We asked you to rate our drivers on their 'willingness to help', the 'information' they provided to you, their 'driving skills and safety' and their 'punctuality and efficiency'. We are proud to tell you that the average score across all four criteria was 98%.

We asked you to rate our coaches on their 'comfort' and 'cleanliness'. We are proud to tell you that the average score across both criteria was 96%.
