Roaches invade NYC bound Greyhound bus

Recommended Posts

An unspecified number of roaches hitched a ride on a Greyhound bus to try to make a brand new start of it in old New York. Upon discovering the unfortunate infestation, the driver pulled over and radioed for another bus.

 

The Greyhound bus was carrying 48 people, according to NBC New York. It originated in Atlantic City. Timothy Stokes, spokesperson for Greyhound, said, "Once the driver became aware of the situation, the driver followed procedures by pulling the bus over to a safe location and notifying our dispatch office."

 

A passenger called WABC-TV and said roaches were crawling onto seats, along windows and into people's hair. Passengers took photos of the roaches and of passengers standing on the side of the road afterward. Greyhound has apologized for the incident and issued refunds to the affected passengers (vermin not included).

 

In 2011, AirTran passengers alleged that roaches crawled from air vents and overhead bins during a flight from Charlotte to Houston.

Excluding the vermin...  :lol:  I have to say... I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often because they don't clean those friggin' buses.  They should have a fumigation procedure in place.

This is hilarious...it's rare to see roaches on NYC buses although they have the roach baits placed on just in case. Guess there are other agencies who have problems worse than ours.

Too bad Greyhound is the only national coast-coast Intercity bus company. With that said, it's great that their other options in certain areas including the northeast. Hell if possible I even take Greyhound-owned Bolt Bus if I travel say to Washington DC or Philly from NYC.

Give it time and CoachUSA/Megabus will cover most of the country soon as they keep expanding line haul service west and south parts of the country.

It is relatively harder to keep intercity coaches free of those pests.  First of all, the passengers bring on lots of food at rest stops enroute, and then leave remains in seats, overhead bins, etc. when they get off.  Secondly, passengers may inadvertantly bring aboard these pests hidden in their baggage.  Once they get infested, its difficult to eradicate them from all the hidden hiding places. 

I would say that given the circumstances, Greyhound responded in a most reasonable manner.....and I am sure that coach will receive a most thorough decontamination.......
