18 December 2019- Solo travel

25 November 2019- Visiting family


Pros: Very smooth, on time, not overly-packed, quiet. Cons: Passengers need to use headphones rather than playing movies/music out loud; power outlets were not working. Tips: Bring backup phone charger if power outlets aren’t working.



5 October 2019- Vacation


Pros: The megabits service to Burlington is always amazing! Plus it always reaches on time. Tips: When traveling from Boston to Burlington and back, always book Megabus!



16 July 2019- Visiting friends


Pros: This was my first time taking a Greyhound bus and travelling alone so I was a bit apprehensive. I told the driver that it was my first trip on a bus and that I was nervous. He was so nice and friendly and he said that he'd take good care of me. The bus left on time and arrived on time. Cons: This isn't a Greyhound issue but it would be nice to have more food/refreshment options at the South Station bus terminal in Boston.



13 July 2019- Visiting family


Pros: I love that someone else drove! Tips: Bring a sweater during the summer, the AC is chilly!

The Freedom Trail officially begins in Boston Common, the oldest public park in the U.S. and a beautiful spot for walking, picnicking, or ice skating in the winter. Foodies will love tasting the Italian cuisine in the North End and the modern eateries of South End, while sports fans can tour Fenway Park, and art lovers can explore the expansive Museum of Fine Arts.

From Boston, travelers can easily get to the beachy summer destination of Cape Cod, or surrounding states like New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island.
