I booked a ticket and got the email that I should have got up on 5951 Hollywood Blvd. but when l arrived there by Uber I Couldn't find the location. I had to call your service department, a lady told me another location about 10miles from Hollywood Blvd. when I headed to there. The eight o'clock bus had left. I had to change to the10o'clock bus. I don't know if the Hollywood bus stop was cancelled? why was it still in the ticket list?

For some reason I had a connected bus from union station to another station 5 minutes then another one to my destination. My first connection bus was over an hour late so I missed my final destination bus. Then They can’t even get me another bus until 2 hours later Andy i wouldn’t get to SF till almost 10am. So I found a Megabus which left sooner and got me there with after travel time.First and last time I ever use grey hound

Very dissapointed my trip was schedule fron 4:15 pm to 12:45 am and it was from 6 pm to 5:30 am

Overall, very poor service. The driver wasn’t even apologetic about showing up over an hour late. And the stop we made didn’t even have great food options. There was a stop a few miles back with better food options so I’m not sure why we stopped where we did.

One hour delay on departure time. Bus broke down 1.5 hours away from San Jose. Backup was not coming anytime soon. Took $140 uber to San Jose.
