April 30, 2024- Visiting family

Lincoln to Omaha

Pros: It was clean, convenient, spacious, timely. Cons: Nothing. Tips: Tell your friends.



March 30, 2023- Solo travel

Lincoln to Omaha

June 29, 2022- Visiting family

Lexington to Omaha

Pros: People to talk with on the bus. Cons: Cleaner seats. Tips: Be on time.



April 11, 2022- Business

Lincoln to Denver

Pros: I liked not having to drive and having someone else do it. Cons: The bathroom was DISGUSTING. It made the entire bus smell like urine and when I had no choice because I literally felt I was going to explode, I had to use the restroom and I almost puked. We sat in the middle forward part of the bus and the fact that it smelled like that I can’t even imagine what it must be like sitting the whole time in the back. Also the seats were filthy. I always travel with Lysol wipes / anti bacterial wipes and just using a couple on the head piece and the back of the seats the wipes came out black. BLACK disgusting dirt. I couldn’t believe the bus would of been cleaned even if you paid me. Tips: Travel light. There is very very little time between stops and someone can very easily grab your luggage from down in the compartment for luggage.



March 18, 2022- Visiting family

Lincoln to Omaha

Pros: Quick trip for a decent price. Cons: No issues. Tips: Definitely print your bus ticket like it says when you buy it, the depot wasn't able to print them and some people did miss the bus because of it.
