Greyhound Lines is a bus service that currently serves the United States, Canada, and Mexico with 123 routes and over 3,800 destinations. The company jointly operates the BoltBus, Yo! Bus and NeOn brands, as well as its own flagship Greyhound service. A fleet of 1,229 MCI and Prevost motor coaches comprises Greyhound's vehicle pool, and the fleet is run in both Express and Connect capacities.
Greyhound Express is a nonstop or few-stop service that operates inter-city at a very low cost to consumers. Tickets for routes between large metropolitan areas are often priced as low as $1. Greyhound Express buses feature reserved seating, onboard Wi-Fi, power outlets and increased legroom. Greyhound Connect operates smaller buses on short routes to transport passengers from small rural bus stations to larger inner-city stations. This allows passengers to then board Greyhound Express buses for longer cross-country journeys. Many Greyhound stations feature complementary cell-phone charging stations and cafeterias for travelers, and most are conveniently located within walking distance to Amtrak stations or public transit stops.
