go a day early,leave yourself a backup plan (e.g. greyhound if megabus cancels) but for me, when one cancelled, both did, so i had to set up a new screening date. you are right about fate worse than death.
Greyhound doesn't tell you what's going on. At least Megabus will offer you a refund. Greyhound agents, meanwhile, have sold me tickets for busses that they knew were cancelled. Also, if one of your busses on Greyhound is seriously delayed, like due to engine failure, they won't let you get on another bus to the same destination unless you pay that $20 fee. I've seen them let busses leave that were half-empty while an entire busload of people from an earlier schedule are left waiting in the station for a replacement bus to arrive. Given a choice, the only reason I would pick Greyhound over Megabus is because Greyhound has stations and Megabus drops you off in an unsheltered parking lot, which, when combined with the fact that Megabus tends to run less busses, makes Greyhound slightly more attractive. If there's inclement weather, I'll tend to use Greyhound, but with a schedule to get me there MORE THAN four hours in advance, then I hang out in the station and take a nap until it's time to head out to the clinic. That being said, there have been times when I've chosen the Megabus for its $5 fare, and then wandered around an empty city for 7 hours until daybreak, trying to keep warm while waiting for the clinic to . No regrets there.
To add on to my last post, of course, there are always those nice employees of Greyhound who'll let me get on without paying that schedule change fee, or who will point me towards which manager to complain to, but, policy-wise, Megabus is sooo much better.

Chances are if Megabus is delayed or cancelled due to weather, Greyhound will be as well. The only difference is on Megabus, you have a tent to stand under and at a Greyhound station, at least your inside. Depending on where you are going and the fare, consider ing a ticket on each.
