245 Greyhound Travelers Stranded

Hundreds of people from all over the country are stuck inside downtown El Paso’s Greyhound station, and could be there overnight.

A spokesman for greyhound said around 245 people will probably have to wait until Saturday to catch a bus out of town.

ABC7 crews went to the bus station and found weary travelers, many of whom had been waiting in El Paso for almost a day.

James Joyce began his journey in Atlanta with the plan of getting to California by Christmas Eve.

Joyce rolled into El Paso around 3 a.m.. He said that his bus made it an hour West, when they had to turn back. The unsafe road conditions derailed his plans to surprise his mother, who he hasn’t seen in over 30 years.

“It’s been 31 years since I’ve seen my mom, and I’ve finally scrounged up enough money. I was gonna surprise her,” said Joyce, “Everybody loves to see a white Christmas. “There’s gonna be quite a few happy people, I’m just not one of them.”

A spokesman for Greyhound said the company will be offering people the option to return home for free and a refund. He also said Greyhoud is working to figure out a way to house their passengers over-night.
