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.
