Go Greyhound.

Do you want a quick way to know if the bar you are drinking at is a respectable establishment?

Check if the pint glasses have Greyhound Bus advertisements on them. In case you are drinking your beer late at night on a weekday and think “I need to get out of town, now. By bus.”

I also want it noted that the advertisement is not a sticker; the ad is painted on. From the bar I was in, I can only assume the marketers hit their “target market” right in the bullseye.

  1. As a quite young person (recent college graduate) I rode by Greyhound bus from Tucson, Arizona to Boston, Massachusetts. It was quite a trip.

    If the US standard of living is inevitably fated to decline – assuming we pay off debts rather than putting even more stuff on the tab – Greyhound travel may become more familiar to the middle class.

    Who knows if it’s good or bad?

    I remember, and this was in like 2003 or so, when airline tickets were cheap, flying to St. Louis from Chicago. It was only marginally more expensive than taking Greyhound there. I told a friend about this, and wondered who would essentially pay extra to take Greyhound in time/comfort – he told me that “You don’t need an ID to buy a ticket or get on a Greyhound.”

    I’m not sure if that is true, or is true anymore, but to this day I like the idea that a large number of Greyhound travelers are those paying for the convenience of not having to produce ID or having a subpoenable electronic record kept of their travels. Markets!
