Rides for Responders

We want to support the first responders and frontline medical professionals who are volunteering their time and expertise by traveling to large cities or small towns to help in the fight against COVID-19.

We are offering 2 free* one-way Road Rewards tickets to those individuals who are traveling from their home to a city or town that needs additional support during the COVID-19 outbreak.  Currently serving over 1,000 destinations throughout the country, we have a unique ability to help get volunteers where they need to be.

If you’re a doctor, nurse, paramedic, EMT, medical technician, firefighter, member of law enforcement or mortician volunteering and needing to travel to your volunteer site, simply follow the steps below.

  1. Join Greyhound’s Road Rewards program (if you’re not already a member) and note your account number
  2. Send an email to volunteer.tickets@greyhound.com with a photo or scanned copy of your professional I.D.

It’s important to include all the following information:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address (listed on your Road Rewards Account)
  • Phone Number
  • Road Rewards Number
  • Profession
  • Volunteering in (city)
  • Intended Travel Date

In approximately 5 business days, we will deposit 2 one-way Road Rewards tickets into your Road Rewards account.  Once the tickets are in your account, you can book travel here or via our mobile app.  Just log in and choose to use a reward in the Book a Trip module.

Each Road Rewards ticket incurs a service fee of up to $2.99 one-way.  To further help our community, for every redeemed ticket, we will donate that same amount to the Red Cross, helping in their mission to bring disaster relief to families affected by unexpected tragedy and support relief efforts for the coronavirus outbreak.


Important things to note:

  • These tickets are valid for you only and are non-transferable
  • Tickets must be issued, and travel completed by February 28, 2022

If your volunteer efforts require additional free Road Rewards trips, just send an email to volunteer.tickets@greyhound.com and we will deposit two additional Road Rewards tickets into your Road Rewards account. A maximum of 8 requests per customer will be allowed.
