I don't know if it is still done, but decades ago anyone could ship a package via Greyhound bus lines. Probably Trailways too, but my first hand experience was with Greyhound.

You still had to drive to the bus station and walk into the shipping department, much like going into a post office or UPS store. Except the package drop off and pick up points were few and far between for bus companies.

If I remember correctly, it was really suited for moving large packages that exceeded the size UPS or FedEx was willing to handle back then. But, still small enough to fit in the luggage compartments under the seating section of a bus.
