I used Greyhound for the first time this summer when I did my Quebec tour. no hassle with travel on Greyhound and no extra charge for the bike, However getting a bike box from a Greyhound agent was a hassle. Greyhound is like a franchise ,it a loose collection of regional carriers that operate under the Greyhound name and each does things slightly different.The regional carrier I had to use supplies no Bicycle boxes. For your own sanity just get a bike box from a bicycle shop( it will be the correct size). Greyhound will not handle the bike, you have to lift it in and out of the cargo hold on your own. The other caveat is that if the cargo hold is full you may have to wait for another bus even if you had reservations.so make sure you are at the front of the boarding line if you are traveling during a holiday or on a busy route.
