I didn't ride one theses buses in 20 years. Today I headed from Santiago to Sosua and the experience was amazing 😍 $5.00 Dollars only, unbelievable for a five start service.
Brand New buses!
I liked better than American Airlines.

Most important... no young drivers !
But your $ / RD$ conversion is a little bit off.

He went "from Santiago to Sosua", not from SD, so probably a little bit cheaper.

I did the same route / bus last week for RD250. The rate is no different if you wanted STI - Puerto Plata which makes it a good deal. However, the one thing I didn't like was the new designed leg rest, say good by to both your ankles and knees in an accident.

I think the last time when a metro bus had a serious accident was 6 years ago. They are very carefull with their drivers and monitor all the buses with GPS.

I just got back a few minutes ago from Puerta Plata on Caribe Tours. Same price. On the way back, we bypassed Santiago which saved about an hour.

The bus doesn't need to be in a serious accident for what I said about the new designed leg rest. Now the new seats will make you feel like you are sitting in 1st class in a airlplane, especially with all the leg room, and reclining options. .
