I'm very upset with the way I was treated last night .. I had a connecting bus to Philadelphia and as soon as I got on the bus they told me I had to get off with my 3 year old daughter because their wasn't enough seats and I had to wait for the 11pm .. that was super infuriating due to the fact that I had so many bags and a child and not one staff member offered to help me get off the bus or get my things off the bus and I had to carry a sleeping child ... I should have been able to get onto my scheduled bus especially since hats the bus I paid for ..

At South Station, it wasn't clear which line was for greyhound, and I would've missed the bus if I didn't go up to one of the staff members and ask right before 3:30. When we got to NY for the layover, we were very late because of traffic and I asked one of the staff members where to go for the connection bus to PA. He was a little snappy and not very helpful, which was discouraging after a very long bus ride.

Transition time from the Boston bus to the Philadelphia bus was too long.

Much more than a mere vehicle taking you from Boston to Philadelphia, riding the bus will expose you to some of most stunning panoramas while enroute to your final bus stop.

Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from Boston to Philadelphia.
