Does Greyhound actually check ID?
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. Alternative IDs, like a college ID, won’t work.

How Many Bags Can I Bring? Greyhound allows you to bring one carry-on bag and up to two checked bags with each adult ticket purchase. Your carry-on and checked bag will be included in the price of the ticket.

Does Greyhound weigh your luggage?
The good news is that the weight limitations on Greyhound are pretty straight forward. Your checked bags cannot weigh more than 50lbs (you are allowed two with each adult ticket, one for free the second is $15). And yes, they will weigh your checked bags to make sure they are not overweight.
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.
Can you buy a Greyhound ticket with cash?
Payment options: Debit/Credit card, or cash. Pay for them later in cash at any participating 7-Eleven location or ACE Cash Express location within 6 hours. Ticket options: Buy online and get an E-Ticket, print your ticket at home and bring it to the station, or collect your ticket at the bus station.
What is not allowed on Greyhound?
Guns, firearms, explosives and dangerous chemicals: Not allowed at all anywhere on the bus or in baggage.
Is a backpack considered a carry-on?
A carry-on bag must fit underneath the seat or in an enclosed overhead bin. Personal items include: Handbag, purse, or pocketbook, backpack, briefcase, laptop computer, with or without a bag.
Can you eat on Greyhound?
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 bring a backpack on Greyhound?
A Backpack as Your Carry-On Bag You are allowed one free carry-on bag and one free checked bag when you ride on the Greyhound bus. There are a number of options that you can choose from for your carry-on bag but the best one is probably a backpack.
Does a purse count as a carry on?
Technically, any piece of luggage that you “carry on” to an airplane is a carry-on bag. Most airlines allow one piece of carry-on luggage or “hand baggage” that can fit in the overhead bin, plus a “personal item” (a smaller purse, computer bag, diaper bag, small backpack, etc.
What happens if Greyhound loses your bag?
You need to submit a baggage claim form at your local terminal within 30 days of arriving at your destination (for lost baggage) or 7 days after receiving your baggage (for damaged baggage), and the claim process takes 60-90 days from the time we receive your form.
Can I bring two carry on bags?
The rule of thumb is that your personal item should fit under the seat in front of you. The personal item allowance is not an excuse to bring a second carry on bag. I’ve seen people do this and take up two spots in the overhead bin. Carry on luggage sizing rules also vary.
Can I take two backpacks as carry on?
In general, you can bring two backpacks on a plane with you if one of them is considered as carry-on luggage and the other one is small enough to be considered as a carry-on personal item. Carry-on luggage should fulfill the size restrictions as specified by the airlines and should fit in the overhead bin.
Can you sleep at Greyhound station?
You will exit your bus and the station you are supposed to wait at until you next bus arrives will be closed. Fortunately, in most of these situations passengers who are waiting for buses are allowed to stay inside the station even though it is technically closed.
