Greyhound is the worst travel service ever. I normally catch the train but it was sold out. Catching the bus is normally my last resort right after walking. On my way from memphis to new orleans for my college spring break, greyhound over booked the bus and 3 old men...

Greyhound

Last night on 3/07/2011, I ordered a online ticket to travel to Oakland,ca from Sacramento. My bus was to leave at 8:15pm so I arrived at the bus station at 7:30pm. The ticket counter was dark and no one was working. A security gaurd told me that the rep had just went to lunch and would be gone for 30min. About 2min later I seen a lady behind the counter walking around and then sat down. I walked over to ask her about how to get a ticket when there is no one working and she responded with " I'm on my lunch" I asked if there is anyone that I could talk to and then she said "What part of I'm on my lunch that you don't understand" so I was so upset that I threw my food in the garbage can and walked out the door. When I came back 5min later, another person that was behind the counter said that I can go around to the shipping side and they will print out a ticket for me. They have horribel customer service in my opinion !!!

I bought a ticket online, of course, knowing that they are non-refundable. My trip was canceled due to a snow storm.

At the station, they told me that I could leave and use the tickets later without a problem. Now they are telling me that online tickets have to be...

Do you really believe all these excuses that Greyhound comes up with when a problem arises?These are just stories because they are juggling drivers and not enough busses. Just sell tickets and do what you can do to get the passengers on the road.

It is the same same story all over America in all business. The guys at the top are making obscene amounts of money while using us regular folks to do their dirty work. WAKE UP AMERICA!

:sigh :? :cry :x :(

Greyhound in Bronx, New York - Poor Customer Service

On February 26th I purchased a ticket for Mt. Laurel, NJ from NYC Port Authority. The ticket agent directed me to gate 83. Gate 83 had a sign posted for Boston and Connecticut, not Mt. Laurel. The other option given by the ticket agent was gate 82. No signs at gate 82 indicating any destinations! When I was finally able to speak to a greyhound rep, he advised me I missed the bus at gate 83 and that it had boarded on time! I had waited on that line and no announcement had been made concerning a boarding for NJ! He then directed me to gate 68. At gate 68 I was informed by the agent that the next bus to Mt. Laurel would be at 11:30, which came and went. No bus to Mt. Laurel. Finally at 12:30 I was able to board the bus for Mt. Laurel at the next gate over having been informed that I had been standing at the wrong gate for 30 minutes, following the directions of another incompetent Greyhound employee!

I did end up getting a refund from the corporate office after the posted this same review to the Better Business Bureau. So complaining does help I guess. But I still will never ride these unreliable bus routes again.

Greyhound does not EVEN HAVE a Customer Service Policy! (I asked for one with no response.) Their drivers can even leave EARLY without passengers, leaving you stranded!

Greyhound: a 0/5 score (or lower) for everything

I was traveling to a little town called Fayetteville, NC, for a job interview scheduled at the last minute. Since Megabus, my savior, only went up to Durham/Charlotte (in NC), I decided to transfer to the dreaded Greyhound at a cartain destination. 1. I booked my Megabus ticket to Charlotte and purchased a greyhound ticket from Charlotte to Fayetteville. Only, Greyhound booked it erroneously from Raleigh (!) to Fayettville. This was on a Friday so the guy at the NC station whom I called, asking for information, chided me for booking online and said I would have to talk to the customer reps on Monday (the day of my trip). 2. Since Megabus is more accommodating, I decided to change my Megabus reservation to Raleigh so that there would be no problems. That went off smoothly, except that Megabus goes up to Durham. So I had to look at dreaded Greyhound from Durham to Raleigh (a 35-min bus ride). 3. At Durham, waiting for the Greyhound, in the company of the usual "characters," the desk conveniently forgot to tell us, the passengers, that the bus was canceled. We found out when a guy started yelling and expressing his frustration. 4. Approaching the front desk, the guy got into a fight with me for choosing the online option to book tickets! This despite me explaining that I was not angry with him for Greyhound canceling the bus...I just wanted information -- on refund, my options to get to raleigh, and such. The guy did not know what "reimburse" or "refund" meant. I had to spell and then write it out and then refer to it as "get the money back on my card." 5. I took regional transit (wayyyy better) and reached the place ok. And the next day, it was traumatic again with Greyhound. 6. This is the most rotten service I've ever come across. The rides have never been pleasant and the company on the bus/at the station is God awful. Please do not rely on the Greyhound for anything. I HIGHLY recommend Megabus in the US. It's so much better. Everything-wise.

For all the people who are complaining about Greyhound's service, I know many people who take Greyhound on a regular basis and even had very many compliments about greyhound and their service. What you particular people have to understand is that many of you break...

"Anonymous - Things Happen", you're an obvious corporate shill! Long story short, On 06-SEP-10 @ 6P, I spent $66 on a one-way bus fare from Sacramento to Los Angeles, then ducked into their restroom to use their toilet stall for ONE minute.

Their 25-yr-old, room-temperture-IQ, skinhead, fat-boy security guard told me to get the *** out of there RIGHT NOW. I calmly presented my bus fare ticket to prove that I was indeed a PAYING passenger and not some street *** who wandered in off the street. Did that end the matter right there and then? NO!

He confiscated my ticket and said "follow me" to the windowless room (for a VERY thorough search, also photocopied my driver license and bus ticket to add to their "lowlife file"). I've ridden G'hound approx 200 times since 1980. I'm a clean-cut, clean-shaven 60-yr-old caucasion male who happened to be wearing a "Hawaiian/Aloha Shirt" on that particular day. Apparently, I violated G'hound's unwritten dress code against this colorful, festive style of casual wear.

I returned from my LA trip a few days later and emailed Greyhound Corporate website "contact us" and detailed my uncalled-for encounter with their *** *** fat-boy skinhead security employee. NO REPLY. No courtesy kiss-my-*** or go-to-***-***! YOU!!

(Things Happen-Anonymous),sir/madam shill are obviously sucking some Greyhound corporate *** in the corner office, aren't you?

I'm riding AMTRAK from now on. Nuff said!!!!

We chose to ride the Greyhound Bus thinking we would have a relaxing, stress free trip from FL to KY..... It was exactly the contrast to that!! Extremely dirty, old, not safe, bus stations were in the worst parts of towns, horrible customer service, cramped small...

Lucky you, not everyone can afford to rent a car. I don't know what the drivers make now but I do know Greyhound has been trying to bust the union and has forced wage cuts on the drivers.

I too had a surly driver and also a friendly one.

BFD.

It's just a bus ride. The passengers were nice though.

To the guy who commented saying grow up, you're a *** retard and know about as much as the monkeys who run greyhound. Tickets are for a SPECIFIC SCHEDULE and if you don't use it for that SPECIFIC SCHEDULE you're basically screwed whether its your fault or not. So maybe before you tell anyone to grow up you figure out what the *** you're talking about.
