I agree with the others that bus depots vary and local rules/customs apply.
  • In general you will be required to box your bike, and you should bring your own box.
  • Now a days you'll probably have to pay an extra $10-$15 dollars for the bike, at least that's been my experience.
  • Being friendly and courteous (without being annoying) to all the workers will get you a long way.
  • Most of the time you'll be the one handling the bike, which is a good thing.
  • Show the bus driver the same respect you would the captain of a plane or ship. After all, they have the same underlying responsibility.

My last bus travel was 2012, mixed carriers (including Greyhound), Bangor-Boston-NYC. The experience was a positive one.
