Marie C.4 January 2019 | Staff: 1 | 

The driver was ok. The bus is not comfortable to sleep. The staff at the Greyhound station in LA are very rude and stressed.

Elizabeth O.25 December 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

For once, the greyhound bus was actually on time, comfortable and clean. Thanks

Iahgo B.23 October 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.22 September 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.

Yenching K.7 September 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

So so

Máté Z.28 August 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.25 August 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.21 August 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.13 August 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

Alejandro G.4 June 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

The trip went very well I was over and above all very satisfied

Alan D.4 April 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Electrical outlets did not work. Bus was over an hour late. One staff member was rude.

William C.11 February 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

It was cramped but alright.

Lorraine L.15 January 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

It was great

Granville D.5 January 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Very impressive. Trip was on time and enjoyable

Mathia L.3 January 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.27 December 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

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

Wan Adli W.19 November 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.2 October 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Very good trip!

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

Very safe thanks for the driver or staff

Nadia R.25 August 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.21 August 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

More attention from heart to services

Lisa M.26 July 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

the busride was fine but the bus was really smelly (smelled like pee)

Bunu R.24 June 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

almost good

Anara Z.25 June 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

The seats require ajustment

Ken A.21 May 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.

Vincent C.24 May 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 3 | 

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

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

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

Constanza A.31 March 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 4 |
