Greyhound bus stops are surprisingly difficult to find. Is there a database of them?

Requirements:

  • Bus stop name
  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • Lines that stop there, or adjacent stops.

I am interested in all of their stops, not only those in the USA (datasets for USA stops are better than nothing, though).

All I could find is this difficult-to-reuse map and this painful locator.

    @philshem - that Wikipedia page only has about 2 dozen locations. Greyhound's site says they have 3100 stops, some of which will handle ticketing and package express. – Andrew - OpenGeoCode Mar 5 '15 at 17:48
  • It seems to me that we should find a why to contact Greyhound corporate and have them make the location information 'dataset friendly' for mobile application developers. – Andrew - OpenGeoCode Mar 5 '15 at 17:49

    From personal experience, I can assure you that that difficult-to-reuse map is incomplete. I've been on plenty of Greyhound-affiliated buses not shown on that map. – gerrit Mar 5 '15 at 19:03

i think this is a good start, but i can't find who authored it. i would take the kml from this map and upload it to geojson.io where you can fiddle and convert it more.

edit:
the wayback machine has what you want albeit a year old. i only checked texas, so maybe i'm wrong. go here and then swap out state two letter digits.

also there's this but you'll have to filter out mexico:

  • Including Mexico information is OK, actually I am interested in all of their destinations, and only said "USA+Canada" to point out it is not USA-only. – Nicolas Raoul Mar 6 '15 at 1:43
