Bus riders: Trip turned into roach-fest

This Just In

Roaches crawling out of air vents. Roaches climbing up seats and windows. Roaches on people’s coats and hats. Roaches everywhere.

It sounds like a scene from a horror movie — but is in fact what passengers say happened on a Greyhound bus journey from Atlantic City to New York on Friday.

“There’s like a thousand roaches,” passenger Dawn Alexander told CNN affiliate WABC. “And when I say infested, I mean infested. People were in the aisles literally brushing roaches off of them.”

“We thought it was one. It turned out to be a whole house full of roaches,” said a fellow passenger.

Cellphone footage shows the pests scurrying across the bus floor and steps.

Greyhound’s Media Relations Director Maureen Richmond said the bus driver had acted swiftly when passengers alerted him to “bugs on the bus.”
