Honestly I just feel that grey hound is overrated. 1. The Screen on the upper deck kept on flickering all the time which was irritating my eyes. Asked them to switch it off, they said it was faulty. 2. There was no entertainment on the bus like they claimed to have on the advertisement. 3. Some of the charger cables didn’t work. 4. Chairs were not that comfortable

Rude drivers, completely unhelpful; barked instructions and issued unclear messages, filthy deck - floor full of litter and stained seats and pungent smell.
