Leave the driving to “bus”

Source: dailymail.co.uk

The title of this post is a pun variation of the famous advertising slogan used by Greyhound Bus Lines for many years – “Leave the driving to us.”

Below is a list of the Top 10 busiest bus (or coach in the UK) terminals in the United States and Canada as ranked by Greyhound and based on passenger volume in 2010. Most of those cities listed are not a huge surprise other than the fact that Chicago did not make the Top 10. In addition, Ottawa does rank much higher than I would have ever imagined, though being the national capital of Canada may have something to do with its position.

Rank Terminal
1 New York, NY, USA
2 Toronto, ON, Canada
3 Atlantic City, NJ, USA
4 Ottawa, ON, Canada
5 Los Angeles, CA, USA
6 Philadelphia, PA, USA
7 Washington DC, USA
8 Boston, MA, USA
9 Houston, TX, USA
10 Montreal, QB, Canada

    I’ve used Illini Swallow (don’t even know if they operate under that name now…) in Indiana and Illinois “years ago”, and have used Greyhound in the last few years; was satisfied with the level of service, but not impressed with the trimming of routes since Greyhound and Trailways consolidated (Greyhound absorbing Trailways)…will still use the “bus” if needed, though, including local public transit…
