Awesome ride

Raphael G.March 15, 2019 | Staff: 1 | 

Horrible. The bus didn't have Wi-Fi and the power supplies didn't work as well. The driver told me he couldn't do anything about it. Furthermore there was ot any plates at our seat to eat ! My last time with greyhound !

Guillem M.March 9, 2019 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus was almost 4 hours late. That's not acceptable

Huseyin S.March 2, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus was very loud. Seats are really uncomfortable, impossible to sleep

Feras H.March 1, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

In general all good.

Yuhuan Z.February 27, 2019 | Staff: 4 | 

None of the electric plugs on the bus worked. It was also extremely cold.

Jean Sebastien B.February 27, 2019 | Staff: 4 | 

Great punctuality. Nothing to say about that. I found the comfort on board rather basic though, seats could be deeper and a bit more comfy. Good point to the driver, nice and friendly. The minus goes to the stop in Albani with a very poor choice of location with total absence of service, looking like a rather gloomy place.

Ruth Martine B.February 26, 2019 | Staff: 4 | 

great but the Wi-Fi didn't work

Gabriel F.February 23, 2019 | 

Usually good but today was awful! Emergency window wasn’t properly attached and it did a lot of noise during the trip

Fatoumata M.February 18, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

I was very satisfied

Patrick C.February 9, 2019 | Staff: 4 | 

This time bus was comfortable seating, actually had heat so we weren’t freezing and ample room. Good going greyhound 👍

Nutdanai C.January 26, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus was great, pretty comfy and everything was on time

Capucine O.January 22, 2019 | Staff: 4 | 

Driver annoying

Derek C.January 21, 2019 | Staff: 1 | 

their staff lied about if the bus was even going to go. they told me it was, and then it didnt.

Ariel Christopher A.January 7, 2019 | Staff: 2 | 

old bus

Alexandr V.January 6, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

Very good service, professional driver.

Alix B.January 6, 2019 | 

INADMISSIBLE 7 heures de retard et sans chauffage !!!

Gabriel F.January 3, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

The best company for US trips. After so many delays with greyhound and their bus changes in Albany, NY. I will never ever take a greyhound bus again. I know that greyhound has some shares on Adiron but Adiron has a better service.

Harry D.December 26, 2018 | Staff: 3 | 

Terrible last time

Violeta T.December 22, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

Good service

Florent L.December 20, 2018 | Staff: 3 | 

No Wi-Fi and not really confortable

Jacqueline F.December 17, 2018 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus rattled and squeaked. The chairs were sagging and had no support, extremely uncomfortable. The arm rests were well worn and broken. The whole bus was very dirty on the inside, I didn’t want to touch anything. There was no power sockets at every seat and no wifi the entire journey. The temperature was cold on the bus. Terrible journey, would never use them again.

Jean Yvon B.December 10, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

Le bus était resté un endroit pendant 45 minutes .je ne vois pas pourquoi.

Lucien B.November 29, 2018 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus is cold, not clean, and the driver is very disrespectful

Juan Carlos C.November 27, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

Unfortunately the seats are very small and the space unacomodating. But all was clean.

Kleanthi I.November 26, 2018 | Staff: 1 | 

It was terrible! Old and dirty bus and without heating!all passengers were wearing gloves and hat! There were many stops and trere was a delay! I do not recommend it and I will not choose it again!

Guil D.November 23, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

The Wifi on bus did not work and we were stuck for too long in the CA-US border. All the rest was more or less fine.

Ava M.November 23, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

It was extremely cold and the wifi didn’t work properly

Sherry Jane R.November 18, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Comfy seats, courteous drivers, drives very safely and on time departure.

Stefan B.October 29, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 4 | 

We had to switch buses so the departure was delayed. Other than that, nothing bad to say about my trip with Greyhound

So you’ve decided to visit the Big Apple over the weekend? You’ve come to the right place to book your travel! Here are a few tips to help you on your journey.

Planning

Bus service from Montreal to New York is offered by Adirondack Trailways and Greyhound, and you can easily compare schedules and fares for both directly on Busbud. Both are reliable companies, so choose according to your schedule!

You can usually take the bus as early as 7:00 am or as late as 11:45pm, and prices range from $73-87.

Compared to the train, where you typically only have one departure option per day, taking the bus offers the most flexibility for your trip.

Things To Remember The Day You Travel

The day of your departure, I recommend arriving at at the Berri-UQAM station at least 45 mins in advance, or as someone who is usually fashionably late, I always set an hour before in my calendar. This will give you the time to comfortably arrive at the station, and you can enjoy the station’s coffee shop and clean restrooms until onboarding. Arriving early also gives you better seating selection— read on to learn why this is useful.

Essential things to pack: a book or magazine to read (I always bring my Kindle!), snacks, headphones for music and maybe a movie or three on your tablet, smartphone or laptop. My favorite playlist for bus rides is a tropical house beats playlist called Tropical Beats curated by Spotify Australia & New Zealand.

Note: Remember to print your ticket from home or work and bring it with you!

The Trip

You’re in for a fairly long ride, so I recommend sitting near the front as you’ll usually get a quieter crowd near the driver. If you take the night bus, everyone’s usually asleep by 2am, so any seat is fine in that case.

If you choose to ride during the day, pick a window seat for an enjoyable ride watching the beautiful Adirondacks scenery.

You’ll be entering New York state at the Lacolle border, and the stop is fairly quick (30mins) unless you’re traveling during a major holiday season like Christmas where processing can take over an hour. Make sure to declare everything you have, including food. Processed food like granola bars won’t raise an eyebrow, but fresh exotic fruit might. Officially, you must declare all vegetables, fruits and meat you’re bringing with you.

Arriving at the Port Authority Bus Terminal is fun, because you’re in the center of Manhattan, and the streets are bustling at all hours. Once you step off the bus, you’ll only be 2 minutes away from Time Square on foot. This beats getting off at the airport any day!

For coffee, walk down to Piccolo Café on 8th & 40th Street. For a more substantial meal, walk north to Margon (as seen on 30 Rock) on 46th Street,a good Cuban diner a few blocks away from the station. Other good eats are Xi’an Famous Foods for some Chinese noodles on 45th Street near 5th Avenue, as well as Marseille, on the corner of 9th & 44th Street if you’re longing for some French cuisine already. The latter is a sit-down bistro, whereas the first two are good value and quick eats.

Why choose the bus over train or plane?

If you’re still shopping around, here’s the most compelling reason to choose the bus.

Advantage over train: A quick price check shows that the Amtrak train is $138 roundtrip from Montreal to New York City, whereas the least expensive bus option is $99 for the same trip. The train is longer and more expensive, so the only reason you’d choose it is for a bit of extra legroom. But honestly, I’d rather take the savings over slightly more comfort, especially since the buses are plenty comfortable for my needs.

Furthermore, when I searched on Amtrak, there was only one single possible departure time and one single return time that I could choose from, whereas for the bus I could choose from 5 different departure times from early morning 7:30am to 11:45pm, giving me much more flexibility to schedule my trip.

One thing I gotta give to the train though… they have a snack car. When taking the bus, always bring snacks with you!

Advantage over plane: A quick price check for next week shows that the plane costs $250, which is almost double the price of the bus. While it’s true that you save four hours of travel time by flying, once you factor in the taxi ride to the airport, gate check and boarding as well as the taxi once you land, the time difference isn’t as significant and you’ve spent a lot more money. And that’s without mentioning traffic! The bus station is much more accessible by public transit.

P.S. Legroom on the bus > legroom on the plane.

Saving time by sleeping on the bus: If you’re an easy sleeper like me, choosing to travel on the night bus gives you an additional perk— upon arrival, you have a full day to visit and enjoy NYC instead of losing a day to get there. Simply drop of your luggage at your hostel, hotel or host’ place, freshen up and you’re good to go.

About Bus Travel

Bus Travel Tips

Make friends with the driver. They usually know a lot about your destination and may even recommend which side of the bus to sit on to get the best views on the road between Montreal and New York!

Much more than a mere vehicle taking you from Montreal to New York, riding the bus will expose you to some of most stunning panoramas while enroute to your final bus stop.

Buses have the smallest carbon footprint of all motorized transport modes. A bus going from Montreal to New York will emit half the CO2 emitted by a train, and radically less than a car or an airplane.

Make a music playlist for your bus ride from Montreal to New York, and enjoy the scenery to tunes from your own personal soundtrack.

Did you know?

Did you know there are on average 4,400 intercity bus departures every day in the US only? This number has been growing for 9 years in a row, yay!

The average number of passengers on a coach bus is 32 meaning that a bus could replace a minimum of at least 30 cars!

The bus driver with the longest career in the world drove more than 2,000,000 miles and is a happy World Record holder.
