    Greyhound

    by RJ1967 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The first time I was ever at the Los Angeles Greyhound station was August 2003. I prepaid for my ticket at home in Colorado and was told to pick it up at the LA station an hour before departure. I was glad to see a seperate line for will call, as I was a bit late and the regular line had abt 10 ppl in it.

    As for the station itself - it was a DUMP. By far the worst one I have been to (I have been to abt 10 stations in Southwestern US.) I highly recommend you NEVER take you eye off your bag. The people in the station were abt as dodgy as the station itself.

    *If you are going to/from Union Station (where the metro rail and Amtrak are) you'll need to take a cab. I took the LAX shuttle between the two for $7.

    LA's Main Greyhound Bus Terminal

    by atufft Written Mar 10, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Greyhound doesn't have the best of reputations, and I was led to believe that the main LA terminal at 1716 E 7th Street, could be among the worst for being a place of bums and winos. The location of the terminal, just off I-5 and not far from Japantown, is actually pretty good, although I wouldn't spent time in this particular area after dark. The terminal garages and passenger service areas are probably the biggest on the west coast of the USA, and have been impressively redesigned to include surprisingly clean facilities for food concessions, bathrooms, and ticket counters. Unlike my boarding experience in Stockton earlier in the day, boarding a bus in LA means having TSA security grope through your carry-on baggage and wave a wand over your body. For the best price break on Greyhound, go online and make your ticket purchase at least 7 days in advance.
