Traumatic journey for us as a family. Unfriendly and unhelpful staff. We felt targeted as a group of Indian people with fear mongering and the driver imposing ridiculous demands asking us not to even drink water on a 9 hour journey with young children and elderly. The breaks stated never happened. Not enough time to get lunch so we were starving. Driver targeted us for even having a simple conversation. Another passenger had been eating in the bus and the driver did nothing. Instead he threatened to kick us off the bus. All in all an awful experience laced with racism. Will never do it again.
There was just a lack of communication. We stopped at many places without being advised why. Also, in Albany, everyone wanted to go use the bathroom and buy lunch because we were hungry, but we were told to stay and wait on the bus. I did not mind as much, but some others weren’t happy about ut
The WiFi is often unreliable. This time I couldn’t connect to it. The bus was very old. It was falling apart around the windows. At least there was no draft and the outlets were working. (On my way to Canada all outlets were dead. It was trailways, but the bus was a Greyhound bus).
Bus was dirty when we boarded, dirty tissues were thrown on seat and floor with drinks on floor. The charger on seat was faulty, the door for luggages also faulty and not closed properly till our luggages were wet due to water flipping in due to door issue. Wifi on bua also useless.
Excellente expérience de voyage, le chauffeur était très professionnel et sympathique, nous avons eu un service 5 étoiles, départ et arrivée selon l’horaire prévu, je vais définitivement utiliser leurs services à nouveau, c’est une façon simple et agréable de voyager.
Our bus was overbooked, we couldn't climb on it and we had to wait 2 hours for the next. Then our bus was out of service 10 minutes after the departure and no communication from the driver or the company...
Greyhound cancelled the bus and have not refunded the amount charged. Rebooked for next night. We had to take alternate means to reach NY. Still issue is unresolved. Very disappointed. Will write to better business bureau and media outlets.
