Greyhound service is terrible, but they can get away with it because they're the cheapest way to get from one side of the country to the other. It's a 4 day ride, the seats won't recline, it smells like someone crapped in their pants, the terminals are scary, and your luggage will get lost, but you save a few hundred over the next cheapest option.

(I did toronto to vancouver and back a couple years ago. It's 8 days you won't soon forget!)

If you're going coast to coast in the US with advanced notice, a plane ticket can often be cheaper.

Might be something to do with lots of luggage? I'd imagine this would be a lot cheaper on a bus than on a plane?
