Yet, despite this vast route mileage, bus depots aro spotted with amazing frequency, along Greyhound Uavelways. In Dixie, for example, where Greyhound operates 3,400 route miles, there are Greyhound depots on the average of one to every 10 miles of route. Thus, hundreds of thousands of persons are only a mile or two, or even less, from their nearest Greyhound station. To you, as a traveler, that means convenience in travel service not equalled by any other transportation company. • This fact, coupled with Greyhound's frequent, carefully-timed departures, result in the superior kind of service that has made Greyhound the greatest name in bus transportation, Remember, too, that the thousands of miles of Greyhound routes lead to America's most famed scenic and recreation areas.
