Pros
I got me from point A to point B.
Cons
The greyhound staff were rude and not helpful at all. I ended up missing my first bus and had to buy another ticket for the next one. Complete waste of money. The driver was the rudest person I have ever met, and the bus smelled absolutely terrible. And we got in late.
