We arrived 1 hour ahead of time. Over-all the trip is comfortable, but there is no WIFI in the bus. Hope they can have one soon. Also, pls specify that the voucher needs to be printed. Dapat may ready printer sila to print voucher ng mga passengers. Need to improve over-all customer support.

Well, what I don't like is that you have to get a ticket from a redemption booth. this just adds up to the process. why don't your conductors have digital scanners instead to validate the tickets.

We are super seniors. They have our names and date of birth. We missed the option of indicating we were seniors and have our senior ID with us but the person behind the counter did not give us the senior discount. In addition she did not tell us that we go to gate 4 by taking the escalator near their counter. We had to walk all the to the direction of the numbering only to find out that it was on the second floor and had to walk back. She should have been careful to explain to a senior the easiest way to our gate.

I like the lazyboy, USB port and clean restroom. Bus left on time and arrived at the destination early. Music could’ve been optional or atleast low volume as we wanted a quiet ride to sleep on the way.
