Brianna H.March 12, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

The bus that I was on did not have working outlets which is really important for travelers. I was really unsatisfied by this.

Nicholas F.November 8, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Unbeatable for the price

Ivelisse A.October 30, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Great service. Good drivers. Good value for money. Wifi on board (it works)! Plenty of options for schedules. You'll often see tourists, students and families traveling from LA to San Diego. Very satisfied.

Casmir R.August 12, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 4 | 

Someone spilt a drink on the bus and we were off time by 30-40mins but traffic probs

David B.June 18, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

Having the bus boarded by ICE agents --shades of Nazi Germany-- means next time I'll take the train.

James D.June 17, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

I don't ask any more of a bus than to be on time and it wasn't

Julia R.June 1, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 4 | 

I expected a little bit more comfort!

Helena S.May 18, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus smelled like piss

Anne-laure P.April 28, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 |

Tereza M.March 10, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 3 |

Anthony C.March 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Bus was not able to complete the journey due to breakdowns. The connecting bus had left hrs earlier.

Emma C.February 7, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

It was Ok

Makamas J.October 8, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

It is the easiest transportation and very comfortable during on the way.

Jason P.September 18, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

We didn't manage to get on quick enough and thus once we got on most people were sat by themselves and thus as we were travelling with children we were forced to take the remaining 2 seats together - which just happened to include materially broken seats (note at least 25% of the seats on the bus were broken). There was also no air conditioning so it was very uncomfortable. We ended up getting off early and using alternative transport. Entirely dissatisfied!!

Maria S.August 11, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 2 | 

The seats were ripped, the bathroom smelled.

Kennedy S.August 5, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Pls keep to departure time!

Kevin V.August 1, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Aircon was to cold

Mitchell T.July 21, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 3 | 

The bus airconditioner had dirty water leaking out on myself and other passengers throughout the whole trip. Will never travel with greyhound again.

Mona Lisa H.July 23, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

I've ridden greyhound in Texas but this was way better. On time!!!

Suheil A.July 23, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

The driver was excellent and very patient

Julia P.June 21, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

Wlan not working in some buses and stations; 1 employee was extremely friendly - another not really

Ruth G.May 21, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The smell is the first thing that greated me as soon as I stepped inside!! Then, the seat was very uncomfortable.... Felt as though I was sliding down. The bus was 45 minutes late arriving at my destination

Damali V.April 17, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 1 | 

The gentleman who let passengers through the gate and checked tickets was very rude to me when I didn't realize I wasn't standing in the right place. I'm not sure of the type of people he deals with on a regular basis but I am a very nice person and didn't deserve not be guided in a kind way.

Ma cristina T.March 19, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Super delayed

Francesco C.February 23, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 3 | 

Stinky bus driven by the worst driver ever. Bad experience

Luana C.February 18, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Everything was good!!

Patricia M.October 19, 2016 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 3 | 

I didn't like to be delayed one hour. I had schedule to follow and that changed some of my do list things...

John H.October 9, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus was 1 hour late. After announcing that the bus would not depart on time, there were no updates until the bus arrived. No one from Greyhound ever said anything about being sorry for the delay, or provided any estimated revised schedule. In addition to the delay, the San Diego station did not have enough seating and the restrooms were closed. The power outlets on the bus did not work.
