Iahgo B.October 23, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The worst experience in my life. The bus supposed to leave at 10 pm and they sold more tickets than possible, so I took the bus at midnight and arrived 3 hours late. Never more.

Catherine Y.September 22, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

Busbud did not provide a good service with the Greyhound ticket purchases. Additionally our bus was delayed by an hour.

So so

Máté Z.August 28, 2018 | Staff: 1 | 

Bus was supposed to leave at 1:45AM , instead at last minute they said it will be late 3-4 hours!! Outrageous

Arron S.August 25, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

horrendous. 3 hours late for all buses (about 8 buses), i asked why they were late. i was told to speak to customer service. she refused to explain to me. 2 staff were helpful, the rest were just frustrating and useless. 2nd awful experience within a week with greyhound

Anne-julie C.August 21, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

we were 1:15h late, many stops and rudeness (open the lights on and speak loud in the mic in the middle of the night), there is no enough space inside (uncomfortable), the wifi connection was poor and the was shaking a lot!

Carlisle R.August 13, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

today has become a 12 hour ordeal going from los angeles to san francisco... I got to the greyhound station at 7:30am, my bus was delayed over 3 hours & it's 8pm now we are still not to san francisco yet

Very impressive. Trip was on time and enjoyable

Mathia L.January 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

My only complaints are the price and the bathroom, but mainly the price. The cabins and seats were excellent and clean. Considering it was right after the New Year, a few minutes delay wasn't bad at all.

Amit N.December 27, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Excellent service. We reached 2 hours earlier than scheduled time.

Wan Adli W.November 19, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 3 | 

The bus needs maintenance on the interior. The chairs are not comfortable and the ride was very bumpy for San Fran to LA

Gabriele M.October 2, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Very good trip!

Maria Teresa S.September 15, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Very safe thanks for the driver or staff

Nadia R.August 25, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus was 4 hours late with no explanation or any excuse from the driver. The driver then stuck the bus in the middle of nowhere, we had then to wait for a toll truck to help us. We arrived in SF at 4 am instead of 9pm! This is a shame!

Qiaoci H.August 21, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 |

The wife was bad and there was no power in the bus.....

Ken A.May 21, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 4 | 

Bus was dirty and seats in disrepair. The suspension needs attention,and the toilet smelt. The drivers speed alarmed passengers. Could not recommend this service to anyone.

Sergio B.April 9, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus had a strong smell throughout of the uncleaned restroom. The chairs were not comfortable.
