It was good trip

Desmond J.September 6, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

This was the most disappointing bus trip I have ever had. The bus from Chicago to Indy was overbooked and there was no seat for me. How does this happen? So I had to wait an hour for the next bus back to Chicago downtown which came 50min late and I almost missed the next bus to indy. I stood for hours at the very shifty bus stop without any seats and inhaling so much smoke from people smoking. I am utterly disappointed and never plan on taking Greyhound again and will discourage anyone wanting to take it from taking it. This was a horrific experience and ruined my whole trip.
