We got no information for 2 and half hours. then was told maybe 3 or 3:30. It was 2:20 at the time. I could Greyhound corporate and they couldn't do anything either. Awful. Treated like prisoners. The bus overheated to, had to pull over in the middle of the desert. If a driver calls in sick, there's got to be quicker way to solve the problem. Or at least speak to us like humans and communicate an ETA so we could get food or fresh air. That waiting room was purgatory. Never again Greyhound. never. More

I wish the break was a bit longer. It felt rushed and 20 minutes is not enough time to stretch, walk around, eat, and use the bathroom for a bus full of people.I wish the break was a bit longer.

Tips
I would encourage riders to have a small carry-on backpack with their essentials and then use the bottom of the bus for the majority of their luggage. There isn't a lot of space and so a small bag helps keep everyone feeling as comfy as possible without a lot of bulk.I would encourage riders to have a small carry-on backpack with their essentials and then use the bottom of the bus for the majority of their luggage.

The driver had the bus sitting with the air turned off in Las Vegas for the pickup, which meant temperature inside skyrocketed to where it never cooled down the entire trip. Would have preferred two stops for water and restroom due to the excessive heat.The driver had the bus sitting with the air turned off in Las Vegas for the pickup, which meant temperature inside skyrocketed to where it never cooled down the entire trip.

Need wifi & phone charger plug. Maybe, the driver need to smoke far from the bus, the smell went inside the bus, and we're smelling the smoke the whole time. Need wifi & phone charger plug.
