You can travel on bus without any problem because you don't need any passport to travel by bus.

Not true larajohn if you're crossing an international border and there are many places that require government ID in order to purchase a ticket and if you're a foreigner that means a Passport.

Cheers,
Terry

I just called Greyhound Bus and learned something new. They have stopped selling their Discovery Pass. You used to be able to purchase unlimited bus travel for a month or more. Not cost effective I was told and Greyhound canceled it. The lady also told me that Greyhound does not require an ID when buying a ticket from A to B inside the US. Since I am a big Jack Reacher fan, that is good news. Jack can still roam the US w/o anyone knowing where he is! Terry is correct when it comes to crossing into Canada or Mexico. A passport is needed.

Are traveling within the country? If so, you shouldn't have a problem.

Are we talking about traveling within the United States? If so, why would you need a passport to travel within one country? But if you've come to the US from another country anyway, you'll most likely have a passport on you, so I don't see a problem.

If you're traveling by bus within the same country regardless of whether you're in the US or Europe, you should be fine. If your bus will cross the borders of two or more countries however, you should bring your passport.
