For those who don’t know, the Greyhound station in Downtown Brooklyn is located basically right on top of Hoyt-Schermerhorn station on the A and C trains. Those same two trains also stop in Manhattan immediately below the Port Authority Bus Terminal where this route originates. Now, the New York City Subway has problems but, as you might imagine, a train unimpeded by vehicular traffic makes the trip an awful lot faster than the bus, and Miles’ return trip proves it.


I tried to reach out to Greyhound to get an understanding of why this route is offered but the response unsurprisingly remains indefinitely delayed. Miles suggests that it could be useful to out-of-towners making connections who might not be interested in learning how to use the subway for their first or last leg. Either way, it seems like an awful waste to me.
