Could you get less than 3? That would be bad. I want to get to DC 2 hours before my second ticket. I also want to buy my trip out of DC as two separate tickets because it's cheaper even though it's the exact same itinerary as a direct ticket. Would this cause any problems?

    Is your question "Will the ticket printer work correctly?" – Michael Hampton May 11 '15 at 0:23
  • adding USA tag as this system doesn't exist in Greyhound Australia last I checked. – Mark Mayo May 11 '15 at 0:26
  • I'm not 100% sure the programmer had thought someone might have three un-picked up transactions before (not 3 tickets — I'm sure the machine knows what to do if you clicked 2 adults and 1 kid on one transaction). Most people probably just print them or pay full price but I don't have a printer. I don't have 3 cards to use one for each ticket either which would make me stop worrying. – 100602014 May 11 '15 at 1:00

    I don't see even a question here. You bought 3 tickets? And what is the problem with having 3 tickets for a trip with 3 legs? And what's up with kiosks? There are kiosks to print Greyhound tickets? For me this lacks context and a clear question. – Vince May 11 '15 at 1:07

    And then there's the whole other question of whether two hours in DC is enough time. Your bus into DC will probably be late, and you will probably miss your connection. (Though this isn't usually a big deal; you just get on the next bus.) – Michael Hampton May 11 '15 at 2:22

First the system will know you have separate reservations, as each time you book, you should get a confirmation number and each will be different. The ticketing kiosk will look up the tickets to print based on your confirmation number, which will be also tied to the card you used. It is not uncommon for people to book multiple tickets.

And in worst case scenario, you go talk to the ticket agent at the bus station before your bus gets there and have them look up your booking(s). Of course this may result in the agent seeing your "hidden city" ticketing trick, though I am not sure if Greyhound has policies against this like the airlines do.
