were very nice

Colin H.September 16, 2019 | 

Bus driver was extremely rude to passengers. Got mad at people boarding even though they didn’t know the procedure. Many of the employees in the bus station were also rude, and just acted like everyone should know how everything works, so they were annoyed when I asked a question

Eden S.August 28, 2019 | 

The driver was very kind and friendly but the Trailways staff on the phone were not very professional.

really great and comfortable trip

Patricia S.November 21, 2018 | 

Good driver, kept us informed, and I was comfortable on the bus. Very strange that there is no bus station open at Ithaca, and that dozens of people were waiting out on a cold windy snowy sidewalk to get on the bus back to Syracuse.

Mary P.November 21, 2018 | 

My first bus was 40 minutes late. Second bus was on time to pick up but we arrived late and we weren’t even told where the bus would be dropping us off

Benjamin D.October 10, 2018 | 

Not only was the bus 30 minutes late, there was absolutely no communication. We called customer service twice before we got any information at all.

Shubham M.October 10, 2018 | 

the bus was 30 minutes late and there was no notification: email or otherwise. the driver was nice enough after coming but i ended up at my destination over an hour later than anticipated

Susan F.October 6, 2018 | 

Pickup location in Ithaca had changed. That information should be publicized and on tickets

Monica R.September 30, 2018 | 

No real signage at Syracuse airport to let u know where to get bus. They have the airport torn up!!! For non locals there needs to be signage. Thx

Eden S.September 10, 2018 | 

I take this bus weekly. The driver is very nice and the bus is clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend it.
