People tend to check in during these times:
Traveling with Greyhound? Make sure you check-in with us on Foursquare!
Give friendly reminders of what time it is.
Bring a travel pillow!
Don't forget you'll need to check in your luggage for the Greyhound buses. First bag is free, second is $10.
If you take the Valley Retriever, buy your tickets on the Amtrak website and pick them up at Union Station. They're about $4 cheaper than Greyhound, and Greyhound doesn't offer them online.
Jamie, the main character in the book Punkzilla by Adam Rapp, starts his cross country trip to Memphis at this Portland Greyhound Bus Terminal.
Very sketchy area, procede with caution.
Bring hand sanitizer and earphones. You'll be hit up for change and smokes if you make eye contact. Outlets are scattered against walls. Seating is 1st come 1st serve, even if you buy in advance.
First bag is free and the second is now $15. The guy behind the will call counter is really grumpy and kinda rude!
Be careful of the crack heads
The security guard is pretty amazing but the desk clerk can be jerky. Not bad though. Lots of nice people here in Portland.
