Pros: Comfortable, spacious, air conditioned, WiFi worked sort of well. Cons: Greyhound clearly has organizational problems. Bus nearly broke down twice and the driver explained he had no way of contacting a mechanic to help the problem. All of the numbers he was calling were disconnected. We stopped for 5 minutes to let the engine “recycle” as he called it. And then again when the radiator was having trouble. Really feared being stranded and the lack of greyhound to not have a system of dealing with a standard problem like this is worrisome for future travels. Tips: Probably ride with a more reliable bus service.More
