what to wear when traveling on bus

Traveling on bus can be a daunting task. Don’t expect to be welcomed with the same attributes you’d find from other customer service agents in different modes of transportation.

Cordiality you’ll find dying in the corner next to a weakening politeness as soon as you walk into a Greyhound station. Indifference and blank stares will greet you without deterring from their nature. The man behind the counter will ask the necessary questions needed to gain his minimum wage and to print out your ticket. The awaiting passengers can quite possibly be an affront to your notion of what a curious traveler may be.

Welcome to the bus station. Where you are thrown in a pit where incivility rules. And to play the part you must dress the part. Find our best apparel to wear when traveling on a long-ass bus ride.

A hoodie is ideal for concealment and warmth. You’ll especially need it for the long bus ride; all drivers blast their AC so all passengers will be pacified from cold temperatures. Also, by throwing the hoodie over your head you’ll feign sleep so that person talking to herself will just do that, talk to herself.

Comfy T

Mynted T-Shirt

A comfortable, well-designed t-shirt is ideal on long trips. The one thing you’d want to feel amidst sticky seats and mildewy cushions is a good quality hand-woven cotton tee. The graphic is ideal as it allows quality conversation with someone that may share your same interest, and because the character on the tee is sort-of a threatening figure this will keep the crazies away.
