Pros: The bus driver was the only good thing about the trip. He was kind, polite, and had a positive attitude despite the fact that he had to squeeze two buses of people into one bus. The first half of those people had been waiting for over an hour for the delayed bus and we're angry, but he stayed calm and professional. Cons: Communication. There was no communication on Greyhounds part as to why the 7:00 bus was over an hour late. And no communication to those of us on the 8:00 bus that our bus was a half hour late- or possibly more if we weren't able to fit on the delayed 7:00 bus. The bus tracker page wasn't working and the "departure status" screens at the terminal weren't working. No staff to be found in the info booth or that came down to talk to us. lots of confusion and stressed out customers. On the bus, I was squished in next to a customer in the handicapped seat who had an injury and needed extra space. The bus smelled like a porta potty (even through a kn95 mask) and clearly needed to be cleaned. Tips: Try a different bus line.

They delayed the departure and wasted 40 people's time for a passenger who was supposed to arrive with another bus. I lost my next bus to my destination and had to pay $90 for an Uber!

Pros: The bus on which I was originally scheduled to leave was 5 hours late. The staff was very helpful finding me a seat on an earlier bus, which, though still 2 hours late, would still get me to my destination at the time I needed to be there. Cons: Honest communication about why buses are delayed and what alternatives there are. Tips: Check the status of your bus often before you plan to leave. Get to the station early enough to doublecheck and change plans if need be.

Greyhound Cancellation Policy

Greyhound tickets are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled. It’s always a good idea to double check your travel details before completing your booking, especially for non-refundable tickets.

You can change your Greyhound bus ticket for a different travel date by calling Greyhound’s customer service phone number at +1 (800) 231-2222. Greyhound charges a ticket exchange fee of $20 USD, and changes must be requested before the bus departs. You can change the date and time of the trip, but not the departure or arrival locations.

Wanderu also offers an affordable trip protection option by Allianz Global Assistance that you can purchase when booking your tickets. In addition to 24-hour assistance during your trip and coverage for lost or damaged baggage, trip protection can help you get your money back in case you need to cancel or change your trip. You may be reimbursed if you cancel your bus trip due to covered reasons such as illness, extreme weather, or required work shifts. If you need to change your ticket, you may also file a claim to have the $20 Greyhound change fee reimbursed.

Greyhound Baggage Policy

Carry On Bags: You can bring one bag up to 25 lbs (or 11 kg) on to the bus with you. The bag must be able to fit into the overhead bin or fully under the seat in front of you.

Checked Baggage: You are allowed to bring up to 2 bags that will be placed under the bus for the duration of your trip. Each bag needs to be less than 50 lbs (or 22.5 kg), with a maximum total size of 62 inches when the width, length and height of the bag are all added up.

Traveling on Greyhound with Disabilities

If you have a disability or reduced mobility, Greyhound will provide service in accordance with the ADA and work to ensure your trip is as comfortable as possible. If you would like assistance during any part of your journey, ask the driver or a customer service representative and they can assist you with boarding, or help you store mobility aids or baggage. Service animals and other mobility aids like canes or walkers are always welcome onboard, depending on your needs.

The first row of Greyhound buses is reserved for the elderly and customers with disabilities. When booking your Greyhound ticket on Wanderu, you can add a wheelchair seat to your reservation on the Trip Summary page. Greyhound buses are equipped with a wheelchair lift, and you can either travel sitting in your wheelchair, or board the bus and then stow your wheelchair or mobility scooter in the baggage compartment.

Traveling with a Group on Greyhound

Want to travel as a group on Greyhound? You can book up to five tickets in one reservation on Wanderu. Simply add more travelers on the Trip Summary page, and then type each passenger’s name on the checkout page.

If you choose to print the tickets at home, the email address on the reservation will receive the tickets for each of the passengers traveling on the bus. Alternatively, you could choose to pick up the tickets for your group at the bus station by selecting the will-call option on the checkout page.

Greyhound Bus Guide & FAQs

Can you reschedule your Greyhound trip?

Yes, you can reschedule your Greyhound tickets for another date or time. A $20 change fee applies in addition to any difference in the ticket price.

Are Greyhound tickets refundable?

No, Greyhound tickets are typically nonrefundable, unless you purchase a more expensive ticket that explicitly includes the flexibility to refund it.

Do Greyhound buses have WiFi?

Yes, Greyhound offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with Greyhound will have WiFi as advertised, some buses might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Greyhound WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

How many total passengers fit on a Greyhound bus?

Most Greyhound buses have between 50 and 55 passenger seats. However, depending on the bus model, some buses in Greyhound’s fleet might have smaller or larger capacities.

Are there power outlets or USB plugs on the bus?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Greyhound buses. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Greyhound might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

What is Greyhound's schedule?

On a typical day, Greyhound has 33796 scheduled bus trips in total. However, the exact departure and arrival times vary depending on the day and route. The best way to find the exact schedule for your trip is to use the search tool on this page.

Can you pick up will call tickets at the station?

Yes, Greyhound offers the option to purchase will call tickets. Will call tickets are an option that allows you to book the tickets ahead of time online, then pick up the tickets from an agent or kiosk once you arrive at the station. Note that you will need to bring the confirmation information you received when you made your ticket purchase.

What is Greyhound’s pet policy?

Greyhound does not allow pets or animals onboard the bus. The only exception to this policy is for trained service animals accompanying a passenger with a disability.

How much is a child ticket?

On Greyhound buses, one infant (under the age of 2) can ride for free if they sit on an adult's lap. All passengers older than 2 will need a standard, full-priced ticket for travel.

Do you need an ID to get on the bus?

Yes, Greyhound requires you to present an ID to an agent to be allowed to board the bus. Make sure you have identification issued by a government agency that meets the carrier’s requirements. Alternative IDs, such as a college ID, won’t work.

Can you track a Greyhound bus?

Thanks to Greyhound’s BusTracker tool, you can easily track your Greyhound bus online and know when it is expected to arrive. Live status updates show your bus’ progress and where it is along its route. This is also a helpful tool if someone is picking you up from the arrival station.

What are Greyhound’s COVID-19 policies?

Visit our COVID-19 Travel Guide to view the most up-to-date information about Greyhound’s cleaning protocols and adjusted ticket change policies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Can you buy a Greyhound ticket for someone else?

Sure thing! It’s actually cheaper to do so on Wanderu. Greyhound normally charges an $18 USD fee to buy a ticket that will be used by another person. You can avoid this fee by quickly and easily ordering a ticket on Wanderu for the person who will be traveling. Just make sure you enter their personal details in the passenger information fields.

At check-out, you can choose a print-at-home ticket (which will be emailed to you, and you can forward it to the traveler) or a will-call ticket (which the traveler can pick up at the station).

Are there bathrooms on Greyhound buses?

Yes, there are bathrooms on Greyhound buses. The bathrooms are pretty basic and include a toilet, toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Most bathrooms don’t have running water. As you will be using a bathroom on a moving vehicle, please use caution and hold on to a rail at all times.

Can you bring a bicycle on a Greyhound bus?

Greyhound allows bikes to be transported in the under-bus baggage compartment for a fee. Make sure that your bicycle is packaged into an approved bike box or container. The container must be securely sealed for the trip.

Bicycles count as an oversized item. Depending on the station that you depart from, they might need to be shipped through Greyhound Package Express. If your bike needs to be shipped via Greyhound Package Express, the fee is between $42 to $52 USD, based on the distance you travel. Please contact the carrier ahead of time for an exact quote on how much it would cost to bring your bicycle.

Can you travel without an ID?

If you do not have an ID, you must contact Greyhound directly to ask what options there are for you to travel without an ID. For example, you may be able to set up a password to collect your will-call ticket and/or board the bus.

Are meals or beverages available?

Greyhound does not offer meals or beverages onboard. We recommend you bring a drink and some snacks for your trip. We also suggest packing a reusable water bottle with you to reduce your impact on the environment. However, note that most buses do not allow you to bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Do you have to print your Greyhound ticket?

Yes, Greyhound requires that all passengers have printed tickets to board the bus. When you book with Wanderu and activate your account, you will be able to easily find and download your tickets for most buses.

Does Greyhound offer any premium features like extra legroom or movies?

Greyhound goes the extra distance to deliver premium features to its customers.

Movies are provided during the bus trip to keep you entertained. Don’t forget to bring your favorite pair of headphones, as headphones are not always included on the bus. We recommend in-ear noise cancelling headphones due to their small size.

Board games are all the rage these days and Greyhound is keeping up with the latest trends by providing games you can play with your seat neighbors.

Can children travel unaccompanied on Greyhound?

Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by someone aged 17 or older in order to travel on a Greyhound bus. Anyone over the age of 17 qualifies as an adult when traveling on Greyhound.

Children between the ages of 12 and 16 may travel on Greyhound unaccompanied. However, there are certain restrictions and important procedures that you must follow. An Unaccompanied Child Form must be completed in person at the bus station, and tickets for unaccompanied minors cannot be purchased online.

You’ll also notice that buses limit the time spent idling to reduce emissions at stations. A green thumbs-up for Greyhound, and one for you too, for choosing to travel by bus.
