Horrible service

Sahbina E.March 4, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

It was great. Got there a little late, but it was snowing.

Davidson S.January 27, 2019 | 

Keep doing the good job I used to travel with greyhound but never satisfied always the long wait and the buses dirty this one was different

Mary B.December 24, 2018 | Staff: 3 | 

The only complaint I have is the staff st the Philadelphia Peter Pan counter.. the young gal was rather Rude !

Ryan R.October 29, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 2 | 

Bus driver mentions rules at the beginning like a mindless robot and then no one enforces them. People are loud on their phones, listen to music without headphones, and aren’t considerate of anyone else.

Sanjiv S.October 23, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 3 | 

I was appalled at the rudeness of the lady at the Boston greyhound bus station office. First i did not know that my transfer to logan airport is thru peter pan and not by greyhound. When i asked the only lady available at the counter of greyhound at Boston bus station on arrival at boston at around 9.15, the lady in question was absolutwlt rude, insolent and refused to guide me in details. She was ready to pack off for the day not able to understand the troubles of a traveller who could not find any greyhound bus that could be taking me to logan. She just told me to go to gates 20, 21 and 22 and said greyhound does not offer logan services. When i pointed out the number of the bus in my itinerary that was supposed to take me to logan, the lady in question was rude and refused to give me a detailed understanding. A terrible experience though my previous experience with greyhound was really sound.

Alana H.September 1, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

Safe driver other than leaving an hour later than scheduled seamless trip

Sara K.August 25, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

My first bus left a hour and a half late from Philadelphia: no explanation given. My second bus got to Boston a hour and a half later then expected and had no internet and no outlets on it. The staff were curt but not polite.

Loic D.August 18, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Rude people, bus cancelled, nothing good

Pamela M.August 13, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

Because my 1st bus was a little late on arriving I missed my connection bus by 2 minutes I was only given 10 mins to get off 1 bus to get in another, which would have been fine if the traffic in NYC wasn't its usual busy self !!! Very frustrating when I had to wait an extra 11/2 with a child The boy in the office was very little help and uninterested in me and my queries

Agustina G.July 15, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

The service has been excellent every time I took it but last friday my trip to Boston was cancelled and I had to wait 6 hours in the station without any notice from your staff.

Marlon T.June 25, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

2 hours late. Good driving but bus driver should have made announcements via speaker. Information on departure delays in New York was pretty much non-existing.

Ashley R.June 11, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

My first bus was 30 min late and resulted in me missing my connector in NY. There were no more buses leaving from NY and there was no staff for Peter Pan there to help. It was 10 Pm in Ny. I will never be taking Peter Pan again. I ended up having to Uber to another station to catch a 1 am bus.

Peter L.June 2, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

A good deal.

Kenloy M.May 16, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Philadelphia to Boston one whole hour late

Kevin B.May 8, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

Our bus on the first leg of my Phl-Bos trip was clean and good general condition, but was obviously and older bus. My major concern was no seat belts! The bus departed on time and arrived in NYC ahead of the estimated arrival time. Our driver was very polite,and professional, she reviewed all onboard rules throughly, engaged in light humor, and when alerted that a passenger was smoking during our trip, quickly and effectively had the smoker stop under threat of being put off the bus. She was a star! I was surprised and grateful the NYC PP office allowed me to change my travel itinerary and take a bus that was heading directly to Boston rather then the Hartford to Boston scheduled. I didn’t realize PP had that range of routes and flexibility to accommodate travelers so I now have a more favorable opinion of the carrier. The Express to Boston arrive 15 minutes ahead of schedule. The driver was professional and courteous as well. He enforced earplug policy and quieted a disturbance onboard between two passengers with skill and discernment.

Grace H.April 6, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

Terrible metallic noise the whole trip

Francois Rene R.April 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Thanks a lot for (1) timeliness, and (2) letting me board the earlier bus from NYC to BOS! Too bad the power outlets were broken on the PHL-NYC bus.

Emma W.December 15, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Awful service. VERY disappointed. Never using again.

Norman G.November 25, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Lots of Holiday traffic but the driver made up most of the time even though he was going through a driving rain. Very impressive.

Bashifatu B.November 23, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Amazing trip

Donna C.November 15, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

The shift supervisor at the port authority was extremely helpful to me, i wish i had his name... Greyhound is lucky to have him on your team.

Ozge Y.October 2, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

It was more than few stops which was not told before

Sergey M.September 13, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 3 | 

Seats could be much more comfortable.

Wifif was slow Big delay

Sam W.August 27, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

I would rather put pins in my eyeballs then ever have to get the greyhound from Philadelphia to Boston again, such a bad company

Katy S.August 22, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

Worst journey of my life. Delays, no information and disrespectful staff that allowed incorrect passengers to board so those with genuine tickets they had no space for.
