I'm getting on the bolt bus for now on
The driver was excellent. He was very friendly and helpful. I feel his driving was safe and yet we got to my stop about five minutes early.
Overall the staff were very helpful at both stations. They assisted us with our bags and were quite friendly.
I booked a bus for the wrong day (10/22 instead of 10/21) and the Greyhound bus employees were so slow at the desk that they couldn’t change my ticket in time and the bus pulled off without me. They charged me $20 for to get a new ticket but the price of a new one was $20 but I already paid $15. Why didn’t I just pay the difference? Instead I basically paid for 2 buses and I didn’t even miss the first one I booked it for the next day on accident and wanted to change it. The new bus was 5 hours later. I waited for it and it was 30 min delay and still we waited at Newark penn on the bus for 10 min before pulling out. So tell me why the bus at noon that day couldn’t wait for me? Once we arrived in Philly we waited in the freezing cold for 7 min as the bus driver stood there and didn’t open up the area where our bags were. Over all very disappointed in the whole service from start to finish. I will NEVER use the bus again!!
We waited for the bus in the terminal, and they told us it was delayed, first 20 minutes, then 40 minutes and then they told us it was 1 hour and 40 minutes late. 5 minutes after they told us that, someone from the staff came and told us the bus had already gone. We had to take another bus to other city, and then take the train.
Too bad the bus was cancelled 15 minutes before departure
The bus was late to depart and arrive at our destination. It looked as though the inside had never been cleaned; very uncomfortable!
Everything great, thank you
I accidentally booked the wrong city departure and they weren’t able to just exchange my ticket . So I never got on the bus I refuse to spend money on low budget company who can’t exchange your ticket.
I was supposed to board the bus at 7:55 am. But the bus never showed up until 2:30 pm when I decided to complete my journey through Uber. The worst thing was that I lost my check-in baggage . They did not give me any kind of tag or a baggage no. to put on my baggage. Once I got down at Newark, I didn't see my bag and had to complain about it. On top of it the staff at Newark station is so non-cooperative. He doesn't want to handle such situations and tried to ignore it continuously. This was my first and the worst experience ever . Never gonna book again on Greyhound.
Timeliness was zero , I was supposed to leave at 4.55 PM but we didn't leave until 6.35pm
Everything weny smooth and arrived even 10mins earlier. Thumbs up
The driver was very courteous.
The bus was one hour late.
