The hundreds of people who were stranded at Atlanta's Greyhound Bus Lines terminal over the weekend have departed, the company said.
Snow-bound, icy roads in surrounding states shut down the bus system, delaying passengers as long as two days, Greyhound spokesperson Bonnie Bastian said Monday.
The conditions affected a swath of the United States from Texas to Virginia and forced Greyhound to take its drivers off the roads, she said.
"If the roads aren't safe, we try not to put our passengers and drivers at risk," she said.
A couple of hundred passengers were stuck in Atlanta and were allowed to sleep in the terminal or in buses with engines running to maintain the temperature, Bastian said.
"We handed out hundreds of food vouchers and we also had a local mission come in and give everyone food," she said.
