Generally it was fine. However, managing the luggage needs more attention as passengers had to put their own stuff without any support.

A good ride!
Bus Business, Transnasional MY, Aug 13, 2019
For some reason -- at the half-way lunch stop we were told to transfer to a different bus .. a lower quality bus. We were combined with the people already on that other bus. :( We had our preferred seat in the front on our original bus. Getting stuffed on the other, lower quality bus we had to sit in the middle of the bus. Not happy about it.
Bus Business, Transnasional MY, Jul 18, 2019
