Go Greyhound and Leave the Driving to Us was an advertising slogan used by Greyhound Lines, Inc. starting in 1956. The tag line would appear on the bus line's advertising- television commercials, billboards, magazine ads, and radio spots periodically for the next four decades. The slogan implied that by riding a Greyhound bus, one avoided the hassles of driving a car. It made car travel seem less convenient than bus travel. The message confronted Greyhound travelers who owned cars and had a choice (the target market for the commercials), and those who did not. Because of the success of this advertising slogan, Greyhound continually returned to it many times in the years after it was introduced.
