I was carrying two baggage and as per my ticket I was allowed two baggage. But still bus staff has charged extra charges for one baggage.

I had to wait 9hrs until the next bus to Chicago came .

Aline K.August 13, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Booked a tick yesterday and was never told that bus was cancered for that evening until the next day. At station the staff seems to act so unprofessional. What’s the point of providing my email and phone if you are not going to used it to let me know ahead of time that the bus will not come. I travel 30 minutes to get to the train station only to be told that the bus was not coming. I had to miss work and plus I had to pay for a hotel so that I won’t spend a night in train station. Greyhound can do better than that. I am regular greyhound customer but I believe this will be the last time used it.

Bus was devalued close to three hours. Please improve your logistics, I waited as long as my actually bus ride. Indianapolis to Chicago is one of the quicker bus trips, there could have been a new bus ride added to accomadate us. It sucker we have to wait so long for the original bus comes just so Greyhound doesn’t have to higher another bus driver. Several buses were at the station empty. Unacceptable, the need to do lean six sigma and find better solutions.
