Amish P.February 24, 2020 | 

The quality of the bus can be improved. Thanks

Philadelphia - no one is sure if they in the right waiting line. Use of PA system needed to know which bus is leaving when.

Dean L.December 2, 2019 | 

My bad review mostly comes from the traffic that was experienced that day but the Wi-Fi on board needs serious improvement. My computer would connect but the connection was awful and I ended up losing work in the process.

Simon H.November 27, 2019 |

Filipa M.November 27, 2019 | 

Overall everything went fine but i didnt have internet most of the time..

Melina Lucia A.November 12, 2019 | 

I was super confused at the bus station in Philly because i couldn't found my bus at the screen. Unfortunately, the staff wasn't really helpful by supporting me with that. Then, there was an announcement, that the bus will be 45 min late, but after 45 minutes, the bus didn't arrive and nobody knew when it will come.

Arlette A.November 11, 2019 | 

Great service

Wonjeong C.November 8, 2019 | 

Not recommended

Caitlin J.November 4, 2019 | 

Customer safety was ignored by the driver. There was unsupervised luggage, customers became concerned with their safety but the staff downplayed our concerns. I am currently in contact with PP's customer service and safety department

Dean L.October 29, 2019 | 

Although the bus was a bit crowded there was plenty of room for everyone's stuff and I felt comfortable in my seat. The driver was professional and we got to the destination early. Overall, I am very happy.

Bruce W.October 14, 2019 | 

It was great except the part where the seats doesn’t recline

Astrid V.October 12, 2019 | 

2 hours delay with no explanations

Anthony F.September 28, 2019 | 

Bus was late and updates of its estimated arrival infrequent

Patricia P.September 16, 2019 | 

Bus viejo , mala mantención de quedó en pana , aire acondicionado pésimo

Tom G.September 5, 2019 | 

Absolutely useless! Multiple buses delayed with no staff around to give any assistance to passengers. Our bus stopped on the middle of the highway to eject a passenger which took an hour. It later stopped again and staff refused to leave because they said they could smell cannabis on the bus and we were told we would have to wait for a drugs dog to search the bus. Police never came. 3 hour trip took 5 hours due to poor judgement and bad organisation. Don't use Greyhound buses!

Khaliunaa G.September 1, 2019 | 

Asked me to transfer in Baltimore but it wasnt really. I almost lost my bus

Will T.August 20, 2019 | 

Late. Not on time. Warm bus. Unhappy bus travellers. Thanks

Oumar D.August 19, 2019 | 

It was my first time to send thierno bus comptant and I like it. The drive was kind smith passengers. The 30 minute délayé was due to roadster workshops and nobody complained.

Khaliunaa G.August 17, 2019 | 

We were late because of the traffic

Anastasiya V.August 16, 2019 | 

A bit slow WiFi but in general all good, friendly driver, free water, A/C, clean bus, departure and arrival on time

Gavriel T.August 5, 2019 | 

the WIFI didnt work

Isaiah E.July 22, 2019 | 

My bus was at 3:15 I had to get on the 4:30 one cause my 3:15 bus was full, then the 4:30 bus didn’t have no AC

Lianne B.July 18, 2019 | 

Very disappointed by the lack of commutation and level of service by the staff. No one knew what was going on in Baltimore, the bus driver was told she wasn’t driving us on to Washington yet there was no replacement driver. We waited only to be told we would go on the next bus to dc an hour and a half later, then when we waited for that bus we were told to get on another bus. Arrived 2 and a half hours later than scheduled with barely an explanation.

Masoud A.July 15, 2019 | 

Very impressed keep up the good work.

Daniel C.July 4, 2019 | 

Will take it again, and pass along how good it is

Elsa Ingeborg S.June 22, 2019 | 

Everything was all good, except one thing. The bus smelled like pee. Not just a little, but a lot. All trip long. So much as tho it was hard to breath. But, the driver was a funny and nice man. :) However, clean those bathrooms.

Towana M.June 21, 2019 | 

I will definitely look into using another bus company when I travel.
