How does riding a Greyhound bus work?
Greyhound uses three classes of fares. Economy and Economy Extra passengers pay nonrefundable fares, are charged $20 to make ticket changes, and get one free carry-on and one free checked bag. Economy Extra passengers also get priority boarding and earn more rewards points than Economy passengers.
Why is Greyhound bus 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.
How do you 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.
What do I need to bring on a Greyhound bus?
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. If you’re traveling overnight, bring a blanket — the bus can get very chilly! Pack your phone charger in your carry -on bag, not your checked luggage; the buses have outlets.
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.
Is it safe to sleep on a Greyhound bus?
And while sleeping on the Greyhound bus might not be the most comfortable zzz’s you’ll ever get, it is possible. Especially if you bring along the proper sleep aides.

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.
Do Greyhound busses have bathrooms?
Yes, there are bathrooms on all Greyhound buses. They are located at the rear of the bus. They are pretty basic and only contain a toilet and hopefully some toilet paper.
How can I travel without an ID?
You may still fly on US domestic flights, provided that you go through additional identity and security screening at the TSA security checkpoint. So the bottom line is yes, you can fly domestically without a driver’s license, or other government-issued photo ID if either was lost or stolen.
Can a 17 year old ride Greyhound alone?
Travelers ages 17 and up Travelers 17 years of age and older pay the full fare and are allowed to travel unaccompanied with no restrictions.
