I see a few folks posting here about Greyhound and am hoping that I can get some help.
I am thinking of taking the Greyhound from New York to Cincinnati in a few days.
I use a cane but can get around ok.
I haven't been on a bus in *FOREVER* and I am honestly only looking it as an option because the train is just too expensive for a quick trip.
I am looking at taking the 3:15 am bus out of the Port Authority which gets into Cincy around 7:30 p.m. same day. I have never been to taken the bus out of New york, but this schedule looks the most directly *AND* only has one transfer in Columbus.
So here are my goofy questions...
1. Is is safe to walk to Port Authority in the wee small hours of the morning? I was thinking of coming down earlier in the day and crashing at a cheap hotel before beginning my trip. I see a few hotels a few blocks away which wouldn't be a big deal in the broad day light but not sure about 1 or 2 a.m.
2. In looking at the Port Authority website, it says that bus passengers should enter through the North Wing. Would anyone know what street that is on?
3. I am hoping that I could get on first due to my disability and sit in the front so I don't have crawl over people. How big are the seats? Would it be possible to buy an extra seat so I can scoot my leg out if I needed to?
4. This route looks like it stops about every two hours. Do the buses ever skip stops if they don't have any passengers?
