    I know it is a cheap way to travel, but every time I am here, I feel like I need a shower.

    Lines are unorganized- bus station needs to be renovated. Greyhound has got to learn to DO BETTER!

    Don't eat at the little restaurant place. Cashiers are miserable and foods bad.

    A bit seedy to say the least , but I stay optimistic.

    Bathrooms on the bus may actually be nicer than the ones in the terminal

    Disgusting bathroom.

    Bring hand sanitizer and be prepared to stand a while (no seats to sit on)

    The new express buses are nice very similar to boltbus. Other than that this place sucks. It smells like piss and is just down right depressing

    Yasmeen W. · September 3, 2011
  • Blake P.

    It smells like kitty litter in here... why?

    Blake P. · June 22, 2011

    This place is very scary for dc you would think it'd be much nicer beware of the people here some nasty people are here yuck

    No one from Greyhound knows what they are doing. Take a plane or just drive

    If you're bored. Attempt to beat my Ms. Pac Man score. You can't.

    On May 4, 1961, the CORE Freedom Ride departs Washington. Following several days of nonviolence training, 13 Freedom Riders and three journalists begin the journey on two separate buses.

    Find your gate/line based on destination--you don't have to look for a gate # based on bus number or departure time like train and airport terminals.

  • Miguel A.

    Skip the cab, take an Uber, 1st class sedan car service. Download the app on your smartphone, or go 2, and use invite code "yiy5a" to save $10 off your 1st ride.

  • Xinia G.

    Not the greatest of stations but the quality (and smell!) of the buses has vastly improved. Plus, it's been cheaper (and more reliable) than megabus or bolt bus as of late.

    Xinia G. · January 13, 2012
  • Tatyana S.

    Don't forget to check in your luggage! Otherwise you'll need to come back to the registration desk...

    Greyhound is the devil.

    Greyhound Lucky Streak to Atlantic City is around $30 each way, but you get a $25 casino voucher if you drop off at one of the casinos. Makes for a decent deal if you are into that.

    Customer service at this location bites. This is probably why I haven't been on a bus since HiS.

    Moved to Union Station where the Mega Buses are located.

    So long and farewell! Going home and coming back to DC used to be an adventure, now alas good Greyhound Station, your absence marks NoMa's full ascent and the wiping away of Old NE DC continues.

    Daniel L. · November 1, 2012
  • Tanja

    They moved to Union Station! Go through the main entrance, through food court and follow the signs to the buses (escalator up to mezzanine level).

    Tanja · September 28, 2012
  • Brian K.

    Place is dirty. Okay customer service, but hundreds of dollars cheaper than taking Amtrak

    Brian K. · September 13, 2012
  • Brigette K.

    Women's bathrooms are DISGUSTING

    Brigette K. · September 9, 2012
  • Brandi R.

    Say a prayer before boarding. Our bus driver hit another bus, a wall and a car all before leaving the parking lot. Choose life, ride something else

    Brandi R. · September 4, 2012

    The bus driver is cuteeeeee

    Wait in line to get non-carryon luggage checked even if you use the kiosk to print online tickets.

    Will W. · August 17, 2012
  • Chris V.

    You bus ride might be fine, but once you get off run through here. This is a disgusting station. Smells and everything is dirty. Employees seem angry. Don't spend 5 min in here & AVOID THE BATHROOMS.

    Chris V. · August 14, 2012
  • Chris V.

    Most of the busses are FREE Wi-Fi ZONES. Networks = "Greyhound Free WiFi" or "Peter Pan Free WiFi". No password.

    Chris V. · August 14, 2012
  • Ayla E.

    Try to avoid the restrooms! Believe me, you don't want to be in there, I even prefer going on the bus!

    This place isn't as bad as most of these people say...Maybe I just caught it on a good day...who knows. But I've seen MUCH worse.

    Tony W. · May 28, 2012
  • Perce K.

    You should lie about where you come from if you find yourself here. If you dress good and say your from NYC, the amount of creeps multiply.

    Perce K. · May 26, 2012
  • Stephenie B.

    There is no priority seating/bigger seats for express passengers. I paid $54 round trip from DC to NC. 6-7 hr trip. I stop in VA

    This chick working in the food court is swinging that cheap wig around with no hairnet on! Where's the health department when you need them?!?

    Sit in the Express Lounge while waiting on your standing in line.

    Nobody here has a bearable odor. Ever.

    MegaBus is faster. It's only a 3 hr ride from Philly to DC. Greyhound "EXPRESS" is a 4 hr ride... Smh. Get it together!

    Officer Brownie · March 9, 2012
  • Officer Brownie

    This fucking "café" is the worst!! Slow ass workers, rude as fuck, can't multi task for shit. This is disgraceful. Eat before you get here or just wait until you get to your next destination.
