Use timetables based on 24 hours to reduce incorrect bookings like I made 11:30 could be 23:30. Change fee was a bit expensive, but I was happy to have option.

Bus was not booked to the gills so everyone had a seat to themselves, including me, which was much needed and comfortable. Bus was not booked to the gills so everyone had a seat to themselves, including me, which was much needed and comfortable.
Cons
At the Greyhound station I was told when I picked up my ticket that the departure gate was number 14 which it turns out was not true. Luckily I was able to find the right gate but with not much help from the staff.At the Greyhound station I was told when I picked up my ticket that the departure gate was number 14 which it turns out was not true.
