I never had the chane to aboard the travel and missed a very important appointment and was suspended from the event unfortunately for three months thanks be to greyhound it was a total disaster i let my kids down this Christmas because of the appointment i missed it hurts and is an unpleasant feeling i just want to yell to the top of my lungs I've even let my spouse down as well because of the lack of assistance i received as a first time traveler from Houston by way of greyhound

Habel A.September 1, 2019 | 

I bought a ticket to arrive in Houston and was directed on a bus to San Antonio. Once I arrived there I wanted to get on a bus to Houston and was told there was nothing that could be done, even though I already paid for a ticket to Houston.

Filip P.March 13, 2019 | 

Im very dissapointed. I traveled from Austin to Houston, and I wanted to leave my luggage for 12 hours in the station (i had a plane next moring to cath) and i had to buy another ticket to leave the luggage, so I paid almost a 30 dollars for the storrage.

Aneeq C.February 11, 2019 | 

Good busses, but the Greyhound station in Houston has too many people just loitering around and begging - way in the morning as well as later, although they had security in the afternoon. Felt unsafe specially in the morning hours.

Anja M.February 1, 2019 | 

Staff on the bus station was rude and there was no useful wifi on any bus station except Austin:/
