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 ...More
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.
