KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Hundreds of Greyhound bus passengers are stranded in terminals as a winter storm makes driving hazardous.

Greyhound spokeswoman Bonnie Bastian says a storm is disrupting travel through Texas, Oklahoma and parts of Arkansas and Tennessee.

By late Friday morning, 23-year-old Katrina Smith had been waiting in the Kansas City terminal for more than 30 hours. She was supposed to be in the city just 15 minutes to transfer buses as she headed from Denver to Tulsa, Okla.

She says the crowd of stranded travelers is growing and becoming more frustrated.

Bastian says she knows the delays are inconvenient. But she stressed that it isn't safe to travel across icy roads.

The company is providing meal vouchers and leaving buses running outside to give passengers another place to wait.
