    I've traveled by bus 3 times in my life. It's fucking awful. That mode of transportation needs to be done away with. It's repulsive.

    I've had some fun experiences on that bus, but really that's nothing.

    Greyhound is about as "public transportation" as Southwest Airlines is. It's for interstate travel, not getting around the city.

    I've traveled via Greyhound well over 50 times and it's not as bad as people make it out to be. I've never seen a roach problem. The worst experience I've ever had was sitting in the back, next to the restroom, and some bitch changed a baby diaper and just threw it down the hole without wrapping it up or anything. The next few hours I wrapped a sweater around my face so I didn't have to smell the potent infant shit. Fucking rude.

    I traveled from Atlanta, Ga to Jacksonville, NC. It WAS that mad. It was enragingly bad. I'm pretty sure it gave me a greyhound bus shaped hemorrhage in my brain, that's how bad it was.

    I've done Chicago -> Cincinnati more times than I can count. Two of the most nigtastic cities in the country. Never had a problem aside from that one incident. With gas prices bumping $5 a gallon in some parts of the country, a Greyhound ticket is the de-facto least expensive method of travel with the exception of hitchhiking.

    For people to be penny-pinching, and then complain when their comfort expectations are not met, yea well :rolleyes:

    Next time pay quadruple for an airplane.

    Public transport buses? I have to take three buses, for about two hours, to get to my campus. Australia's got an aging population so I suppose that's why there's retirement villages and old people errywhere.
