    Unlike private transportation, shared rides typically take longer as customers wait for fellow passengers to load or unload as we pick up or drop off. In addition to being affected by other passengers sharing the ride, travel time is dependent on geography, weather conditions, peak hours, holidays, major protests, and traffic conditions. Because of these variables, we cannot provide an exact travel time.


    At times there may be delays and changes to normal operations due to severe weather, strikes and traffic incidents. Whenever possible, Hello Travel Panama will try to notify customers of these conditions in advance.



    Passengers who leave the vehicle at stops and rest breaks are responsible for re-boarding the vehicle at the scheduled departure time.
