It is my opinion that more information need to be related to the traveling public with a kind extension to the lame and other wise impaired. Departures should be clearly announced a headcount should be taken, also when last minute customers are accepted the dispatcher should be notified of said person and look to ensure that they board also the desk clerks could be a little more engaged and not so animated because their jobs is directly related to the traveling public. This is the first World and your service should match your status.

Love the company and its service. The Newark-DC Route is great way to travel to DC from anywhere in NYC or NJ that’s on or close to PATH train.

Bus conked out in the middle of freeway. It took 3 hrs for the replacement bus to arrive. Will never ride this bus line again. Worse!!!

Nicole C.October 13, 2019 | 

There was a bus available at 5:30 however it boarded people with later tickets and not us. When we finally got on to the bus there was no wifi and no power outlets

Margarita T.October 6, 2019 | 

Bus was perhaps of the traffic

Harjinder J.October 4, 2019 | 

Not bad for price

Fabio P.September 25, 2019 | 

Bus was clean. I wish I would’ve been told there were stops before reaching my destination

Annery G.September 21, 2019 | 

Very uncomfortable.

Anna F.September 12, 2019 | 

First of all we were late due to an accident we made it just in time a few minutes of the bus leaving. The bus driver had the nerve to give us a sermon about what time we needed to be there, and if she did not have to go the office we would miss our ride. Obviously, we can read and accept our fate if the bus left. I would give her a zero for customer service. Secondly, my elderly mother was on tue bus, they had a mechanical problem and got stuck in Baltimore. She was supposed to arrive Union Station at 6:10pm. They were on and off several buses to he taken to Silver Spring Maryland! My family had to drive from Union Station where they were waiting for her now head to Silver Spring. She arrived there at 10:00pm. There were other passengers elders crying due to this horrible circumstance. I do hope there will be better back up and better communication rather than a serious attitude from a grumpy driver herself. Truly disappointed the least to say.

Good bus, clean bathroom. I just wish the seats would recline.

Ebunoluwa S.August 27, 2019 | 

I never got to the bus station despiite spending almost an hour on my lyft that charged me $50 cos we couldnt locate your loading terminal. I called customer service twice, the couldnt help. I finally had to stop at the greyhound newark penn station bought another ticket. Its a waste of time and fund. pls get the real address and stop this unhelpful direction on the receipt

Good experince

Philomene B.August 26, 2019 | 

Very rude and unprofessional staff! This is ridiculous I will not subject myself to such nonsense again. Not only did the bus come late (about 30mins) but it could only take a handful of us. The rest of us were left to imagining when will the “next bus” arrive. The departure was for 1:10 and by 2:30 we were still waiting on a bus to pick us up without any apologies or updates from the staff. I had to board BoltBus for an additional $25 because I had a flight to catch after giving $34 to Greyhound.

Brooke P.August 24, 2019 | 

Extremely late. Lack of updates to the customers at Newark. We were all just waiting on the sidewalk in Newark and had no idea when we should expect a bus to come

Shirin Y.August 19, 2019 | 

Bus broke down, I had to order a $118 uber home because I needed to be home by 10PM and there was no way I’d be back that soon otherwise.

Faiza S.August 16, 2019 |
