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 www.greyhound.com can reserve a seat at the ticket counter in their
departure terminal. A list of all eligible cities and schedules can be
found on www.greyhound.com 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
