  1. Wow so cheap. Can we tip the driver? I think taking the bus ride is much more comfortable than riding a Taxi. Thanks for sharing. You are the best.

  2. Thanks bro for this very informative video! Couple questions: how do we know which bus stops to wait for this bus for pickup along the route? I guess the best time to take this bus is at night? For the reason of least traffic on the road? Does the airlines have online check-ins? Thanks man! 👍👍👍
