This trip was a nightmare from beginning to endi don't know if i can do it again

Jarrel G.April 30, 2019 | 

I enjoyed the the service to Chicago don't know how it is back to newyork yet

Erin P.April 11, 2019 | 

Drivers and the trip were fine. Upon my arrival at the Chicago Downtown Greyhound Station, the bigger female security officer with braids was yelling at and harassing customers because she did not like where they were smoking. She did not call the police so it was very obvious that was all she was doing. I was appalled by this.

Ann P.February 12, 2019 | 

I think your customers were sexually molesting me on the bus and in the station. And I bet it was not the tall guy I met and spoke with on the bus and in the station. I complained to security In Cleveland and she told me she didnt believe me and that is what I anticipated so I did not try before that comment or again.the buses and drivers are fine nothing wrong there it seems the problem is your customers and someone was bothering me in nyc. I think I am missing a bag of socks etc.

Nutta A.August 12, 2018 | 

Every buses are late!! At least 30 minutes to 1.30 hours

Marcos F.August 9, 2018 | 

Crappy service.

Janice K B.July 28, 2018 | 

The seats are waaaay too close to one another. I could not move. The trip was a misery and Cleveland’s station is the worst thing I’ve seen in a long time. I have to take it back home but never ever ever again.

Jennifer C.July 9, 2018 | 

Work on the timing

Richard H.June 28, 2018 | 

It's good.

Stanislas M.December 15, 2017 | 

Great safe driving through the snow storm we got there late but in one piece !

Francis O.November 20, 2017 | 

The check-in was quick and easy. The bus ride was on time and followed everything as was outlined in the reciept. Three drivers at diffferent times, All good and entertaininng. However, I was disappointed when the driver drove away and left a traveler at the last resting area before South Bend despite seeing the traveller running from the restaurant to catch the bus. That killed my spirit depite a nice experience the whole jouney. Nevertheless, the bus made it at Chicago exactly 2 mins earlier from the time promised. I wish those two mins were used to wait for other travellers as they used the bathroom or buy food....Overall, am satisfied given the cost.

Stephanie S.September 18, 2017 | 

After the first stop, we were scheduled to re-board at 8:05a, due to no driver, we didn't reboard until 11:42p.

Joyce O.July 1, 2017 | 

The drivers are very helpful ,informative and smart. Check in time in New York should be on time and less stressful, please!!!!

Wiktoria W.June 21, 2017 | 

I arrived to the bus the same hour it was supposed to leave. Th driver didn't let me in saying that he doesn't have time. It was so important for me and he just closed the door in front of me.

Svetlana B.June 6, 2017 | 

I m going to use your service all the time.

Augustine N.April 15, 2017 |

Klaudia K.September 3, 2016 | 

Driver from NY was really rude. He was yelling at me and said that he doesnt care about me and my friend. Even though we were lost and scared. Thats why my trip wasnt very comfortable. I wouldnt recommed this guy to anybody
