Has anyone used a car seat on a Grayhound bus?

A: Customers are welcome to use child safety seats on Greyhound buses. However, the seat space must be purchased at the discounted child fare. You should ensure that your child seat has been approved for use in a motor vehicle, and is used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
It is your responsibility to secure the child seat to the bus seat with strapping or webbing that is approved by the child seat manufacturer. You are responsible for providing the strapping or the webbing. You should also secure your child in the child seat with a manufacturer-approved lap and/or shoulder belt/harness. Greyhound does not provide lap and/or shoulder belts/harnesses.

What is this strapping?

Their wording doesn't make a lot of sense. I'd call Greyhound and talk to them about it. Hope you find your answer.

Congrats on your sweet baby boy! Smile

If you google this you'll get some hits from carseat.org of other people asking similar questions.

They told me to use the LATCH system and clip the clips together behind the back of the bus seat. How safe do you think that is?

I believe they're talking about a strap that fastens the child seat to the seat on the bus (not a seatbelt)... my child seats always come with this strap, but I never know how to fasten it so I just toss it lol!
