Bus had good wifi, you can charge your phone...Bus ticket controller was rude and argued with passengers

Everyone was very kind. Bus was on time....The bus was half empty. In a bus at full capacity ir would have been more incomfortable, because you can't mover the back of your seat if someone is seated behind you
