This was my first time riding with OurBus. Our bus driver-- Charlotte made my experience a great one. She was very professional, attentive, and overall a pleasure to be around. I'll be sure to book with OurBus for my next trip.

driver was dope

Kayode B.September 23, 2019 | 

Clean, neat, and comfortable

Michael F.September 10, 2019 | 

Was totally dissatisfied with the operator. His lack of knowledge of his designated stops and departure routes. If he was new then someone should have coached him with his routes. His stop and pickup layovers were unnecessarily long. I am unsure what else he was doing during the extended pickup delays.

Had a flat tire in Zionsville

Kara S.July 3, 2019 | 

The bus driver did not know how to operate the wheelchair access. Delayed the bus by almost a half hour.

Natalia L.July 2, 2019 | 

A terrible bus ride and company. My bus ride was 4,5 hours late and they were rude at the bus station. I arrived very late at night (1 am) to my destination and because no one was able to give me a ride at such a late hour I had to spend $60 on uber plus I also had to buy food for myself while I was waiting for the bus. I wrote an email to greyhound asking for a reimbursement of my ticket and my expenses. I have yet to see what their reply will be but I mught have to ask for your help in this matter. Best regards, Natalia Lange

I booked my ticket for the pickup on 95th street in Chicago, I got there 1 hour early and the bus never showed up, I had to travel down town Chicago to catch another bus

Linnea C.August 29, 2017 | 

Would not recommend. It was delayed for hours and I almost lost my seat.
