Greyhound Anticipates Successful Labor Day Weekend Travel
Greyhound Lines carried more than 470,000 passengers during the Labor Day holiday period in 1999. This year we anticipate carrying more than 500,000 passengers.

Greyhound passengers travel when they want to, with no restrictions on everyday low friendly fares. Unlike air travel, there are no advance-purchase requirements, no seat restrictions and no Saturday stayovers requirements.

With more than 3,700 locations, we connect rural North America to big cities. For fare and schedule information in the U.S., call Greyhound at 1-800-231-2222 or visit our Web site at

Our mission is to provide the opportunity for anyone to travel between cities in North America with safety, dignity and convenience.

With more than 20,000 daily departures and 3,700 destinations in North America, Greyhound can take travelers where they want to go, when they want to get there, at a price they can afford. Our average ticket price is only $36.
