Это ужасно. В бронировании указан НЕВЕРНЫЙ адрес отправления, приезжаешь туда, а там пусто, бежишь скорее на другую станцию, после чего узнаешь, что автобус задерживается на ТРИ часа!!! В автобусе было ужасно холодно, дуло отовсюду. Больше никогда не воспользуюсь услугами данной компании.

Angie C.September 27, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 3 | 

we encountered quite a few issues on our trip. We were supposed to be on a 9:30am bus, it didnt come until 10:15am, then we had to get off in Oakland. We then didnt get back on until 11:35am. Some of the staff in Oakland we so helpful and kind, whilst one of the security guards were extremely rude. I have traveled with greyhound many times and have not had any issues, but this trip made for an extremely long day, arriving 5 hours later into LA than scheduled

Hsiang-yang C.June 30, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 2 | 

The attitude of the staff and the cleanness of the bus can be improved.

Ahmed A.June 28, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Everything was good except the bus condition and the very loud sound of the engine.

Millie I.June 5, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

Brilliant staff at San Francisco, driver from San Fernando however not so great. He never said where the bus was going, just expected everyone to know. I followed the people in front and thankfully it was the correct bus I got on

Diotime G.May 20, 2018 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 1 | 

First off, the staff was very rude to us, and the agent in charge of the lugage wanted to make us pay 15$ more for the carry-on lugage, even though it was included. We left 45 minutes late, and had to wait for a second driver for 3 hours! In addition, the bus was not clean, it smelled terribly bad, and the Wifi never worked! I absolutely don't recommand travelling with Greyhound and will never do it rever again.

Rogelio L.May 14, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 5 | 

Trip was fine. But we did not leave on time. Late by one hour.

Yakov V.March 12, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Very nice trip! The station and the bus very clean, on time,even the weather was not good. Great trip, great driver, thank you!!!

Irmantas B.March 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 1 | 

The driver San Francisco - Los Angeles, March 2, 2018, 12.55 was very unprofessional. She didn't let me to the bus because I just asked her about a possible to smoke before the trip started. I am really sorry for her, because I'll never ever use the Greyhound lines in my life.

Everything was very good

Naomi G.December 24, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 3 | 

Screaming baby, too much perfume on 1 pass and pee on another, plus 1st driver hit most bumps & potholes along the way

Melissa M.December 8, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus was 2 hours early, a pain with connections and losing sleep time over night

Mayur S.November 13, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 3 | 

Staff was rude nd bus was delayed by 2 hours

Ying Z.October 12, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 5 | 

Bus was late by 1 hour and 40 minutes. And it was filthy inside. When later buses arrived before our delayed bus, the staff refused to place us on the later buses that ended up arriving before our delayed bus - and there were loads of empty seats in those buses. Very disappointed with the way it was handled. There was no offering of travel voucher due to the delay and inconvenience, and there was not even any apology.

Orgil E.September 29, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 5 | 

Was fine but bus was little bit dirty

Vincentia Wing Sze Y.August 7, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The worst experience ever. Bus was cancelled at the last minute. Staff is rude and unhelpful.

Julie P.July 28, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 3 | 

Greyhound said there would be internet on the bus so I booked a trip during the work day thinking I'd be able to work. However, the internet did not work the entire time on the bus which was very frustrating. Wish I could have known about this since I lost a lot of time from work. I'm pretty disappointed and think Greyhound could definitely be better here.

Gaya O.July 24, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

Bus was 3 hours late and left after 2am instead of 11pm

Convenient service and we arrived early. Great job. The only problem was that the outlets on the bus did not work.
