NallTWD: Speaking as a greater Bostonian, my shocked face, let me show it to you.
soopey: I've taken the Fung Wah bus to NYC a couple times. It's really not that bad. All you need to do is make sure your life insurance policy is up to date, bring a book, ,ring some headphones, and don't make eye contact with any other the other passengers lest you get shived.

Znuh: Things that have happened to me on Greyhound, and this was all on the same trip. 100% true, no BS.(CSB deleted for purposes of saving electrons. Please, think of the electrons.)
Great Porn Dragon: Znuh: Things that have happened to me on Greyhound, and this was all on the same trip. 100% true, no BS.(CSB deleted for purposes of saving electrons. Please, think of the electrons.)And now I figure that Greyhound trips in the Midwest are nice and calm in comparison, with the main risks being their location in the ghetto and an inordinate number of Amish. :D(Seriously, Amish tend to take Amtrak en masse where it's available and Greyhound where it isn't. In general they aren't the ax-murdery type, though. :D)Have been tempted to do Megabus rather than the plane next time I want to do a trip up towards Indy or Chicago, the main stumbling block being a) I haven't seen any trip reports re Megabus and b) getting up at ass-thirty so I don't arrive in Chicago or Indy at ass-thirty :D(No crazy Chinese dragon-line bus lines here, though. I really think that must be a Northeast thing, and have heard more than a few horror stories regarding them...as it is, Megabus is just as cheap around here if you time ticket purchase right, and there is some concept of bus maintenance.)
wooden_badger: And the Feds have pulled Fung Wah's license to operate.Toodle-oo
poot_rootbeer: By Monday you'll be able to go to Chinatown and catch a "Fong Weh" bus.
