"Long distance buses -ugh" United States of America Transportation Tip by melosh

United States of America Transportation: 238 reviews and 257 photos

As with train travel, the frequency of buses between cities is poor. This is not an every person mode of transportation. In contrast to Mexico, in the US people travel by bus because they have to, not because they want to. You are likely to see, a select, generally poor collection of travellers during bus travel perhaps with the exception of some frequent "commuter" buses between eastern cities. The bus travel is generally safe, as standards are high, but do not expect any luxury buses like those found in countries with great competitive bus systems.
