Drivers need to enforce no loud conversations on the bus. I sat quietly working on the bus. However, there was a passenger with my same race speaking loudly for the entire trip. When we arrived in Philly, the driver asked me if I was the one speaking loudly on my phone for entire trip. I told him, “no, it was not me.” It was offensive for him to assume it was simply because I was black and the other person speaking loudly was black. If he had a problem with the other passenger speaking loudly, he should have said so in the moment, en route.This was actually offensive since he has the authority to tell passengers to stop speaking loudly. Do better, Peter Pan.
From start to finish, booking my trip was easy. The bus always boarded before departure time. The ride is very smooth and relaxing. Getting to your destination has never been quicker. I was once an avid greyhound passenger, after riding Peter pan one time, I was addicted to the drug of Peter pan.
