Greyhound Detroit Chicago recent customer reviews

It was 35 people on the bus and a dog bus driver didn’t know where he was going continued to ask Passenger Ford directions

Robert E.December 12, 2020

They let us off on the wrong stop. We were suppose to get off in 95th but instead they let us off downtown. And I had to get an Uber. I paid just as much for the Uber than the greyhound. Did I mention my daughter had her 4 month old infant with her which is why I tried to get her closer to her destination. Very disappointed.

Taylor S.January 10, 2020

Greyhound is still one of the best ways in which I travel across the US. I enjoy their services most of the time. I was disappointed for the first time when I was told that the bus that was to take me from Ports Authority Greyhound Station at 10:15pm on Thursday 25th July, 2019 to arrive Detroit at 11:30am on Friday 26th July, had no driver to take us. I had a 2:00pm appointment in Detroit on Friday 26th July which I ultimately missed.
