I recently traveled from New York to San Francisco.

I had tickets from NYP to CHI, CHI to EMY & EMY to SFC.

I took the Amtrak Bus from Emeryville to San Francisco Ferry.

On my return, I took an Amtrak Bus from San Francisco Ferry

to Santa Barbara, Pacific Surfliner from Santa Barbara to

Los Angles, Southwest Chief to Chicago and the Lake Shore

to New York.

I received a 100 point AGR credit for the Ambus from San Francisco

to Santa Barbara, but no credit for the Ambus from Emeryville

to San Francisco Ferry. It appears to me that if I received

AGR credit on the Ambus from SFC that I should receive AGR credit

for the Ambus to SFC.

Has anyone had a similar experience?

Also, both Ambuses were very nice with personable drivers.

The Santa Barbara bus had a restroom and WiFi.

Not all Thruway bus services get AGR credit, but both the California services you used do. Sometimes it takes a while for your ticket to get from the bus operator to Amtrak for processing. Give it at least three weeks

Whatever siding I'm sitting on!
As PRR60 said, most Thruway buses do earn AGR credit. However, some bus drivers do not turn in the tickets timely, if at all. As said, give it some more time before you start a missing points report. You may not even need to!
