Description

It is hard to imagine an America without the Greyhound Bus. It is an institution woven into the fabric of the nation. It has provided the mobility that American’s have always treasured. When personal transportation was in its infancy and car ownership limited, Greyhound provided fast, reliable, safe, and economical local and regional transportation for the masses. Increasingly, the company grew in size and scope, achieving the goal of its founders—to develop a nationwide system of transportation. Profusely illustrated with period advertisements, travel brochures, post cards, and archival photographs of depots and buses, this history of the Greyhound Bus Lines offers a unique journey through America’s physical and cultural landscape. Readers can accept this invitation from Greyhound: “There is a graceful Greyhound coach waiting to carry you over Roads of Romance…. Adventure seems to lurk around every corner as you speed along in the sturdy, blue and white Greyhound bus. All the color and romance, all the scenic and historic interest of this American Wonderland are yours to enjoy when you go the Greyhound way.”
