    DALLAS, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Greyhound Lines, Inc. today announced
 it has expanded its priority seating initiative to more than 30 major
 cities across the United States, allowing more customers priority boarding
 privileges and the ability to reserve a specific seat on select departures
 for a nominal fee. The expansion comes just in time for the Christmas
 holidays, Greyhound's second-busiest time of the year.
     Customers pay a $5 fee at the ticket counter to select a specific seat
 and board before all non-priority passengers. Customers purchasing tickets
 through can reserve a seat at the ticket counter in their
 departure terminal. A list of all eligible cities and schedules can be
 found on by clicking on the "Priority Seating" banner.
     "We continued to see strong customer response since the priority
 seating concept was first introduced on Nov. 12, so we wanted to expand to
 more markets as quickly as possible," said Dave Leach, president and chief
 executive officer, Greyhound Lines, Inc. "Now customers have more
 opportunities in dozens of locations to have first choice and a guaranteed
 seat on many of our schedules."
     Reserved seating is sold one way and in select cities on specific
 schedules. It is only valid on the exact date and schedule for which
 customers have booked their trip. Customers have the option of purchasing
 reserved seating from 30 days in advance to 45 minutes prior to departure,
 but must be present at the gate no fewer than 20 minutes before departure.
     For more information on priority seating or eligible schedules, please
 call your local terminal or consult a Greyhound ticket agent at the ticket
