Greyhound has operated in South Africa since 1984. According to its website, every year it transports 804 293 passengers over 25 million kilometres of road, travelling across a comprehensive network of southern Africa.

It has always prized itself on offering "luxury and affordability". Its Dreamliner buses are built to five-star specifications, it claims.
