Fatoumata S.March 4, 2018 | 

The bus was late and inside Stinks

Betty G.December 1, 2017 | 

The communication between staff and customers was unprofessional, not in a timely manner, and unclear. The bus I took was an hour and a half late but this wasn’t communicated to me.

James C.October 8, 2017 | 

Bus was late. After boarding the bus and getting on the road the bus kept cutting off. We had to go back to the station. Luckily the staff there already had a bus ready. We were late arriving.

Miguel T.September 19, 2017 | 

When I arrived at the station in Los Angeles, to take the bus to Bakersfield, I was informed it had come and gone. A full hour and a half before the stated departure time. Not only that, but since I ended up on a later bus, I missed my connection, and had to pay a completely new ticket to my final destination in Fresno, even though it was on the same exact bus. I would not recommend Tufesa. The poor service, lack of communication, and general disinterest in seeing my situation left a very poor taste in my mouth.

Lorena C.September 10, 2017 | 

Excelente, very good trip, I'm satisfied

Yesenia A.August 4, 2017 | 

My bus was 3 hours late

Shirley D.July 9, 2017 | 

The bus was overbooked. An 8-year-old had to sit on her mom's lap with me on the other seat. With her teddies, it was very crowded.

Theresa R.July 7, 2017 | 

North Hollywood needs more worker's so we don't have to sit in sun

Jeovany A.July 1, 2017 | 

I tried to print ticket out and it wouldn't let me. Greyhound said due to third party it had difficulty therefore I missed my bus

Sokorn T.June 23, 2017 | 

Bus was three hours late.
