It was ok

Kushang P.August 19, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

Very pathetic bus service I have ever seen...bus was late by 3 hrs. My connecting bus also went without any notification. If your bus is late then it's connecting bus should wait till it arrived.

Sharron P.July 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

Not that bad. Bus was pretty comfortable - freezing - but comfortable! Also not that crowded so it was very lucky to have a seat to myself. Loved having outlets.

Emilie Liselotte K.June 28, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

I had the most fantastic driver James that drove us to Detroit! 10/5 stars to that guy

Natalie S.July 10, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

They overbooked the bus. It turned into an 11 hr trip from Chicago to Detroit.

Jamie H.July 10, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

I was very disappointed in taking this bus system. It was my first time taking this I will never take the greyhound again. Mega Bus is the way to go. It took me and my friend 9 hours to get home on Sunday July 9,2017 from Chicago to Detroit. They overbooked the seats and we had to wait in Toledo for 2 hours for a different bus because they didn't have room. I plan on calling customer service today to complain because it was the worse experience.

Need new fleet similar to Megsbus

Dalila B.May 10, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Le voyage s'est bien passé jusqu'à ce que la conductrice se soit trompée, mais cela n'est pas très grave, sauf que nous avons été arrétés par la Douane canadienne qui a été très très désagréable. De ce fait je n'ai pu me rendre à mon lieu de destination car plus de correspondance. et ce soir j'ai dû prendre une chambre d'hôtel ce qui n'était pas prévu dans mon budget. Cordialement.

Please be on time and provide correct information.

Barely heard the bus. Dry staff. Barely helpful. Ended up missing bus by 10 minutes.

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