How to get a refund
If you've bought a Flexible fare and want a refund, you'll need to send us your original ticket(s), along with your written refund request. Please send these to:
Greyhound Lines, Inc.

Plans changed? No problem. You can swap your ticket for a different travel date or time. Here's the deal:
If you bought a Flexible ticket, changing the date or time you travel won’t cost you anything.
All other tickets
With all other tickets (except Flexible) you’ll need to pay a $20 change fee, per ticket, prior to your date of departure.
Other things you need to know:
- You can only change the date and time of your trip, not where you’re getting on the bus or your destination.
- Any advance purchase ticket has to stay within the requirements of advance purchase fares. You can’t change an advance ticket for a ticket that falls within holiday blackout periods.
- You’ll need to travel within a year of the date you bought your original ticket.
- You won’t be able to exchange your ticket for a commuter ticket or any other ticket program that doesn’t allow changes (we'll make it clear which programs these are when you book your ticket).
- You need to make the exchange request before the travel date of your original ticket.
How to exchange your ticket
You can exchange your ticket at any Greyhound station, before the date of travel.
