Passenger: "It's near the mall. It's not here. It's like a park and ride."
It's been over seven.
And yet we've yet to leave...
-Brushing our teeth (yay!)
-Experiencing a morale boost from walking in the cold for a bit
Greyhound schedulers need to realize that their schedule does not match up with reality. If every trip treats Cambridge as a rest stop, make it a rest stop.
But the terminal is kinda unique, at least.
All of our daylight hours are spent in Missouri and Kansas.
Wish us luck.
Also, its Greyhound station is closed on weekends. Great.
And you were right: Kansas is very very very boring.
Salina apparently uses the honor system...
Also, the bus's new headsign is very friendly!
Hopefully we can get some sleep...
It had to go wrong at some point.
Wish us luck.
As usual, the driver said to leave our stuff on the bus. I left my overhead bag, Nathan left his checked bag below the bus.
So we took that to Union Station, which was beautiful. It has an underground bus terminal as well as a commuter rail station.
"YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN. YOU'RE GIVING ME ANXIETY," the security guy said in all sincerity.
Oh yeah, because your "anxiety" definitely matters more than the anxiety of those who had their valuables stolen by Greyhound.
The situation can always be worse.
I'll share a photo once the internet gets better. There was a long bit with absolutely no service!
There is now a giant line of people, including us, who have to change their tickets to another bus to LA.
Apparently being on the same schedule does not guarantee through running on that schedule.
We are so mad right now.
When a high-profile businessperson experiences a problem with an airline, the airline listens; not so for the immigrant trying to take Greyhound to a new life.
"But we're the last resort! Why should we care about our paying customers?"
It's disgusting. So many of Greyhound's riders, especially outside of busy corridors, have fallen on hard times. They're treated so horribly.
