Inaccessible information and communication to deaf passenger.

Jadet E.December 31, 2019 | 

I understand that it’s holidays but there’s wasn’t to much communication as to what was going on from the staff. We were told the bus would be 20 mins late. But that turned into an hour later. I got on the bus at 2pm and arrived in NY at 7pm.

Cristiano C.December 30, 2019 | 

The bus was very old, raising some concerns in relation to security, moreover it was too noisy when in motion (everytime it braked there was a loud noisy coming from the brakes). Another concern was related to confort as the seats were teared apart by some extent across the bus.

Manasse S.December 30, 2019 | 

Nice bus

Chunmei L.December 29, 2019 | 

there must be a way to upgrade the schedule management. Best wishes!

David O.December 27, 2019 | 

Very impressed with Tony, the first driver on the bus to Washington on December 23. Very smooth stops, and very safe driving.

Gladys Z.December 27, 2019 |

Shane is a good dispatcher. He is lovely and friendly!!!
