Improvement on timings is required

15mins late to pick up and 30mins late to Chicago

I think that the absence of a shelter or building for passengers who waits for the bus is a proof of neglection. West-Lafayette bus stop has to be equipped or rearranged in cooperation with City Bus station to bring better service.

The bus came half an hour late and it only had room for four people out of the forty of us so I didn’t get to go to Chicago.

Please kindly make sure that the seats are enough. We sat only half of the chair because the other passengers used 1.5 of the chairs.

The bus never arrived. After a 2 hour delay, it was supposed to arrive at 3 instead of 12:20. As we watched on the bus tracker, it drove past the city we were in. So I called Greyhound, was transferred to 3 different people who told me no vital information. I ended up driving.

Dirty bus and someone smoked inside.

Sarah Z.May 11, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Bus was over four hours late, maybe more. I waited in the “station” (bench along the side of the road) for three hours until I left. I am now severely sunburnt, and getting a new ticket was a nightmare. TERRIBLE service.

Bus didn’t arrive so I had to cancel my trip

I booked a trip from Lafayette, IN to Chicago, IL the day before I wanted to leave. The bus very close to on time. I will choose this trip again.

Richard K.September 24, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

After waiting 4 hours the bus still hadn't turned upand it was only due to the kindness of the bus driver of a later scheduled bus, who let us on his bus that we managed to reach Chicago at all.

Junyi H.July 30, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

the bus was late and the tickets were oversold, resulting in us not being able to get on
