Greyhound Bus Lines
Known as the icon of the American bus industry, Greyhound has defined cheap bus travel across the USA ever since the company was founded in 1914. Within one hundred years it has become the country’s largest bus company with abundant routes covering large parts of the country and even the world. The bulk of bus travelers in the U.S. have long perceived Greyhound as the one and only bus when it comes to intercity travel. In 2007, the company was acquired by the UK’s leading transport corporation FirstGroup plc. Since then, Greyhound has continued to rapidly expand its market share all over the globe, while enhancing its bus schedules and offering high quality service in terms of comfort, convenience and safety. All of this while maintaining the same affordable Greyhound bus ticket prices the nation has been accustomed to since the company’s conception.

Greyhound Bus Schedules and Routes

Greyhound bus schedules

Greyhound's first bus route was a connection from Hibbing, Minnesotta to Alice, Minnesotta for $0.17 per ride. Nowadays, there is virtually no major American city that isn't connected by Greyhound bus routes. After the company's humble beginnings and thanks to its popularity during the late 1930s, the company expanded its routes and schedules to cover the whole American territory from coast to coast.

Greyhound Bus Lines currently serves 1589 cities in 49 states of the USA as well as Canada and Mexico with more than 197492 bus connections and over 3,100 Greyhound bus stations across North America. Where there is a bus, there is a Greyhound station!

Greyhound bus stations and bus stops

Greyhound Bus Stations

Greyhound has 230 stations across the United States. These stations are all officially branded Greyhound stations and are conceived to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Among the services available at many Greyhound stations are free WiFi to keep you busy while waiting for your bus (where you'll also have WiFi, by the way), fast food restaurants and convenience stores, charging stations for your electronic devices, such as smart phones, tablets and laptop computers. Other services include ATMs, restrooms and ticket and customer service offices. Finally, you'll be able to ship packages or baggage with the Greyhound Package Express service and to store your bags in the station for maximum mobility.

Apart from this, Greyhound has a gigantic network of partner stations in the country and a big number of convenient curbside stops and rest stops.


Historic Greyhound Stations

Few companies in America have become larger than their brand the way Greyhound did in the twentieth century. Among the reasons that helped the Dallas-based company achieve its legendary status are Greyhound stations. Many Greyhound bus stations went on to become more than just bus stations and became architectonic wonders of the twentieth century. The Blytheville Station in Arkansas and the Greyhound Bus Terminal in Evansville, Indiana, are two of the few original Art Deco stations still intact and were admitted into the National Registry of Historic Places in 1987 and 1979 respectively. The stations follow the Streamline Moderne style and are faithful representatives of 1940s America.

Greyhound Bus History

Greyhound, the now Dallas-based company, had its humble beginnings in Hibbing, Minnesota, in 1914. Swedish Immigrant Carl Wickman partnered with Andy Anderson to offer a bus service to miners going to and from work. After a failed attempt at selling then state-of-the-art Hupmobile, the Swedish immigrants decided to use it to serve the same route Wickman used to take before his entrepreneurial endeavors. The bus route proved popular and allowed Wickman and co. to continue expanding until the company began offering transcontinental trips to connect travelers from the West Coast and the East Coast in the 1920s. This was the beginning of the Greyhound history.

The name Greyhound didn’t arrive until after 1930 while being used in marketing campaigns to promote the less catchy “Motor Transit Company”. The 1930s also provided plenty of challenges to Greyhound with the aftermath of the Great Depression taking its toll on the company’s finances.

The decade, however, was also the beginning of Greyhound’s legendary status. In 1934, Greyhound buses were featured prominently on one of the biggest movies of the time, “It Happened One Night”. The “Hound” was central to the story, which was based on an heiress (Claudette Colbert) traveling the country on a Greyhound Bus after escaping her family’s house to then fall in love with a reporter (Clark Gable). The movie went on to be the first to win “The Big Five” Academy Awards and propelled the company to both national and international recognition. It was credited by many to be the beginning of the Greyhound Bus legend.

The company’s boon continued during the following decades until air travel and car ownership began to gain in popularity. Despite the challenges, Greyhound has remained one of the most successful business stories of the twentieth century and has come back from difficult periods several times to continue to offer bus routes in America, Canada and Mexico. Its humble beginnings and later success helped Greyhound to cement its place in American history and led local residents to found a museum, The Greyhound Bus Museum, in Hibbing, Minnesota, to document the company’s rich history.

The beginning of the twenty first century saw renewed success for the company and in 2008, Greyhound started to cooperate with Peter Pan Bus to form a new cheap bus travel company named BoltBus to compete with other major bus providers. This move has helped Greyhound Bus regain a huge market share which had previously been lost to its rivals.

In 2010, Greyhound Express, a low-cost and few-stops or even non-stop bus service, was officially introduced to the Northeast of the United States, in order to allow for faster bus travels. Up to now the express network connects over 900 city pairs in the U.S. In 2012, Greyhound Bus achieved another big milestone by launching its Chinatown service YO! Bus between New York and Philadelphia, making its cheap bus travel truly available now in every corner of America and its neighboring countries!

If you offered the same discount for seniors as for the military and for children, I believe more seniors would ride the bus. Those seniors with money will fly and only those seniors with limited resources will ride the bus. Or you could offer really good discounts for seniors on slow months for greyhound. I am a senior, age 81, and can nearly always find a flight less expensive than riding the bus. I guess, maybe, you don't want to "fool" with the seniors. One of these days, your older employees will be seniors.

Dear Kuku,

Currently, there are no direct routes from Houston, Texas to any of the major cities in New Jersey, such as Trenton, Newark or Jersey City. You can, however, take a bus directly to New York City and then travel to New Jersey from there. Generally, it’s cheaper to travel on weekdays than on weekends. For instance, you can travel from Houston to New York – Port Authority for $132.50 on Tuesday, September 19. Traveling this same route would cost $155 over the weekend. You can also receive a 20% discount for each of your children, since Greyhound allows two such discounts per adult.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch again.
