Everything was excellent!...

Travelled like Sardines in a tin can

Bus is clean, drivers polite, accessible and helpful,...On leaving Sarajevo, a group of about 30 persons from countries in South East Asia in transit to Germany, came on the bus and traveled all the way either standing, sitting is the stairs at the middle exit, or sitting in the passageway. These people paid the same fair as others, they deserve to be treated as such. Do not ruin your product service with this kind of attitude because only you will pay the price of losing business.

le chauffeur m'a demandé le billet papier.

horaire respecté...le chauffeur voulait le billet papier. Il n'était pas demandé de l'imprimer lors de la réservation comme sur certain trajet que j'ai fait. Il m'a tout de même accepté de monter dans le bus
