    The way I understand it happened the driver was fired, but not for this incident. Hopefully this driver learned an important lesson.

    To the OP, USA Truck today is in much better shape than they were many years ago. There has been almost a 100% turnover of their company officers over the last few years, and the company is better off today for it. Good luck!

    There has been a lot of debate about that incident. It seems that this Flight Attendant was putting her hands on the passenger over her noncompliance about properly wearing a mask. The passenger was arrested and most likely will face federal charges. Then there was an incident at the Miami Airport where about 8 or 10 women got into a melee. Honestly, you are no safer on the greydog! I am planning a trip for early next year. This (redacted) keeps on happening I might just do some facetime.

    Good Luck @Kingty9183 ! As was mentioned, the first year will likely blow goats, but tough it out and things get better !

    My bus smelled like BO and alcohol. Even when I first boarded at 7AM.

    One Greyhound ride is enough for a lifetime. Never again.

    First time I visited USA was xmas1988. After a week in Georgia ( flew down there from NYC to see if southern hospitality really existed) I took the greyhound back to NY because it seemed a good idea, plane ticket 60$ 2 hrs v 40$ bus 24hr trip. I've been a lot of places and lived a fairly unusual life but I still remember that experience with horror. It was a look into a different world ! Then 5 days in pre Guliani NY to really freak me out. That bus terminal in NY was like something out of he'll.

    I remember a greydog ride from hell! I had just delivered a repo to a dealer and was headed home. I was forced to take the bus from Jackson Mississippi to Atlanta Georgia. The bus smelled and there were passengers committing acts of parentage in the back. When we stopped at the Montogomery station I had enough and rented a car. Right now outside of maybe Amtrak and riding First/Business Class on an airline there is no real way to use public transportation and avoid trash! << Not said lightly.

    Speaking of amtrak, they really cleaned up there act. I remember as a kid in the late 80's to early 90's it seems like an amtrak train would derail everytime it left a station.

    I never rode on one because of the reputation they had back then. But the only derails I hear about these days ar NS or CSX freight trains.
