Scott the driver was great. They was a delay because he had to get a switch the bus before he started. Then the accident on I 75 did not help. The interstate was closed and for 2 hrs we only went 7 miles. But at least there was a bathroom and he offered bottles of water if we wanted. So happy I took the bus sitting in that traffic all alone would have been miserable. Scott was entertaining and a great driver.

Beautiful, comfortable seats. But no WIFI available. I asked the driver what the connection network was...but that did not appear in the choices...the WIFI signal was not being sent. Also, I expected to be able to plug my phone in to charge it, but that also was not available.

There is no Air Conditioner working in the bus that I took from Gainesville, FL to Tallahassee, FL and there is no light in the Washroom as well. That was the only problem I faced throughout the journey.

Disgusting bus, I feel disrespected as a human being for the conditions of this bus. VERY unsanitary and absolutely gross. I'm sure they could clean these busses with the money they make from each ticket. NEVER using greyhound buses ever again

We got to our destination earlier than expected, which was good. However, there was very limited leg room and someone on the bus smelled like pee, so that made it hard to have anything close to a relaxing bus ride.

Bus was crowded and we had to wait until lake city to sit together my husband and I. Then there were people laying on the seats with Their feet hanging over the sides and would get up until we got to atl. I didn’t think you could have a seat for your bed unless u paid twice.
