    And you wonder why the people who work for the bus companies treat you like crap when you're riding their buses. Lots of crazies on the buses. That's why the better companies rent a car for you to get to their orientation. One company I worked for paid for a plane ticket, which was nice, but flying isn't a whole lot better than riding the bus these days.

    (Pro tip: if you have a TWIC card, you can skip the long lines to get through security and go through what is basically the employee entrance. They even smile at you and call you by name because you're one of them. Your fingerprints are on file.)

    I had a truck break down in Tx once and it was going to be in the shop for a few days, so I caught a greyhound and rode less than a hundred miles, before I got of and hitch hiked. lol

    Aw, come on, we all know bus travel is the lowest form of transportation, attracting only the finest individuals of our society, and with a name like that ( the "John Smith" of hispanics) I don't think he is from this society.
    FlaSwampRat and bzinger Thank this.

    I spent almost 20 years in the bus business and I could relate some horror stories. Lost a dear friend to a crazy person. He left Richmond, Va going to Raleigh, NC. Between Richmond and Petersburg, this man came up the isle, stabbed the driver, the driver got the bus off 1-95 before he died and the person jumped out of the bus and ran across 95 and was run over and killed by a car.

    Had another friend going up u.s. 13 on the Eastern Shore. @ T's Corner , Va it was around 11 pm, 3 men got on the bus, it was a Eagle bus and the driver kindly sits down in a Eagle. The 3 men started stabbing the driver with ball point pens. Now they had done picked the wrong person, he finally got himself out of the drive's seat and the 3 men ran. The 3 were caught and served time. But this driver lived on the Shore in Exmore, Va and he hunted each man down after they got out of jail. When he got thru with each one, they could do nothing but rock on the front porch. He made vegetables out of each one.

    I rode the overnight crackhound from Joplin mo to Omaha in 2011 when 29 was closed for flooding so half the trip was 2 lane roads .....that driver was nuts passing slower traffic with slim spacing and taking curve like it was a nascar race .
    Never again !
