The bus old, dirty, smelly, almost no seats, the driver not friendly at all, grumpy

Nuruljannah Z.September 29, 2019 | 

The bus left me and my husband at the rest stop. We were supposed to report back at 3.50am. We had to use the bathroom and rushed back 30 seconds after 3.50am just to see the bus driving off. We were shocked and stranded; we're visitors and had no easy means to go about in the country. Our bags were also checked in the bus. It was bizzare, we were seated right in the first seats behind the driver and had personal belongings left on the seats. NO ONE alerted the driver that we were missing and the driver could have just made a quick check to see everyone is up the bus, or at least wait till the minute is over before departing. We managed to board another bus going to LA (driver was extremely nice and understanding) but there was only 1 seat available hence my husband had to enduring semi-standing for 3 hours bus ride. We reached the station and managed to retrieve our checked in bags but our personal belongings which was left on the seats were lost. Horrible experience and lousy service considering we paid quite a sum ($51 each).

The bathroom smelled terrible. It was understandable that traffic caused the trip to take longer than expected but sitting in the smell for that long was hardly bearable.

Rafael G.June 17, 2019 | 

Greyhound bus is one of the best company in the US.

Lorraine L.December 31, 2017 | 

Bus was on time and driver was very courteous

Christopher P.November 28, 2017 | 

Delay because of misbehaving passenger. Driver handled the situation excellently. There were also mechanical issues, and he managed this well. Some delay occurred because of these factors, but no more than 1 hour.

James G.September 5, 2017 | 

I arrived at 6:50 am and the bus rider did not let me on. The bus was supposed to leave at 7:05 am. I had to purchase a higher ticket and pay an extra 20 plus which I was very unhappy about. The 9 bus had two young ladies fighting and the man next to me kept pushing his arm on me into my own space .

Mehar L.August 12, 2017 | 

greyhound was 7 hours delayed and no one told me so I took the Bolt bus instead.

Jonathan W.August 9, 2017 |

Baskar P.June 22, 2017 | 

The ride from san jose to LA was not a great ride. seats were not at all good. It is a bad ride for use considering it a mid night ride which rider will hope to get some sleep. But with the bad seats it was as bad as it sounds.

Mandana M.March 23, 2017 | 

The bus was really late to arrive at the pick up location. But the bus was very nice, our driver wa great and we arrived on time.

Alireza V.February 19, 2017 |
