What happens if a Greyhound bus is late for a transfer? You and your fellow passengers will be picked up by the next bus that has open seats.

Do Greyhounds stop for food?
While traveling on Greyhound your bus will stop frequently for bathroom and food breaks. Usually, every 2 or 3 hours your bus will either pull into a station or it will stop at a fast-food restaurant or convenience store.
