Greyhound Preparing to Carry More Than a Million Customers During Holiday Travel Season

DALLAS (Dec. 12, 2013) — With more than a million customers expected to travel by Greyhound this holiday season, the largest provider of intercity bus transportation is preparing for one of the busiest travel periods of the year across more than 3,800 destinations in North America.

"The holidays are a time for family and friends to get together, and we are ready to give customers a safe, reliable and affordable travel experience," said Myron Watkins, vice president, customer experience, Greyhound Lines, Inc. "Rather than the stress of taking their car, customers can leave the driving to us and forget about the hassles associated with driving themselves."

The majority of Greyhound's fleet features premium amenities including leather seats, extra legroom, power outlets and free onboard WiFi allowing customers to stay connected from the time they leave the terminal until they arrive at their destination.

Customers should plan to arrive at least an hour prior to their schedule and purchase their tickets ahead of time due to the high volume of customers traveling at this time of the year. More travel tips from Greyhound can be found on The Hound (
