Bus from Nairobi to Moshi

I was told there is something called The Riverside Shuttle from Nairobi to Moshi. I am wondering if you could tell me how safe it is? I am going to be on my own (27 yr old female) when I land in Nairobi and will likely stay the night in the city. I know it leaves at 8am and takes about 6 hours. My main concern is safety and any potential hassles/hazzards I might encounter at the boarder of Kenya and Tanzania.

Thanks!

Riverside is as safe as any, there are always risks involved with vehicular travel in East Africa. You will most probably be hassled at the border, but not from the passport control or customs officials; rather you will most probably be hassled by Maasai women trying to sell you jewerly trinkets; they are difficult to avoid or get rid of.

The shuttle buses picks clients from Jomo Kenyatta international Aiport at about 7:00am and in the morning and at about 01:30pm in the afternoon. The bus has two pick ups everyday.
