Are Greyhound buses comfortable?
Greyhound buses are comfortable, but if you sit on them for more than four hours the ride can become a real pain. The seats do recline quite far back, so you might be able to get some good sleep. Not including the time spent at bus stops.
What’s it like riding a Greyhound bus?
You meets lots of people on a long greyhound trip. And most of them will be pretty cool. And even the ones that aren’t are pretty darn interesting. I do more listening than talking on the bus and it’s amazing what people will tell you just because you are sitting next to them on an 8 hour leg of a 2 day trip.
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).
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.
Do you sleep on Greyhound bus?
That’s the fact that there are three consecutive seats next to each other, and if you want to sleep, you can stretch yourself across those three seats— and sleep. That’s a luxury on a Greyhound bus, especially on a very long journey.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Do Greyhounds 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.
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.
Has Greyhound been sold 2020?
