Sheer carelessness.

Jose De Jesus P.July 14, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

5 hour delay, no direct buses from detroit to chicago. Nasty greyhound station that looks like a homeless shelter

Krishna S.May 2, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 3 | 

Overall a good experience. Seats were not recliner but were good. Not recommended for long journeys.

Prasanna Kumar K.April 29, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Fuck the greyhound

Ahmad A.March 31, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus was uncomfortable, smelly, loud. No room whatsoever, seats were awful. Staff was ok, bus on time. Still, terrible.

Allexis W.March 19, 2018 | Staff: 1 | 

STAFF WAS SOME OF THE RUDEST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. GREYHOUND SAID MY TICKETS WERE UNAVAILABLE AND COULDN'T BE FOUND. I WAS TOLD "IF YOU HAVE A PRINTER IN YOUR POCKET TO PRINT THEM OUT GO AHEAD" OTHERWISE YOU'RE NOT GETTING ON THE BUS. WE WE'RE NOT ALLOWED TO BOARD THE BUS AND INSTEAD HAD TO GO ALL THE WAY BACK HOME AND DRIVE TO CHICAGO. NOW I AM OUT THE $200 I SPENT ON 3 BUS TICKETS, FOR THEM TO TELL ME THEY COULD NOT HELP ME AT ALL.

Geoffrey V.January 4, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

3 hours delays No informations Bus dirty

Earnestine H.August 5, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 5 | 

The bus was one hour late.

Yahya B.June 6, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Timing was not good, and the driver had stops that made the entire trip 1 hour longer.

Jose G.June 13, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

No I'm satisfied thanks !!!

Catalina S.May 20, 2017 | 

Yhe bus was one hour late

Quindara L.April 17, 2017 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 1 | 

I'll never travel this way again to be disrespected and talked down to over a simple question.

Colleen C.January 31, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus was very clean, appreciate the Drivers welcoming spirit. Smooth ride.

Dneiqua S.January 20, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

I was treated poorly the staff was rude and not concerned about my safety this was the worst trip ever thanks to Detroit greyhound not to mention head of security told me the best thing for me to do is let everything go

Amber B.December 28, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

My bus was 2 hours late, absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable. I will never book with Greyhound again.

Cameron G.December 29, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

No assigned seating so good luck sitting with anyone you travel with. And most people on my bus were in prison recently. Safe to say I am not going to travel with greyhound ever again.

Ryan D.December 18, 2016 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 1 | 

Extremely rude staff at the Detroit station. Unless I get a free ride coupon in the mail; Megabus/Amtrak til I'm dead and gone.

Renu A.October 22, 2016 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

The driver was very friendly
