How do these buses handle on snow and ice? Or does everyone try to stay out of snowy areas when they plan their trips? I know greyhound runs all year, but I am just wondering is it a scary thing, or do they get stuck easily?
Most busnuts either head south for the winter and stay away from snow/ice, or park their rig 'til spring.
It's not a scary thing at all, once you understand the limitations. Probably easier than a car, simply because of the increased visibility of what's taking place in front of you, giving you that much more time to react to changing situations.
If you have to drive in those conditions, you'll find that a bus will often keep going when the 4x4 Tahoe gets bogged down. Stopping, however, is another story - like triple the distance that Tahoe takes. They will slide on ice, just like a car. (Somewhere out in my garage I've got a video of a transit bus sliding downhill on ice and pushing a car along with it! Wheee!!!)
Simple thing to remember (even in your car): Drive like you've got a raw egg strapped to the bottom of your right foot, and DON'T BREAK THE EGG!!
That simple little tip works very, very well, and can save your tush.
FWIW & HTH. . .
