Screw Greyhound. When I was younger, dumber, and didnít properly value my time and sanity i used to take greyhound from nyc to AC regularly. During the off season the trips were USUALLY ok. Drivers were largely on time, and the busses werenít usually that packed so the trip was tolerable enough. During summer weekends though the experience was almost always horrendous. Countless cancelled trips, multiple 2+ hour delays, and tons of sweaty and irritated people to deal with. Often a bus would just never show up and no explination would be given. And donít get me started on break downs. Iíve personally been on 5 bus break downs that resulted in 3+ hour delays. Once we broke down right outside the Lincoln tunnel and it took them two hours to send a new bus to pick us up. People were pouring out on to the highway to get Uberís to drive them. Pathetic.

Greyhound is a pos company and deserves bankruptcy. Do not patronize them. Take NJ transit bus, itís only 10 min longer trip (makes one other stop) and the drivers are better, class of rider better, and almost always on time/technically reliable. Only downside is you donít get the stupid free play coupon but for me the peace of mind and exponentially better experience is worth more to me than 20$ of EV and hundreds of hours of wasted time. F Greyhound, seriously. The company has taken years off me life and has helped make me a more bitter person than i should be.

Maybe Iím just poor, but $50/hr is the equivalent to a $104k salary.



You are right, but when you only get it once a week it is only $200. $200 is a lot of money but when one has time constraints they must weigh the benefits of $200 against the four hours of time they would be losing. If I was poor, I would go every week.
Living longer does not always infer +EV

That's why we have henchmen, minions and underlings.
I'd try and squeeze two roundtrips a day out of them.



I dont know what homeless people you got working for you but if I was to do a bus hustle the amount i paid them would leave no profit for me

Not to mention anyone willing to work that low probably is skimming off the top

That type of hustle is a do-it-yourselfer unfortunately

I laid out the entire plan. The clients pay, not you. Little to no overhead.

Maybe managing haunted houses would be more practical.
