Average score for buses from Pittsburgh to New York

(Based on 32 ratings and reviews)




April 7, 2024- Couples trip


Pros: Very quiet. Cons: Keep power on far as being able to charge your phone. Tips: Be on time.



March 24, 2024- Visiting friends


Pros: I appreciated the comfortability of the seats, the power outlets, and the bathroom on board! Cons: The seats were slightly dirty. Tips: Bring food because you don't know when the bus will stop.



October 2, 2023- Business


Pros: Very comfortable and efficient- bus was very clean, timely, and easy to book. In a world where airlines are so unreliable and overpriced, I’d take Greyhound any day! Cons: Only issue I had was that seats were assigned when there many empty seats on the bus. My seat mate ended up taking one of said empty seats since they weren’t being used. But even if he hadn’t, comfortable enough!



December 22, 2022- Visiting friends


Pros: The punctuality and the helpful driver. Cons: There was no wifi on the bus even though it was included in the ticker price. In such cases, it would be a good move on the company's part to refund some money amount back to the customers as we paid for a service that was not provided.



October 27, 2022- Visiting family


Cons: Plz change bus sit. Tips: Filxbus.
