Pros
That I reached alive and in one piece
Cons
If the greyhound company closes
Tips
Never travel by greyhound. If you can walk, run or use a donkey to travel to your destination if you want to save money - better than travelling by greyhound

Pros
I travelled overnight and everything went smoothly. I was very comfortable and arrived exactly on time.
Cons
I embarked on my journey from Union Station in D.C. and there were no signs or directions to the coach station. It's also quite a long walk so trollies should be available to rent.
Tips
Drivers try to leave on time, so arrived at least 10 minutes befor departure.
