Davi A.January 10, 2019 | Staff: 3 | 

Rude driver

Elizabeth M.January 2, 2019 | Staff: 1 | 

This bus NEVER sent me a notification that were two streets down to the place that told me to look for the bus. I am disputing my charges.

Olga R.December 27, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

I was very concerned someone in the bus didn't show his I. D. And that was not good because we didn't even know inreality he could have been someone dangerous

Diane L.December 24, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

On one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, there was only one ticket agent. The waiting room was pandemonium. Bad administrative management.

Wondimagegnehu G.December 17, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Over all its nice but had poor wifi connection, and bus routing given on the schedual was a non-stop but it had about 2 or 3 stops in b/n to board other passengers. Thanks

Diane R.November 26, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

I couldn't find the bus pick up location. There were no signs, no one standing outside to help anyone. Myself and another bus passenger raced around everywhere to find the bus and I was early - thankfully the other passenger found the bus-found me and waved me over otherwise I would have missed the bus.

Adenike I.November 21, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

I love it, it was faster than every other buses I have taken.

Shonna W.October 2, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

The ride itself was a very pleasant experience. The bus was very clean and well-ventilated. The free water was a nice touch. The driver was friendly and drove safely. Finding the bus stop was a different story. The address on the ticket led me to believe that the bus pickup location was AT Penn Station, when it was not. The pickup location is actually ADJACENT to Penn Station. The bus stop is located at Raymond Street EAST between Ferry Street and Edison Place. I arrived at the bus station 30 mins before my departure time, but almost missed my bus because I didn't have this important detail. The person at the Information Desk inside Penn Station had no idea where or what an OurBus was. Please print this information ON THE TICKET ITSELF.

Harpreet S.September 4, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

Clean bus with professional driver.

Amani P.September 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Every thing is good, but it will be convenient for travelers if you specify bus stop with some board indicating that yours

Isabel R.August 25, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The driver not nice

Lidy J.August 20, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

More than 2 hours of delay.

Dulce P.July 25, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Aweful service bus got delayed 3 times and I had to fight to get on a 5pm bus instead of the 1:10 I had schedule I will never use greyhound again ever I rather ride in bolt or megabus

Bruny K.July 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus was 3 hours late on arrival and they almost made us get out of the current bus to go on another one that would have taken even longer to arrive

Donald S.June 25, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

Fine young man.

Praloy C.June 4, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Everything about the trip was perfect

Zvi R.May 14, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus broke down in Baltimor . and they told the passengerd to find a way to get to Washington . no customer service

Jessica P.October 10, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

After a minor incident with the window breaking. The bus drive appogised took responsibility and swiftly moved the very full bus of people to a new one i was very impressed with his actions and he did a good job recoving time there after very well done to the driver i will recommend this service

Mulku Sulaiman B.August 30, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | 

I was wet all through my journey...the top of the bus is leaking from the waste water from the AC and its dripping right on passengers. That should be looked into asap.

Peter B.April 21, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Comfortable, on time, and considerate driver
