The bus arrived on time at the station and the staff immediately helped to load the luggage. The price for the journey was very reasonable, which is typical for FlixBus. To keep busy during the journey, wifi access was available to passengers. There were also power sockets and air conditioning above each seat. There were no toilets on the bus.
