Improve your services and your conductors are not friendly, your competitors are taking your position, because you are always increasing the fare when schools closes and when opens , when your competitors are not doing so.


What a poor timing management by modern coast bus service!, Just imagine of keeping clients/customers on stages at voi with no one recieving and updating the progress and destination of the bus. Your service lady at voi stage speaking ill and disappointing customers is uncouth and intolerable.
