Greyhound Expects More Than One Million Customers to Travel for Christmas

DALLAS (Dec. 17, 2014) — Greyhound, the largest provider of intercity bus transportation, is gearing up for one of the busiest holiday seasons, with nearly a million customers expected to travel to more than 3,800 destinations across North America.

With Christmas and New Year’s approaching, Greyhound reiterates to customers that traveling by bus is one of the safest, most convenient and affordable ways to travel this holiday season. With no middle seat, customers can travel more comfortably and enjoy the aisle or window seat, as well as other modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, power outlets, extra legroom and leather seats.

“This season is all about spending time with family and friends, and we offer our customers a safe, dependable and hassle-free option that allows them to avoid the stress of driving their car or traveling via other modes of transportation,” said Myron Watkins, vice president, customer experience, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “Customers can sit back, relax and enjoy the trip.”

Greyhound also eliminates the concern of travel expenses. With fares starting as low as $1, customers can book affordable travel and save their money for the holidays. The first bag also can be checked for free, with the second bag only $15.

This holiday season, Greyhound once again anticipates heavy customer volume and encourages customers to purchase tickets in advance and arrive at least one hour before their scheduled departure time. Tickets are valid only on the date and schedule for which they were purchased. If customers wish to change travel arrangements, tickets can be re-issued for a fee if seats are available.
