you picked a time comming back,,but 2 girls who had picked the later pickup,decided to take the early pick up time
the bus was full,and we had to pick up 3 more people at peral harbour on the way back.
we were delayed for ages as guy was trying to sort things out etc
so we picked up the people at pearl harbour,,would so not be legal in australia
we were jammed in like sardines it was terrible.
Id go back to the $5 each way bus,seemed to have less pick up points which was better
