Stranded Greyhound Passengers Complain Of No Money, Food


ATLANTA - Icy roads are causing headaches for stranded passengers at the Atlanta Greyhound station.

Chyina Anderson told Channel 2 Action News reporter Eric Philips that she's been stuck in Atlanta for four days and is desperately trying to get to her son.

Anderson left Texas for New York where her son is hospitalized.

"It's devastating," said Anderson, with tears in her eyes.

She was one of scores of people stranded indefinitely because of weather conditions, as some roads inside and outside of Georgia remain impassible.

Greyhound has resorted to allowing some passengers to sleep on buses as opposed to hard terminal benches.

Many of the passengers said they have run out of money.

"They said they can't give anybody a food voucher," said Melanie Gagney. "I left Phoenix with $100 to eat off of until I get to Maine. It's been three days," she said.

Greyhound staffers would not allow Channel 2 inside the bus terminal.

A company representative told Philips that Greyhound is doing its best to get passengers to their final destinations, but called the delays "indefinite."
