Thread: Travelling by Greyhound bus

    Travelling by Greyhound bus

    Has anyone ever travelled on Greyhound in a power chair?
    I am thinking about making an 8 hour trip on Greyhound and I am wondering a few things
    Is the wheelchair seating area big enough to tilt my chair?
    Will they let me off at rest stops to use the bathroom and will the bathrooms be accessible?
    Will I be allowed to travel in my power chair and bring a manual chair? The manual will be new - what are the chances it will get damaged?
    I would be travelling from Toronto to Cinncinnati.

    Thanks
