    so, my friend and i have been doing a whole fuck ton of research into this greyhound scamming shit for some fresh tickets.

    we've literally figured out how to come up with just about every aspect of a greyhound ticket, from the scheduling number, your tariff codes, etc.

    no confirmation numbers (because how the fuck would you even), also, print multiple tickets for boarding number variations.

    currently, we are working on the last unknown variable on a standard ticket, which is the completely random, what seems to be, 3 or 4 digit number next to your boarding number.

    we're trying the new tickets out tomorrow, with 3 transfers; each transfer is actually just a ticket made up individually, rather than a single ticket containing 3 destinations/sub-tickets.

    will let everyone know how well our system works soon

    It might be worth it to add in some random artifacts all over the page since that would more obviously show a fucked up printer (like missing chunks, streaks or scattered particles).. But then again that might also make 'em more suspicous or turn you down for a ticket that is unscannable. Something else you could try is "spilling" coffie/water/something slightly acidic/something that'll stain it on the ticket in critical areas like the barcodes as well as elsewhere to hide that it was intentional. If you have the right ink, a drop of water will drag the ink with it as it gets absorbed into the paper and spreads out, thus rendering that area completely useless.

    just want everyone to know that my system works flawlessly up until they decide to check confirmation numbers. I advise staining that one part of your forged ticket.

    @nomad89 may know this trick, we were talking about it the other day.. basically most of the numbers on the ticket pertain to the time and date of the bus and you just have to guess like 4 digits

    that's not accurate, a lot of the codes are regional and are absolute, or can't be randomized. there's a system to it.
