Greyhound buses, German ghosts of a golden age.
Greyhound buses, emblematic of a bygone era in American travel, have left an indelible mark on the collective imagination, gracing the frames of classic films and the pages of literary works. In this article, Joanna Pocock follows in the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir as she crosses the country by bus, only to encounter a transport network that's now a mere spectre of its former glory.
Reading this, I was surprised to learn that Greyhound now belongs to cheap German bus company Flixbus. That's quite a fall.
