Got to Washington Union terminal an hour Late. Upset my plans big time. I got stranded along with my family before figuring out the right course of action for myself and then. Missed out on an important dinner appointment and a pickup arrangement. All plans for the evening got screwed up.Nobody ever informed me about the potential delay nor did they ever apologize about it. Ridiculous. My first ever travel with greyhound. I was let down in their reputation of what I had in my mind.

The driver was extremely unprofessional. Was very hostile towards passengers. Took long at every stop and yelled at everyone who spoke to her

I think we took a detour along the way, but there was no communication. In Baltimore we had to get off the bus and get onto a different bus, but again communication was very poor. We arrived in DC over two hours late.

All worked fine - delayed arrival but due to bad weather conditions- nothing predictable 😉

The trip to Washington was fantastic. However, the return trip left much to be desired.
