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
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.

The bus was very timely and the trip was quick.
If the backs of the seats went a bit higher, they would be more comfortable.
Get there earlier if you want to have a window seat.

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