Kalifornia got busted for this a few years back, they were giving all of their transients one way tickets to Utah and Arizona.

None of the 10 state mental health agencies contacted by The Bee said that placing a psychiatric patient on a bus without support would be permissible. And none recalled being contacted by Rawson-Neal to make arrangements for a patient coming from Nevada.

So is it the casinos that are busing these people out of state? You know, to get them off their property for good?
The article seems to be carefully avoiding any mention of this.

CSB - my one and only time riding Greyhound was when I attended a UF football game in Gainesville with some friends.  I think the Gators played San Jose State or something.  Having earned a couple of degrees from FSU, wasn't there for the football really, just there to hang out with my friends.  Anyway, wound up getting drunk as hell, calling 411, finding the address of the Greyhound station, walking there from the stadium, and taking a Greyhound to Tallahassee.  I lived in St. Pete at the time.  I passed out, woke up around Perry thinking "this is one of the dumbest things I've ever done."  Luckily, it was Labor Day weekend and some friends from St. Pete were in Tallahassee for the FSU game.  They picked me up from the bus station (which I learned as I waited out in front of it is also a pickup point for male prostitutes).  We hung out all weekend and they took me home.  Good times.

The last time I rode a Greyhound bus, one of the extended stops it made for refueling and cleanout was in Crescent City CA. What got on that bus after it returned to the stop was about a dozen lunatics that had just been released from Pelican Bay. With the exception of one kid, the rest were complete maniacs who should have been kept locked up for life and probably heavily medicated. One guy in his late 20s with boots and swastikas tattooed all over his head spent the entire ride into San Jose boxing the air in front of his face with his buddies that sat next to him and pacing up and down the aisle ranting about how "nobody farks with me, I fark you up biatch." And raving about how he was going to "fark me some pussy as soon as I get home."

Yeah, it was an interesting ride. I'm glad I had plenty of weed and a fat book on that trip.

Sometimes I travel to Boston (from NYC) for my job, and not being a fan of long drives, I thought to save a few bucks by taking the bus. I figured I could read, get some work done, maybe enjoy a nap. HUGE mistake.

The entire time I was crammed into a tiny seat, the wifi wasn't working, the obese monster next to me kept spilling into my space, it stank, and there was some weirdo behind me who kept yammering nonsense the entire time. So yeah, you save money, but it's just not worth it.

Either take Amtrack or listen to documentaries streaming off your phone while you drive. Those bus trips are cheap for a reason.

Nevadas finally catching on?  San Francisco used to do this with their homeless "hey heres a bus ticket to anywhere but here, see-ya!"

1999 I chose to ride Greyhound from (blank) to Las Vegas to meet a pal halfway and buy his classic ride. Thought I'd save some money by not flying.

Holy shiat. Everybody but me and the driver was recently parolled from either a state penitentiary or federal facility. I was riding for 700 miles in what amounted to an informal prisoner transport.

At the Las Vegas bus terminal they had NFL-sized bull guards working a yellow line with cattle prods to keep people in line who were getting luggage out from under the bus. Mean bastids.

I came to New Mexico via Greyhound from Austin, Texas. Your argument is invalid.

Harden the fark up. Greyhound isn't so bad if you're not a total pussy. I've ridden them dozens of times.

YMMV though...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Tim_McLean

I used to bethreatened by a crazy person on a regular basis, but I divorced her.

I'd include something insightful about bussing crazy people around but this is fark, no need for high expectations.

It's kinda sad actually. Nevada has nowhere that will take someone who is mentally ill and unable to care for themselves. It's a fact. They ship some of the harder cases to my former employer, and good on them for taking them. It's horrible.... if you lived in Nevada all your life, become severely demented and unable to be independent, they will just ship you from your home state.

Greyhound bus stations are notoriously sketchy places. Sacto and oakland for sure.

Nasty, smelly people. I used to take it from college home on the wkends, awful experiences. One enormously obese guy sat next to me for hours. I kept waiting for my nose to adjust to his smell, it never did :(

I was in kern county to pick up a guy from prison once. Went to the greyhound stn, the lady at the front desk said 12 jails n prisons in that county sent off prisoners through them. He didn't get out that day, but a few days later they gave him 100 bux, and told him to get out of town asap, take the next bus, or they'd arrest him again.

Sadly, with mental health cuts, more and more mentally ill people end up in the prison system.

My goal is to see a baseball game at every AAA stadium, and make the trip by Greyhound bus.

They used to have a 30 day "All you can ride pass", but that's been discountinued.

Mebbe if I get the schedule and the time to do it ironed out, perhaps Greyhound will 'help' a bit?

//The sights I'll see!
