Greyhound Bus Student Travel Discounts

Get a Greyound Bus Student Discount With a Student Advantage Card

By

Get a Greyhound bus student travel discount with Greyhound's Student Discount Program: 15% off any ticket and 50% off shipping packages through the Greyhound bus line (beats air and ground delivery service prices, though not always times).

How to Get a Greyhound Bus Student Travel Discount

To get the Greyhound bus student travel deals, get a Student Advantage Card - the card's discounts extend beyond Greyhound specials to plenty of places where you may spend money anyway, like Footlocker, Loew's Cineplex movie theaters, Tower Records, Timberland and on and on.

You can get the card at any Greyhound bus station or fill out the form and buy the Student Advantage Card online. Use the Greyhound student travel discount promotional code: GRY48L9002.

Greyhound Discounts on Companion Fares

Greyhound also offers a 50% off ticket to a companion with whom you're traveling (or you can be the companion to a full fare traveler) -- several restrictions apply, and you may not be able to combine it with your Student Advantage card discount from Greyhound. Check it out (and while you're looking at companion discounts, look into Amtrak's free fare for college visits):

    Riding the Bus

    Sit back and let someone else do the driving. While you're packing for a bus trip, remember a few goodies to make your trip twice as fun:

    • Bring a decent sized travel shoulder bag or small backpack instead of a purse (or nothing) on board with you -- you can carry food, water, guidebooks, journal, camera, cell phone... everything you need to stay entertained and busy.

    Enjoy the bus trip!

    When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then...no yesterdays on the road.
