Pack snacks — food can’t be bought on the bus, so you’ll have to wait for stops to purchase it. Bring a lot of water with you.

How can I get on a Greyhound bus without ID?
I spoke with Greyhound Customer service on June 21, 2019. A person without an official ID has one option, which is to pre-pay a ticket online. It has an $18.00 fee on top of the ticket price and is only available in the United States, but it may be your only option.

Because they’re dirt cheap since a destination that would take 3 hours from a to b in a car takes 5 or 6 hours due to detours and layovers. The plain fact is that more poor people take the bus because it is cheap.
