About Greyhound

Greyhound’s iconic brand is synonymous with affordable long-distance travel in North America and a unique national network. 

Founded in 1914, Greyhound Lines, Inc. is the largest provider of intercity bus transportation, serving 2,300 destinations across North America with a modern, environmentally friendly fleet. It has become an American icon, providing safe, enjoyable, and affordable travel to nearly 16 million passengers each year in the United States and Canada. The Greyhound running dog is one of the most recognized brands in the world.

While Greyhound is well known for its regularly scheduled passenger service, the company also provides a number of other services for its customers. Greyhound also offers charter packages for businesses, conventions, schools, and other groups at competitive rates.

In 2010, the company launched its premium city-to-city service, Greyhound Express, and has since quickly expanded the popular service to more than 135 markets across North America. It also operates Greyhound Connect, a service that connects rural communities to larger Greyhound markets in the United States.

In addition, Greyhound has interline partnerships with a number of independent bus lines across the United States. These bus companies provide complementary services to Greyhound Lines' existing schedules and link to many of the smaller towns in Greyhound Lines' national route system.

Amtrak passengers use Greyhound to make connections to cities not served by rail on Amtrak Thruway service by purchasing a ticket for the bus connection from Amtrak in conjunction with the purchase of their rail ticket. Passengers may also buy a bus ticket directly from Greyhound.

Flix SE acquired Greyhound Lines Inc. on October 21, 2021. Having already been present on the North American market with its FlixBus services since 2018, the purchase of Greyhound brought together two leaders in the intercity bus industry, combining FlixBus’ innovative global technology and shared mobility expertise with Greyhound’s iconic nationwide presence and experience. Since July 2022 the Dallas-based entity Flix North America, Inc. (“Flix North America”) oversees operations for both Greyhound and FlixBus across North America.

Together, FlixBus, Greyhound, and their partners continue to offer a smart, green, and connected World Class intercity bus experience, providing the best affordable option for even more people traveling throughout the United States.
