Only thing was WiFi signal wasn’t good

Evelyn A.February 21, 2020 | 

The bus was very old and there was no heat.

Cansu S.December 30, 2019 | 

The driver was kind but because of the late departion she raced with the bus. It was so unsafe and we almost had an accident. We waited to long for getting on the bus. One of the windowcleaners from the bus were broke and the driver drove with that bus while it was so rainy. It rained to whole day. I literally hold my heart for this three hours to past. I will never go with this buscompany again and will definitely not revommend it.

Zelalem Wassihun S.December 30, 2019 | 

I was so ferstrat the bus is in truble a mile distance from the union station and we stayed 1 and half hour's . They weren't change at that moment and it's stop again also at Baltimore and we staying more than 45 or 50 min

Jacqueline B.December 22, 2019 | 

Service was okay. Bus was running late because of traffic.

Dean L.December 14, 2019 | 

The bus was standard, comfortable, and not too crowded. The driver was direct and helpful. The stop in Baltimore was quick and easy. The driver was smart and knew how to avoid traffic and although there was a 10 minute delay we made great time. The price was fair for the ride.

I thought it was an easy bus ride. I really liked how there were outlets on all of the seats. The stop in Baltimore was quick and easy. We still managed to arrive a little late. Otherwise, a smooth ride.

Bus driver was very inexperienced, bus kept stopping than jolting forwards, discontent widespread among passengers

Dennis J.October 2, 2019 | 

Staff at Washington Station has been a little bungling

Patrycja L.September 29, 2019 | 

There was no wifi on board

Cynthia W.September 28, 2019 | 

Bus driver drove well with no personality. She stopped on the road to go to the bathroom because she had been drinking what looked like a smoothie. She never said a word. I was thinking that the bus had problems. There was no electrical power and difficult to use WIFI. Very late and never apologized or told us we would be late. That was my first and last ride with Peter Pan.

Bongiwe N.September 16, 2019 | 

The experience on the bus was unpleasant, the driver was a bit rude to the passengers.

Tyesha G.September 10, 2019 |
