👉 Before your trip

Aim to arrive at your stop at least 20 mins prior to the time your trip is due to depart. Check that your baggage isn’t over limit by reading the baggage allowance guidelines.

Ensure you have your ticket ready when boarding.

👉 On your trip

Most Greyhound bus trips will have at least one rest stop (depending on the length of the trip), where you’ll be able to get out, stretch your legs, use the restroom and/or purchase food and beverages. Remember to bring small change in case the bus stops at a smaller rest stop or store. We also recommend stocking up on supplies before you leave for your trip, as there are no beverages or food options available on the bus itself.

The Greyhound bus drivers go through rigorous training and Greyhound buses are checked regularly and before each trip to ensure safety compliance.
