Good service, wish it was more timely and competitive in price

Hsinyu C.26 November 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Nice facility and service! Clear instructions to the departing spot and the driver was already there waiting 40 minutes before leaving. Feeling safe and secured.

Emmanuel O.20 September 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

On this occasion. Everything was straight forward. The driver was helpful as well

3h delay, with nearly no information in the terminal.

Krzysztof R.18 August 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Greyhound sucks. They cancel buses when they haven't sold enought tickets. 1 of 3 buses does not arrive at all. Information is aufull. They wont tell any body about a delay until Time of departure. 0 stars of 5

Catherine H.16 August 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Bus was three and a half hours late, no one would explain why or when our us was likely to turn up so we stood in a queue for a bus that was going to be three and a half hours late which in turn wasted a day of our holday.

Joan G.14 August 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 5 | 

Everything OK. Perhaps we had to wait too much in Baltimore.

Darriyante J.9 August 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Pretty good from what I've seen so far

Arnaud D.9 August 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Supposed to leave at 1pm and arrive at 4:30 pm. We left at 2 pm and arrived at 7:40pm! Really bad.

Mihai S.15 July 2018 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 5 | 

The bus is very old,during our travel it rained and the rain got in the bus.

Sonal A.8 July 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 |

Camille G.4 July 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Bus late, lines complicated

Manon S.21 June 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

It was a terrible Trip. The behaviour of the stuff made ne totally upset.

Larry R M.12 June 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 3 | 

The driver, DJ, was excellent. He handled the bus veey well and presented himself very decisively and professionally with a touch of humor.

Abigail W.11 June 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

the driver was rude, telling me to lower my very loud voice. we had not even departed and I was responding to the woman behind me. He also dismissed 3 passengers confirming the wifi didn't work BEFORE departure, after telling us he wouldn't be able to stop and reset it. No wifi the whole trip. I asked 5 other paszengers which they confirmed. Rude and delinquent in duty.

Gerwin B.10 June 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 2 | 

Staf did not communicatie well and seemed uninterested and indifferent

Iacopo D.7 June 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

the a/c was way too much.

Robert V.7 June 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

There was almost a 2 hours delay. Horrible for 1st time

Raymond F.23 April 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 |

Easy booking, fast and in time service, relaxing

Robin S.11 January 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

Bus was 1:15 late, and practically no information was given. The driver was a nice guy and professional however. I am going express with one of the private bus companies next time.

Cameron O.6 January 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

the bus was delayed three hours and i couldn't make it to my destination which was a waste of $26

Lukas R.1 January 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

The bus was in a very bad shape! A weird looking sauce constantly droped down from the seeling and made one row unseat-able

Michael S.9 October 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Im very disappointed my bus came late which is disappointing because I needed to be to my location on time.

Muhammad Isa W.26 September 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 5 | 

Stuck on highway owing to sudden passenger illness. Understandable and unavoidable, but unreasonable length of time and insufficient updates for delayed passengers and no compensation.

Nicole D.10 September 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 5 | 

Lots of leg room made this the best greyhound so far even thought it was 1 hr late

Maureen D.9 September 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Our bus to Baltimore ran 35 minutes late. There was absolutely no advice nor apologies from staff to inform is of this.
