The bus was okay...but the wifi is limited..thats not good

Oluwapamilerin K.31 July 2019 | 

Greyhound is still one of the best ways in which I travel across the US. I enjoy their services most of the time. I was disappointed for the first time when I was told that the bus that was to take me from Ports Authority Greyhound Station at 10:15pm on Thursday 25th July, 2019 to arrive Detroit at 11:30am on Friday 26th July, had no driver to take us. I had a 2:00pm appointment in Detroit on Friday 26th July which I ultimately missed.

Olivia D.18 June 2019 | 

This bus trip was probably the worst I have ever gone on. The bus driver was getting directions from the guests, I’m pretty sure we drove in circles at one point, it smelled so bad, there was a drunk man flashing his light, there was another man yelling up and down the bus, and we ended up getting to Chicago 2 hours late. There was so warning from the drive about how late we would be, so my arrangements of where I was staying in Chicago got messed up because of how late I got in. Overall, it was a terrible and uncomfortable experience. I would not recommend the greyhound to anyone and would love compensation for what I went through.

Trina K.19 March 2019 | 

My ticket said 7:30 but got there at 8:30

Anil S.12 October 2018 | 

Sheer carelessness.

Jose De Jesus P.14 July 2018 | 

5 hour delay, no direct buses from detroit to chicago. Nasty greyhound station that looks like a homeless shelter

Krishna S.2 May 2018 | 

Overall a good experience. Seats were not recliner but were good. Not recommended for long journeys.

Ahmad A.31 March 2018 | 

Bus was uncomfortable, smelly, loud. No room whatsoever, seats were awful. Staff was ok, bus on time. Still, terrible.

Allexis W.19 March 2018 | 

STAFF WAS SOME OF THE RUDEST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. GREYHOUND SAID MY TICKETS WERE UNAVAILABLE AND COULDN'T BE FOUND. I WAS TOLD "IF YOU HAVE A PRINTER IN YOUR POCKET TO PRINT THEM OUT GO AHEAD" OTHERWISE YOU'RE NOT GETTING ON THE BUS. WE WE'RE NOT ALLOWED TO BOARD THE BUS AND INSTEAD HAD TO GO ALL THE WAY BACK HOME AND DRIVE TO CHICAGO. NOW I AM OUT THE $200 I SPENT ON 3 BUS TICKETS, FOR THEM TO TELL ME THEY COULD NOT HELP ME AT ALL.

Geoffrey V.4 January 2018 | 

3 hours delays No informations Bus dirty

Earnestine H.5 August 2017 | 

The bus was one hour late.

Yahya B.6 June 2017 | 

Timing was not good, and the driver had stops that made the entire trip 1 hour longer.

Jose G.13 June 2017 | 

No I'm satisfied thanks !!!

Catalina S.20 May 2017 | 

Yhe bus was one hour late

Quindara L.17 April 2017 | 

I'll never travel this way again to be disrespected and talked down to over a simple question.

Colleen C.31 January 2017 | 

Bus was very clean, appreciate the Drivers welcoming spirit. Smooth ride.

Dneiqua S.20 January 2017 | 

I was treated poorly the staff was rude and not concerned about my safety this was the worst trip ever thanks to Detroit greyhound not to mention head of security told me the best thing for me to do is let everything go

Amber B.28 December 2016 | 

My bus was 2 hours late, absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable. I will never book with Greyhound again.

Cameron G.29 December 2016 | 

No assigned seating so good luck sitting with anyone you travel with. And most people on my bus were in prison recently. Safe to say I am not going to travel with greyhound ever again.

Ryan D.18 December 2016 | 

Extremely rude staff at the Detroit station. Unless I get a free ride coupon in the mail; Megabus/Amtrak til I'm dead and gone.

Renu A.22 October 2016 | 

The driver was very friendly
