Great trip! Would definitely do again
Very good service for this money. I will recommend Greyhound to everyone.
Great service, minor hiccups but will use again!
Yesterday's weather was not good, rather than bus is on time
Too bad internet service. Wifi didn’t work anytime throughout the journey.
They need to implement a better tracking system of their busses so that people waiting for a late bus can be informed. Also, a packed bus definitely needs air conditioning. Two out of three busses had mechanical problems with their air conditioners.
Scheduled bus cancelled without any reason and we were informed like 4~6hrs "delay" while cuing in line for 30mins. No one is helpful and we have to take our own risk to exchange the ticket.
Pathetic service, broken seats, wifi doesn't work. Discourteous staff. Never will use their service again.
Was good. Bus was broken, so delayed 2 hours. Staffs was nice though.
Both buses on the Chicago leg of the journey needed to be refreshed,the smell of stale urine was very evident, only the bus from Chicago to Cleveland had wifi available, none was available in the last 2 buses
The drivers and other staff are great professionals. They are always polite and some of them have great sense of humor.
The bus was 8 hours late. There was no compensation whatsoever nor was there any hotel accommodation considering the amount of delay went overnight.
No complaints. All okay. A grade.
I missed the bus from Detroit to Toronto because of the delay of the first bus
I bought a ticket that went from Southside Chicago to downtown with a 2 hour layover; had I known I would have bought just a ticket from downtown. Driver was rude and abrasive for the first leg to Detroit. Phone support agents to switch my ticket were useless. WiFi didn't work on second bus. First bus was 20 min late. Overall not a great experience with my first greyhound.
I was supposed to be picked up at union station in Chicago, which is a huge building, and the instructions for where I was supposed to catc the bus were nonexistent so it took me 30 minutes to find where to go. My ticket said that I had zero bus changes and I ended up switching buses once. the stop I was intending to get off at was unavailable due to construction so I had to get off at a later stop that put me back an hour off my schedule. I know it isn’t greyhounds fault, but both people I sat next to took up part of my seat and one passenger was incredibly rude and disruptive, spraying perfume frequently, resting her whole body on me, fighting with a fellow passenger and acting very belligerent, and using racial slurs and inappropriate language on the bus at 6 am. My experience was not pleasant from start to finish for a variety of reasons.
I had a horrible day traveling with greyhound with my 3 kids! Never again
Internal cleanliness is a major deficiency noticed. The trip from Chicago to Detroit was unpleasant as the rear part reeked of urine! Ensuring cleanliness of the bus before each trip starts is the minimum comfort that a passenger expects. Thanks
Buses are hood, staff are good too. There was more than 1 hr delay at Detroit as they mentioned that the bus broke down. Air conditioning and electrical ports work well in the bus. Wifi inside bus is too slow to use. Overall good experience.
Overall good experience. Staff were very helpful, bus departed on time and reached destination on time. Power outlets were working on the bus from Chicago to Detroit, but weren't working from Detroit to Toronto. Wifi was too slow. Seats weren't very comfortable. Bus was fully booked throughout the journey, so it was a lil crowded
Very bad customer service, lack of any needed information during travel. Bus in Chicago was late almost 1 hour, therefore we had been late for transfer in Detroit - transfer bus just didn’t wait for passengers from Chicago. All of passengers had been waiting whole night for next bus to Toronto (awaiting from 1am until 7am). No “sorry” from Greyhound, they didn’t care about our situation, we had been on our own, tired and hungry (no vouchers for food provided, or even water, nothing). Totally not recommended.
First of 2 buses was cold and dark. Driver did everything she could but the heating system was not delivery much heat and the reading lights did not function.Bus for second leg of journey was functioning properly.
bad service,1 hour late, rude staff, old noisy bus. then after that , bus driver missed the route as he was new and wasted 45 min more
It's the worst bus I've ever had in my life. The Grayhound company and its staff are unprofessional, their buses are very dirty and old as well as their stations, but the worst of all is their lack of professionalism and great unpunctuality that characterizes them. Thanks to the terrible service of this company I lost a flight and spent one of the worst nights of my life. I do not recommend any person to use this service under any circumstance, the Grayhound company has no interest for its clients nor for giving a quality service.
This bus arrived with an hour late.
I changed my ticket to next day. The bus was sheduled to leave at 10:45 PM and they said around 11:15 that the bus will be late. But they didn't know how late. No other bus, no option, nothing. When I asked them to put me on the next bus they were rude. The bus eventually has left around 6 AM. We have arrived to Clevland in the afternoon, and the lay over wasn't 2 hours as planed but 8! They haven't offered any compensation, not even a meal, nothing. (At this point I didn't have any USD, because I should have been in Canada by than.) My 17 hours long trip turned out to be 35, I missed my first day at my job! Greyhound can only get away with that because the low middle class is using it, and there is no real competition on that level.
Chicago, IL Busses were always late. Some staff members were rude. Not happy with the unscheduled bus switches. Disappointed with this service.
