Why is Greyhound so bad?
Why are greyhound buses perceived so bad? Especially the ones going into the South. 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. Also Greyhound stations are typically notoriously in bad neighborhoods, not sure why.
How early should I be at Greyhound?
How early should I get to the bus station? At Greyhound, boarding begins up to 20 minutes before departure time. If you have your ticket and are traveling with carry-on bag only, just be at the gate at your boarding time.
Do they search your bags on Greyhound?
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. Some Greyhound bus stations have security some don’t.
What happens if I miss the Greyhound bus?

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.
Are there bathrooms on greyhounds?
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 get a discount on Greyhound tickets?

Does a backpack count as a carry on Greyhound?
There are no size limits for carry-on bags listed on Greyhound’s website. 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.
Is taking a bus cheaper than flying?
Distance. For shorter distances, there’s a clear winner: taking the bus is both relatively fast and much cheaper. In some cases, especially when no direct flights are available, traveling by bus takes a clear lead in terms of both time and price.
