I used my wife's credit card to purchase a return ticket through Greyhound Bus lines. According to the...
September 13, 2008. Hwy #3 east of Osoyoos 35-40kms.
West bound Bus "LOCAL" 1276.
On the above mentioned evening at/around 4:45-5 pm I was travelling in my vehicle to Osoyoos at the speed limit of 100 kms /hr., approaching a double lane . The Grey hound Bus # 1276 Local west bound ;all of a sudden came speeding up behind me, at least 20- 25kms faster, and attemted to pass me with on-coming vehicles.As we were coming to a hill he lost power and had to pull back. I felt he was being extremely dangerous : speeding, Attempting to pass out of nowhere from behind, Aggressively honking his horn, and then persisting to tailgate me, only 1 car length apart, for 35 kms to Osoyoos.I attempted to take fotos out of my window to show how close he was and could see him laughing and waving to me. I am appalled w/ his agressive and unsafe speeding, tailgating: pushing me to 115- 120 kms. /hr for 35kms( 1 car length apart). til I could find a safe place to pull over.Please ensure me this driver will be reprimanded for such irresponsible behavior. Thank-you, Eric.
If I do not hear anything back in 7 days I will report to the headquarters and RCMP.
I booked from the Greyhound website an end-of-summer trip from Toronto, On, to Niagara Falls for me, my teenage sons and my mother. For starters, our names were truncated and there were some codes (no explanation) on the ticket. No one to date returned my email inquiry about those codes. We were at the station one hour before trip time, as instructed at booking time. We had to line up amid turning buses (such an ugly and dangerous facility at Toronto's Bay street terminal!). When the 12:15 pm bus (Texas plate number) finally arrived, the driver and his helper kept the engine idling under everyone's nose for more than 30 minutes, while they were sorting passengers according to destinations, shouting instructions over the engine noise and trying to figure out what to do with us passengers for Niagara. My son has respiratory problems and wanted us to forfeit the whole thing, and my elderly mother was tired of standing in line. When I asked the driver why he was idling (the City of Toronto has an anti-idling bylaw), all he had to tell me was "JUST GO!". The bus left (30 min late) without informing Niagara-bound folks left behind of what's planned for them. I went back to the Info wicket, they paged a Greyhound customer rep, who came rushing somewhere esle and muttered something without even stopping. Eventually another bus was pulled for Niagara and the trip continued without further aggravation. This seems to be business as usual for Greyhound and the Bay terminal. Needless to say, complaining to Grayhound is just a waste of time. They don't care and they will not fix their inefficient and unfriendly processes. Piece of advice: take Viarail instead (which we did on our way back) - pleasant trip, right on time, you are treated with courtesy and respect, and you pay the same money.
I was riding on your bus from Penn Station, Newark NJ to Buffalo. There was a bit of a misunderstanding with the person who I was communicating the itinerary with, as such believed I had to catch a connecting Bus in Port Authority, Manhattan, NY, which I'm still not sure if that is the case.
Needless to say, I did not make the connection.
To make a long story short: I had with me a sports bag with some very important items; my clothes, my ID, my wallet, and over 2000 cash.
The bus schedule was for 9:40pm departure from Penn Station, on August 28'th. I felt for security reasons, I would empty my pockets and place them into my bag, which I never anticipated to be disconnected from. A move I sorely regret.
On Aug 29'th I received a voice message on my phone from Buffalo, Greyhound PackageXpress stating they had my bag. The number that was given was [protected].
Since then, I've been trying desperately to get a hold of someone via numerous attempts per day at that number, and across your entire spectrum of available contact points, including email, general info and customer support, web support forms, all without luck in terms of progressing any closer to resolution.
I can understand there may be delays due to the recent weather conditions (both local and national) and also the Labor Day holiday, and I'm certain your men and women are doing a fantastic job. I've never had a problem with your service line, and am a big fan of Greyhound.
I am however, in a desperate situation as I need my bag urgently. I was recently made a job offer in Chicago, and was going to have family members in Buffalo drive me to Chicago to help me find an apartment and help with transportation until I figured my way around.
That had to be cancelled due to this difficult circumstance.
I start my job in Chicago in Sept. 8, and plan to be there by the 6'th or 7'th.
I appeal to your kindness, generosity, and general concern for your loyal customers, and implore your assistance to expedite the resolution of this matter, the timing of which for me personally is of utmost importance. It is now nearly a week, without any word.
My bags description: florescent greenish/blue sports bag, 3 feet long by 2 feet wide, had my id, clothes, sneakers, wallet, cash.
Your assistance on this matter would be so greatly appreciated.

It is hard to imagine any company worse in all respects than Greyhound. In addition to being incompetent in all respects, they are are racists (black against white)

When I was eighteen, I was going to school in Chicago. I didn't have a car, so when it came time to go home over Christmas, my parents sent me tickets for Greyhound to get back home to Dayton Ohio. I was slightly nervous with it being my first time traveling alone. My day from hell has a number of chapters, spanning a number of locations. It started easily enough when I arrived over an hour early at the bus station. I just wanted to get myself situated, and make sure I was in the right place. Went and checked in with an agent, and she wrote the number of my "gate" on the back of pamphlet so that I would end up in the right place.
I was the first person at my "gate" (really just one of several doors leading to the outside) and sat down to wait in line. As the hour progressed, more and more people lined up behind me, and the lines at the gates on either side of me increased as well.
They started to announce the arrivals of the buses, and imagine my surprise when I hear that the bus I need is not leaving from MY gate, but the one to the right of me! I went immediately to an agent who was directing traffic, and showed him the fact the other agent had written down the wrong gate. He merely told me to get to the back of the line. I went to another agent, who allowed me to get to a proper place in the line, since I had been there before ANYONE else.
Because it was the holidays and Greyhound doesn't really "reserve" enough places on their buses, they'd had to call in buses from other companies to help carry their load. I ended up on one of the rentals, and settled in for the trip to Indianapolis, where I was supposed to switch buses.
In Indianapolis, everything literally fell apart. Greyhound was so overbooked, we were told flat out that there was not even close to enough room on the bus that we were supposed to be switching to. As my busload had come inside to check back in (like you're SUPPOSED to) and waiting in line again, other customers who were just arriving outside began making a mad dash to the bus that was ALREADY almost full. All we could do was WATCH.
I was talking with a ticket agent, who assured me she would find me a place on that bus, because hardly any of the lines were literally going through Dayton. As she's talking to me...the bus pulls away. At that point we were informed that we had two options -
1.Wait five hours in Indianapolis for another bus.
2.Take another bus immediately to Cincinnati, where we we could switch once more.
Cincinnati is only about an hour from Dayton, so I decided to take my chances with getting a bus out of there, rather than sit in Indianapolis for several hours. Everything was happening so fast - the bus for Cincinnati turned out to be the very rental bus we had all just gotten off of. So a large group of us are walking back outside to get BACK on the bus we'd gotten off of, and one of the workers begins throwing an ABSOLUTE fit, yelling and cursing at people, treating them like cattle, screaming at them to get on the bus.
Everything had happened so fast that I hadn't even got a chance to call my parents, and tell them what in the world was going on. I didn't have a cell-phone, so I had no way of letting them know where I was going, or when I would actually be home. They told me later on they had been in a near panic when I hadn't shown up when I was supposed to. They called Greyhound, but once again, Greyhound doesn't do "reservations", so they had literally no idea what bus I was on, or where in creation I was!
When we got to Cincinnati nobody could tell me anything. I went to the "gate" I was told to wait at, and proceeded to sit on the floor alone for 45 minutes, wondering if a bus for Dayton was even coming. When the bus DID arrive, I went out to meet the driver, and showed him my ticket. As I was trying to explain why it didn't match his route, he literally begins YELLING at me. "Just get on the bus! Just get on the bus!"
It might sound stupid, but just going back over it makes me want to cry. I could not BELIEVE the way people had acted that day. You know, I can understand being overbooked for the holidays. I can excuse the fact that I had to ride on a rental bus, and that passengers had to shout out directions to get to the Greyhound Station in Cincinnati because the driver didn't know where it was. What I CANNOT accept is the rude, unbelievable treatment we the customers were subjected to, because THEY Had overbooked. I'll never forget it. And to anyone thinking about taking Greyhound... seriously, think again.
I went back to help my mother move and to pick up a truck. Greyhound gouges your eyeballs out on for prices, and the selection stinks. Then when not eating at the terminal you don't get a choice of good food. They stood at BurgerKing, Arby's and McDonalds. What is wrong with something like SUBWAY where you get something that can pass for fresh while a good helping of veggies?
BEWARE OF THE PHONES IN THE GREYHOUND WAITING AREAS.
$5 a minute may not seem like much to you but for what I spent on 4 calls I could have had cellphone service. DO NOT USE THOSE DAMNED PHONES.
Ok well lets start of saying that greyhound is not helpful with what they do they lose your personal items such as luggage and then give you the run around to get it back... well i came from tampa fl back to texas where i live from the holidays get to my destination and my bags were no where to be found and then i went inside of the station and the agent with vtc valley transit couch says to me its not my problem drive back to houston and gave me a form which he was suppose to file and didn't so know i have no clothes no laptop and i have to drive a whole hour to Houston to try to get something done i am frustrated pissed off and more than all disgusted of the whole situation...

Letter written to:
Greyhound Lines, Inc.
Mr. Steve Gorman, CEO
P.O. Box 660689
Dallas, Texas 75266
I would like to inform you of a disturbing incident that took place on May 18, 2007 aboard your Greyhound bus. It was caused by one of your employees and was exacerbated by the fact that Greyhound.com does not list the address of bus stop locations on your website.
On May 18, I purchased a one way ticket to Lemore, CA at the Paso Robles, CA Greyhound station for my 16 year old daughter, Vincenza Zenobio. Before boarding, I personally spoke to the Greyhound bus driver and confirmed with him that Lemore would be the second stop. I was told that the first stop was Kettlemen City and the second stop would be Lemore and the driver acknowledged that he would stop there for my child. My daughter checked her luggage which was tagged to Lemore with the driver. There is no question that prior to boarding the driver acknowledged that he understood my daughter would be getting off in Lemore. We had made arrangements for my niece to be waiting in Lemore for my daughter when the bus arrived.
The problem is that the driver forgot to stop in Lemore! My daughter questioned the driver after he failed to stop and he informed her that the next stop was Hanford. My daughter called me on her cell phone, in a panic, and said that the driver would now be dropping her off in Hanford. I then informed my niece of the driver's mistake and told her to drive to Hanford. The problem was that my niece had no idea where the Hanford bus stop was, and when I searched your website to find the location for her, I discovered that Greyhound does not list the bus stop addresses on its website. So now I have my 16 year old child that is being dropped off in a city where no one is there to meet her because your driver failed to stop at her final destination; and we have no way of knowing the location/address of the drop off point.
I am upset because the driver failed to let off my child at the proper bus stop and because Greyhound does not list the bus stop addresses on their website. The safety of my daughter was placed in jeopardy, and as a customer who pays for your service, I am outraged. The fact that my niece was able to ask around at a Hanford hotel and get directions to the actual Greyhound bus stop, is fortunate for both parties but does not change the fact that there is a flaw in your system.
I would like to have receive a written apology form the bus driver that failed to stop for my child. I would like to receive compensation for a ticket that was purchased and turned into a nightmare and near disaster. I would like to see Greyhound list the bus stop addresses on its website. What would the liability have been for Greyhound if some tragedy had befallen my child in Hanford?... hmmm?
Not only did Greyhound over charge my bank account for my ticket, they also had me on hold with customer...

In light of global warming it is disgusting to see the Greyhound buses idling hours on end. I live behind a Greyhound bus station and there is a big sign in the station's window asking the bus drivers to turn off their buses. This does not always happened. The continuous idling disrupts my sleep and the exhaust filters through my windows often setting off my fire alarm. I have complained about this before, but nothing seems to stop the bus drivers from leaving their engines on. We have even had confrontation with the drivers when we have personally gone down to the station and ask them to turn off the buses. Idling contributes to air and noise pollution and should be stopped. I phoned our town office and there is even a bylaw that prohibits idling. But the noise and stink continues. Greyhound really does contribute to global warming and should be fined.
