Only reason not rated 5 is that not everything on the coach worked but was very comfortable ride. Also no bathroom onboard but would use again.

It took long queue to pass the custom. Unfortunately, the bus driver left most of us before we were able to come out. At the end, we had to use the public transport to go to MRT station.

Checking in for our trip was pretty simple, just be aware that there are many different companies operating from the same block, so you need to find the right counter. Transtar is on the far end. Both locations (starting and ending points) are central and easily accessible, so I recommend this route. Seats are roomy, and the cabin was clean. There are no bathrooms on board, but you'll make a stop for food and bathrooms halfway through the journey. There are also bathrooms after going through customs. The only real downside to this trip was the stop. We stopped for food for about 40 minutes and then made a stop for gas after that, pushing our arrival time back and we were late. I wish the stops were shorter so we could get to our destination on time.

Driver seemed very moody and there was no WiFi on the coach at all when it stated there was and this was the main reason we went with this coach. There was also no toilet.

Everything was great. We had to wait a little bit long for 2 pessengers at the border but it wasn’t the driver’s fault. The seats were really comfortable, I could sleep a lot :)

The driver was good, not like what i previously read about the reviews on them. He made sure we're all complete always before leaving. Just take note to go to their office first before going to the bus so they can check your attendance (we we're waiting at the bus terminal and didn't know this, but the driver check our attendance himself) the bus also left on time but we're 1 hr late from the scheduled arrival. Also the immigration part was really fast. Just have your things with you when going down.
