Pros: The waiting roms were comfortable with restrooms nearby and wifi. The announcement were clear and comprehensible. Instructions for finding the bus departure point were precise. The bus driver was adorable, very diplomatic when he had to calm down argumentative passengers. Cons: The wifi on the bus itself wasn't strong enough.

Pros: The Greyhound bus saved us a fortune and we traveled from San Francisco to LA for less that $100 for two people. Cons: We booked our tickets in advance a year ago. Showed up at the bus station and initially didn’t try to get on the first LA bus to arrive, saying we were taking the 12.45am bus. Luckily the staff said this bus doesn’t exist any more and when they scanned our tickets they were invalid. We had to go to Oakland on the bus to get our tickets reissued and lucky there was still room for us. For those booking tickets in advance, we could have done with better communication from Greyhound who hadn’t told us about this change in schedule. Thankfully, the kind driver sorted us out, otherwise this would have seriously messed up our travel plans. If I’d been organised enough to book tickets in advance, I expect to be contacted about schedule changes. The only email I received from Greyhound was one about how to wear a face covering! Tips: Snacks- you stop at standard bus stations rather than service stations, with no food/ drink stalls or vending machines. Pack plenty of food, snacks and drinks with you. It is a slow ride to LA due to the number of stops- so make the most of it by bringing plenty of books and something to watch. If this bus ride is in the middle of a busy trip, appreciate the time where you can rest and don’t have to do anything!

Pros: It achieved everything it set out to do, in a way agreeable to both of us. Cons: Improvment implies a problem to be fixed; there were no problems. Tips: If you plan to sleep, bring something to put over your eyes.

Pros: It's a cheap trip and a very direct route. Pretty good timing all things considered and a relatively quiet trip. Cons: It would be great if you DO NOT offer wifi and entertainment without any kind of guarantees. We booked this trip with expressed expectation of being able to use WIFI to work throughout the day. We didn't even get one second of wifi and had to ice down any work we were planning on doing. Pretty frustrating to be honest. The seats were also kind of small/cramped and we hit our heads on the ceiling of the bus a few times. Tips: DO NOT take these buses if you 'expect' to get work done through the internet/wifi. Not even a mention from staff that wifi wasn't an option.

Pros: Bus rest stop actually near food I can eat and a Starbucks too. Tips: Pack snacks and water, it wouldn’t hurt to pack you lunch, download a few good movies and you’ll be set.
