Payment and ticket options

Ready to book a trip? You have 4 ways to buy your Greyhound tickets, with lots of flexible payment options and ticket types.

Choose how you want to pay


Payment options: Debit or credit card, cash, or Sezzle

Our new Sezzle payment option allows you to “Buy Now and Pay Later” with simple, interest-free installment plans. Pay as little as 25% at the time of the purchase and the remaining amount will be spread out over six week with 3 equal installments.

Look for the new Sezzle payment option during checkout!

Ticket options:

  • Buy online and get an E-Ticket, print your ticket at home and bring it to the station, or collect your ticket at the bus station.
  • Reserve online and pay with cash at a Greyhound station, 7-Eleven or ACE Cash Express store.

  • Simply select E-Ticket as your ticket option when purchasing your ticket.
  • Click the Check-In button two hours prior to your scheduled departure and get your E-Ticket instantly.
  • If you have a roundtrip, simply check-in two hours before your scheduled departure time for your return trip to get your E-Ticket.
  • When it’s time to board the bus, show your E-Ticket to the driver at bus-side and take your seat! It’s THAT easy! 

Print at Home

  • As soon as you pay online for your print at home ticket, you can print your ticket.
  • We’ll send you an 8-digit reservation number by email, so you can print it later, or reprint your ticket if you need to.
  • On the day you travel, just head to the departure gate with your ticket.
  • Print at Home tickets are non-transferable, so you can't give them to someone else.
Pick it up at a Greyhound station
  • Our Will Call service lets you buy your ticket online and collect it at a Greyhound station for a $5 fee.
  • Collect tickets from the counter or a self-serve kiosk (at some stations). You’ll need to bring your confirmation number and photo ID, and the credit card you used to pay with. Will Call fees are non-refundable.
  • If someone else is picking up the tickets you bought, they’ll need a password (which you can create while buying the ticket). 
Reserve your ticket and pay with cash at a 7-Eleven or Cash Express location (Available for Economy Fare)
  • Choose your tickets online and put them on hold (so you get the benefit of the cheaper online price).
  • Pay for them later in cash at any participating 7-Eleven location or ACE Cash Express location within 6 hours.

[!] Only E-Tickets will be available to purchase online within two hours of traveling.
