Next year me and my Girlfriend are planning a month long trip around the US, I imagine from New York to San Fransisco, by greyhound bus.
We're from the UK and have heard good things about this as a cheap way of covering a lot of miles, but we're unsure about how reliable, comfortable the buses are etc. I kind of see it as a good alternative to driving as it seems a whole lot cheaper, the monthly pass is $600ish, and I understand it can be redeemed whenever you like; i.e. we could stay in one place as long as we like. We're planning to stay in cheap hostels or motels.
I was just wondering if anyone has had any problems with these buses and whether they can think of any reasons not to do it or any difficulties we're likely to encounter!
Will appreciate any feedback!
