What is the length of a Greyhound bus?
Coach Buses have average lengths of 39’4” (12 m), widths of 8’4” (2.55 m), heights of 12’6” (3.81 m), and have a capacity of 44-49 (+1) seats. Coach buses are buses designed specifically for longer-distances with greater accommodations for passenger comfort during these extended periods of travel.
Why are Greyhound buses so bad?
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.
Are Greyhound busses safe?
You are pretty safe inside the Greyhound bus station, but outside is a whole different ballgame. I personally know several people who have been robbed right outside of Greyhound bus stations. Stay inside and don’t risk encountering an incident that could end your trip (or worse).
Can you bring alcohol on Greyhound?
Food, drinks and accessories: Alcohol is not permitted at all – on board or in under the bus baggage. Snacks, drinks and plastic cutlery are ok on-board. Any glass containers or metal cutlery must be in under the bus baggage. Sharp objects: Most aren’t allowed on board but can be packed in under the bus baggage.
Do Greyhound buses stop for food?
We don’t sell food or drink on our buses, so it’s a good idea to stock up on food and drinks before boarding (not alcoholic drinks though, they’re not allowed). But if you forget, the bus does stop frequently (check your itinerary to see how often), and some stops will have places to buy food.
Can you ride Greyhound without ID?
Do I need an ID to board my bus? Yes, Greyhound requires you to present an ID to an agent to board the bus. Make sure you have identification issued by a government agency that meets the carrier’s requirements.
Does Greyhound bus check your bags?
They check your bags, but only carry on. If they have reason to think drugs or something suspicious is being transported then they bring in dogs and actual police.
Is there WIFI on Greyhound?
Wi-Fi is free on all Greyhound buses, and for all passengers.
Are Greyhound buses always late?
Greyhound buses are notorious for being late. So expect to board your bus 30 minutes to an hour after the scheduled boarding time. And that’s on a good day. Depending on why your bus is delayed, you may have to wait anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.
Is there assigned seating on Greyhound?
We don’t assign seat numbers, so you can take any available seat on the bus. However, we do reserve the front row seats for customers with disabilities, the elderly and unaccompanied children.

Can you talk on the phone on Greyhound?
“ Do not allow your cell phones to ring throughout this bus please as they do and they will disturb Greyhound’s PAYING customers. We are not going to sit up here for four-and-a-half hours listening to cell phones ringing throughout this bus,” he is heard saying in the video.
Does a backpack count as a carry on Greyhound?
Standard-sized carry -on suitcases fit perfectly in the overhead bins on Greyhound buses. I’ve also found that average-sized backpacks work great as carry -on luggage and they can usually fit in the overhead bins and under the seats as well. Basically, any bag the size of a large suitcase is fine.
Can you bring a blanket on a Greyhound bus?
Carry your blanket and your pillow in your arm— wrapped tightly so that they look small. Small does sell in Greyhound buses. However, you can bring a reasonably sized suitcase for the cargo area, plus pay extra if you have more than one suitcase.
