I rode Greyhound last week, from Houston to Victoria, Texas, a two hour ride. I went to the Greyhound station in Houston, and the ticket buying process was quick and easy, an attendant took me through the automated touch-screen ticketing process. The bus station is in a reputedly bad part of town, but I saw nothing scary about it, even though my bus left after dark. Security personnel is in evidence in the bus station. I had a two hour wait, and there were no scary people among the several dozen in the waiting room. In fact I had a nice conversation with one of them. There was a terrible ripoff cafe/snack bar inside the bus station, but a McDonalds across the street. The bus was only half full, although buses on that route are often full to capacity, with destinations on the Mexican border. The other passengers were polite and considerate and well-behaved.

I wonder if Greyhound has changed their business since Megabus.

The last time I've taken Greyhound was nearly 10 years ago (NYC to Ithaca). My longest trip was over 10 years ago (NYC to North Carolina). I absolutely hate Greyhound, service-wise and price-wise. Not only have the Greyhound staff at Port Authority been rude on more than one occasion, I find that their drivers are not always too pleasant. Moreover, Greyhound continues to be too expensive, especially compared to the competition. Also, I prefer the newer buses that much of the competition has to offer.
