We were able to take an earlier bus, which was great!! The only downside: driver smoked in the minivan.

Driver arrived 20 mins before he was due, and google maps said the trip would take just over 2 hours. But in reality it was about 90 minutes. Service was amazing, car was nice and cool, and good music!
