Greyhound is a bus service with over 2000 bus terminals across the United States. That is an excellent option for those who like to travel for the holidays and do not come there themselves. The lines at Greyhound Terminal are less tight than at the airport, and you can get back in your seat and relax for the ride.
Greyhound also offers amazing fares, so you can save money by driving your car or on expensive flights. As the routes provided by Greyhound are constantly updated to meet the needs of customers, browse the Internet or contact their headquarters to see what you can offer. They provide sleeping, warmth and air conditioning, and comfortable seating with lights so you can read after dark. Do not expect a meal to serve, however. You will need to bring your food and drink on the bus.
Greyhound buses do not have seats, so you need to arrive at the terminal early when you travel for the holidays. It would help if you created sure you get a seat choice. If you are travelling with friends, you want to make sure they have seats close to you. Spreading their children can be a hassle for a single parent travelling on a Greyhound bus. You can always expect some people to want to change seats, but you can’t guarantee that.
One of the issues that many people are concerned about is the safety issues with Greyhound buses. Unlike Amtrak and various airlines, they have not updated their security measures since 09/11/01. The use of metal detectors on buses is randomly fit, but their availability is not guaranteed. That means that there may be people on the bus with weapons with them. That is a risk that some holiday travellers may crawl over to use this mode of transport.
Thus, Greyhound is working to improve its image and gain more trust from customers going on holiday. They are working to provide high-quality bus stops if you have to wait long to leave your location. Many of these bus stops also have a rental car agency so you can get to your final destination without having to bother picking someone up.
They have also launched random security checks at various Greyhound bus terminals in major cities. Those who buy a ticket must show a photo ID, and their bags will randomly search. They are also working to provide video cameras to record what is happening on the bus. While there are no significant safety issues when people travel on buses on vacation, they want to ensure the public does their duty to ensure it doesn’t happen.
Even for most holiday travellers, boarding a Greyhound bus ensures that you can reach your destination without stress and without driving yourself. The cost is quite affordable. They need to make sure that a Greyhound bus takes longer because they only go the speed limit and stop near the various bus stops on the route.

- I started this newsletter/website for fun. It all began when I e-mailed a few friends who traveled a lot, and wanted to earn as many miles as I did. We competed to see who could accrue more miles, and after kicking their butts (I learned a lot traveling 150,000 miles a year), I decided to be nice and help my friends out.
