If you wish to change your travel plans, you may have a ticket reissued for another
schedule however, the request must be made prior to original schedule travel date (subject to availability).

Please arrive at the terminal at least 30 minutes before departure. If you have purchased your
ticket online, please bring your photo I.D. and your Print at Home ticket or Will Call confirmation
number. Boarding generally begins 15 to 30 minutes before departure. Customers traveling by Greyhound
Express should arrive at pick up point a minimum of 15 minutes before departure. When picking up
passengers en route (such as at a rest stop), continuing passengers who de-boarded at the rest stop
are given priority to re-board.
Greyhound buses travel around the clock, so you can travel by day and enjoy the scenery through wide
panoramic windows. Or, select a night service, and relax in a reclining seat with reduced interior lighting.
Most buses make intermediate stops every few hours, and meal stops en route, be sure to ask your ticket
agent about our express schedules, which are available on select routes.
All schedule times are based on local time zones.

In addition, non-US residents require proof of means of departure from the US. These are the required
criteria for travel. Failure to present the aforementioned may result in refusal of transport.

South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea (including ferries), will be required to

The permanent resident card (PR card) is mandatory for permanent residents wishing to
re-enter Canada aboard any commercial carrier (airplane, boat, train or bus). A permanent resident
is someone who has been allowed to enter Canada as an immigrant but who has not become a Canadian citizen.
The PR card replaces the paper IMM 1000 Record of Landing document and is the official proof-of-status
document for permanent residents. The fraud-resistant card provides cardholders with secure, convenient
proof of their permanent resident status when re-entering Canada. Because it is highly resistant to
tampering and illegal duplication, and offers transportation officials a more effective means of identifying
people with permanent resident status in Canada, the PR card will help combat illegal entry into Canada.
Existing permanent residents must be in Canada to apply for the PR card. Application and information kits
are available on Citizenship and Immigration Canada's website at
Canadian permanent residents presently located outside Canada, who do not have a PR card and who will be
returning to Canada on or after December 31, 2003, should visit a Canadian visa office to obtain a
limited-use travel document at a cost of $50.
