Mina A.December 28, 2019 | 

They canceled the bus Schedule but didn’t tell us until we went to the station. Also, an attitude of the staff at the station was very bad.

Jeffrey B.November 1, 2019 | 

Overall Very comfortable ride

Pauline V.July 2, 2019 |

Esma K.May 25, 2019 | 

The bus was smelling pee!

Courtney B.May 25, 2019 | 

Enjoyed the wifi onboard. Feel greyhound could more accurately predict traffic.

Tomas V.February 19, 2019 | 

Bad WiFi service. The bus was late. Bad service in general.

Julia C.June 27, 2018 | 

Comfortable ride. No complaints

Gabriel B.May 31, 2018 | 

The bus was announced 30 min late but left 5 min ahead of schedule. I missed the bus.

Tara C.May 15, 2018 | 

Nothing made sense. Printed tickets enforced then people with phone tickets allowed on. Bus 1.5 hours late after we were told it would be 4.5 hours late because of driver scheduling. Oh and of course the entire vehicle smelt strongly of urine.

Leslie M.May 6, 2018 | 

They cancelled it last minute

Amma G.February 27, 2018 | 

The bus driver for the route was extremely rude to passengers. He almost knocked over an elderly lady and man. The heat on the bus was extremely high leaving us to be very uncomfortable the entire ride.

Maria S.August 8, 2017 | 

Too many stops and there were no seatbelts

Mustafa M.January 29, 2017 | 

Bus broke. Had to uber to LA

Giulia C.October 28, 2016 | 

Today was really late
