Avinash S.November 22, 2018 | Staff: 4 | 

Very poor bus. Poor seats.

William G.September 17, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 1 | 

Very unclean and unwelcoming environment. No chargers, seats were disgusting and caked with dirt (also some were very wet). Also, had to print a physical ticket which made me late because I thought my email receipt was sufficient.. (why wouldn't it be?)

Jacqueline Johnson P.August 5, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

Not on time and does not provide customer with details of how late the bus will be

Prathap P.March 17, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 2 | 

Driving staff were good.

Nidou S.October 22, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 1 | 

smell in bus was bad

Roman J.September 2, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The driver got lost 3 times on our way to Chicago from Indianapolis. She was nervous, screaming on passengers and we got delayed for almost 2 hours. Worst experience ever. I will not choose Greyhound as a transit company no more. This was my first time and I'm sure it was a last time too. Very dissapointed

HISASHI K.March 20, 2017 | Staff: 3 | 

I think good.

Eileen L.January 25, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Unprofessional, nobody was available to answer phone calls even during open hours.

Raiza Tamae Sarkis H.November 4, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

The bus of Oct 31 (12:00) was 50 minutes late

Maria Elena A.October 17, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

the bus left earlier which caused me to miss it. they did not refund me.

Samantha P.September 2, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

People were smoking on the bus and the driver pulled over and yelled at everyone saying he was going to leave us. The smoke smell was very strong and nasty we were a few minutes late. People on the bus were talking about just stabbing someone. It did not feel safe.

Corina R.August 4, 2016 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Very bad service 1:30 late

Sonia K.July 11, 2016 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus in Very Bad Conditions! Brocken sits, very old bus, terrible suspension
