My experience with u was terrible they charged me more just because I put my luggage under the bus where al the luggage goes 😔

Catherine M.November 28, 2019 | 

Very courteous staff. Comfortable ride. Bus driver was friendly and informative. The arrival in LA was late due to Thanksgiving traffic. The driver handled the delays efficiently and safely.

Isabela C.November 21, 2019 |

Kevin M.October 10, 2019 | 

Great service

Louise O.September 19, 2019 | 

Staff were very unhelpful to us when our bags would not fit in our overhead space, even though they had done on a previous bus that we took. We were told that we would have to pay $20 to put them underneath, no one was willing to listen to us.

Elaine C.September 2, 2019 | 

Good service for the price

Raid M.August 7, 2019 | 

All good. Thanks for the services

Lourdes B.April 30, 2019 | 

Bus doesn't have an aircon or could be in a low mode.

Brianna H.March 12, 2019 | 

The bus that I was on did not have working outlets which is really important for travelers. I was really unsatisfied by this.

Daisuke M.March 5, 2019 | 

It was so comfortable!

Suwapat T.December 13, 2018 |

Nicholas F.November 8, 2018 | 

Unbeatable for the price

Ivelisse A.October 30, 2018 | 

Great service. Good drivers. Good value for money. Wifi on board (it works)! Plenty of options for schedules. You'll often see tourists, students and families traveling from LA to San Diego. Very satisfied.

Casmir R.August 12, 2018 | 

Someone spilt a drink on the bus and we were off time by 30-40mins but traffic probs

David B.June 18, 2018 | 

Having the bus boarded by ICE agents --shades of Nazi Germany-- means next time I'll take the train.

James D.June 17, 2018 | 

I don't ask any more of a bus than to be on time and it wasn't

Julia R.June 1, 2018 | 

I expected a little bit more comfort!

Helena S.May 18, 2018 | 

Bus smelled like piss

Anne-laure P.April 28, 2018 | 

Seats were dirty- bus was smelling bad- Bus was late but staff told us and apologized for the inconvenience. Appreciated it.

Tereza M.March 10, 2018 | 

Everything okay tho Wi-Fi is suck

Anthony C.March 3, 2018 | 

Bus was not able to complete the journey due to breakdowns. The connecting bus had left hrs earlier.

Emma C.February 7, 2018 | 

It was Ok

Makamas J.October 8, 2017 | 

It is the easiest transportation and very comfortable during on the way.

Jason P.September 18, 2017 | 

We didn't manage to get on quick enough and thus once we got on most people were sat by themselves and thus as we were travelling with children we were forced to take the remaining 2 seats together - which just happened to include materially broken seats (note at least 25% of the seats on the bus were broken). There was also no air conditioning so it was very uncomfortable. We ended up getting off early and using alternative transport. Entirely dissatisfied!!

Maria S.August 11, 2017 | 

The seats were ripped, the bathroom smelled.

Kennedy S.August 5, 2017 | 

Pls keep to departure time!

Kevin V.August 1, 2017 | 

Aircon was to cold

Mitchell T.July 21, 2017 | 

The bus airconditioner had dirty water leaking out on myself and other passengers throughout the whole trip. Will never travel with greyhound again.

Mona Lisa H.July 23, 2017 | 

I've ridden greyhound in Texas but this was way better. On time!!!
