I am highly satisfied.

Kathryn W.January 8, 2020 | 

Bus driver was very nice and considerate but vehicle quality was low. Strong draft through gaps in bus walls, and only about 5 non-functioning charging ports for the entire bus when charging was promised.

Jane T.December 24, 2019 | 

The Greyhound bus station in Albany needs to be updated! There are people of all ages lining up with their bags to be able to get a bus seat. I am a Senior (79 years old) and my back hurt from having to stand up and be ready with my bags in a chaotic line of people waiting for the bus to arrive. There are not enough benches st the station to accommodate everyone - first of all. Second - There needs to be a change in the system - The travelers could be given a number depending on when they arrive at their gate at the station - then they would feel ok with sitting down until their number was called - instead of trying to get a good place in line for fear that they won’t get a good seat on the bus.

Jordan O.December 14, 2019 | 

Bus was two hours late. There wasn’t any greyhound staff in Albany, so no one could provide updates. I called customer service and they had no idea where the bus was.

Andrii V.November 9, 2019 | 

Considering that bus departed late, the staff at Albany station was laughing about it and not taking into consideration that people are in rush to get on time.

Peter K.October 15, 2019 | 

Actually my bus left on time and because there were so many travelers they added an express bus non stop to Boston which I got on not needing to make any stops along the way and arrived early in Boston at South station.

Vincent T.August 19, 2019 | 

Bus left one hour late from Albany and arrived one hour late in Boston. It bus was on time I would have given top rating.

Marine N.July 24, 2019 | 

Timing was annoying. Bus itself was fine

Adam F.July 21, 2019 | 

Good ride. Bus was a bit dirty and there was no AC

Thamanthran R.June 7, 2019 | 

I had a good trip bus was clean to problems will use this bus again

Maud M.April 10, 2019 | 

Late and nobody to tell us it would be late and how late. Disappointed. My sit was broken.

Jurjen H.March 12, 2019 | 

Staff at Albany was very indifferent about our bus leaving more than 45 minutes late. Complete lack of information.

Jane T.December 24, 2018 | 

Great driver - spoke to us very well about the upcoming bus trip. He was friendly yet businesslike. And we arrived in Boston EARLY! I couldn’t Believe it!

Erin S.November 26, 2018 | 

Bus left late. Driver took wrong turn adding over an hour to an already delayed trip. Passengers helped get bus back on correct route eventually but overall I would not take this bus or recommend it to others.

Amna S.September 20, 2018 | 

First couple rides were horrible. One hour delays, extremely dirty etc. Albany to Boston 1:55 was on time, driver was great, but bathroom still extremely dirty. Do they ever clean buses?

Filip B.September 4, 2018 | 

We had 1 hour delay in Albany, but the bus went straight to Boston so we were there 30 min earlier than on schedule.

Judith F.August 24, 2018 | 

Booked a 10am coach which didn’t arrive till 11.10 then had to wait 45 mins to get onboard

Joanne L.July 13, 2018 | 

6:30 am bus on 7/12 from Albany to Boston was a no show. People with 6:30 tickets were still waiting to get on the 10 am bus. And then the 10 am bus did not arrive at 10 am. In short, a long line of confused and irritated customers could get no information from anyone at the station. A little bit of communications goes a long way. There wasn't any. Bus left 30 min after schedule. To his credit, driver did a lot to make up time. Condition of bus? Smelly. To be expected on a bus starting in Cleveland 12 hours earlier? In short, it was a bad customer service experience. If Megabus or Bolt serviced the route between Albany and Boston I'd be on it.

My first time using bus

Margaret W.May 11, 2018 | 

I have traveled extensively and this was my first experience on Greyhound. The bus was old, dirty and drove like a truck. One of the escape hatches blew open in the first 5 minutes of the trip and scared me half to death as I was sitting under it and it felt like it went wizzing passed my head. The driver tried to fix but was unable. He just wanted to leave it open but the passengers insisted it get closed because of the threat of rain.So a passenger actually climbed on the roof to fix it which took about 20 minutes. If he hadn’t stepped up I’m not sure what would’ve happened. The rest of the trip was uneventful but I’m not sure if I’ll ever use Greyhound again.

Saswati K.May 7, 2018 | 

Good service! It would be helpful get more routes connecting smaller cities and also more direct routes between cities

Zachary P.May 7, 2018 | 

The bus was extremely hot the entire trip with the fans not effective at all at reducing the discomfort. The bus was on time though which was appreciated.

Dara B.May 3, 2018 | 

Good experience.

Christine D.April 27, 2018 | 

Great driver, bus on time. What a pity Greyhound doesn't invest in its *vehicles* -- tatty, tired seats and soiled upholstery are definitely not an advertisement for its services. No tray tables. Compare with sleek modern bus services in Quebec and elsewhere: day and night.

Nicole T.April 17, 2018 | 

This was only my second bus trip through Greyhound, but my bus arrived two 1/2 hours late today

Peter A.March 31, 2018 | 

This was a terrible experience. The driver was 35 minuteslate to pick us up. Then he got lost twice. I arrived at my destination 1 hour and 15 minutes late.

Megan B.March 15, 2018 | 

very happy with the staff on the phone and in person, they were able to exchange my trip over the phone and they printed out my ticket on site.

Stacey S.February 17, 2018 | 

Not only was the bus not there at the scheduled time, the bus didn’t show up at the next time we were told it would be available. We had to wait an hour and a half to be able to get on the bus, and we arrived nearly an hour behind schedule to Boston.

Sms K.December 29, 2017 | 

Bus was 2 hrs late and there wasnt any delay notification

Alison M.December 17, 2017 |
