A place called Adam's House in Prince George's cnty MD was accross from the loc at one of the fairs I worked for, gave me bus fair and amtrak tix. Some type of social charity shit, im still not sure exactly what they do. They referred me to DC travelers aid also but I never had to check it out

San Francisco has a program called "Homeward Bound", you can get a free greyhound ticket home or where ever the address is on your ID. Go to the food stamp office on mission, I think it is like 8th and mission.
Ya, this is legit. They also give you $10 cash per day for your trip. I got a ticket to PA and they gave me $40 and I didn't even have an ID. One good way to get a free ticket from Homeward Bound to anywhere you want to go is to just get a cheap Net10 prepaid phone and when you call in to activate give them the zip code of wherever you want to go. This allows you to have a phone with the area code of your destination... Give that phone to someone right outside the social service office and have Homeward Bound use that number as your people's contact number. Have whoever it is tell them bogus info and then you are good.

Shit, might as well do this even if you don't want to leave SF... Get a ticket for somewhere on the East Coast so it will be a long 4 day ride so you can get the $40 and just get off the bus at the first stop. That's a little money in your pocket and all you lose is a few hours. The first stop for me was in Oakland so you would have to hitch back to SF if you wanted to stay there.

The two times I was in SLO jail I was offered bus rides out of town without asking. I have spoken to several people that have been in jail
there and I haven't heard of anybody else who has been offered this (I guess they really have to have a dislike for you, or maybe just
asking might work). First time they offered a ride to anywhere (even oklahoma), the second time kern county was offered (bakersfield).
I never accepted either offer. waaaaa waaaaa waaaaaa

INTERESTING STORY HERE BRO:

I got pulled off a unit in Fargo. I walked for eleven miles into town, where the fuzz scooped me up and booked and released me. Then, I was told I needed to get the fuck outta town. All to my lonesome, nothing but me and my pack, i started walking. Then the fuzz called the state troopers on my ass. Fuckin bulltits. Had to walk more. On day two the SAME trooper saw me. I had walked maybe 32 miles in 48 hours. Fucking bastards. THEN he drives me all the way back to fargo. Trooper (Mathews?) was nice to me surprisingly. Sad If i were to have kept walking I would have surely died. There wasn't SHIT for MILES. He drove me ALL THE WAY BACK TO FUCKING FARGO! then him and all his copper buddies pitched in a got me a ticket and said don't come back for a year. Thinking he was just trying to make an impression on me or some shit. But anyway, he was nice, got me a ticket out of his own buddie's pockets. Kickass right? Crazy as tits if you ask me.

Traveler's aid sucks catshits. But then again, bus rides are no fun. Unless you got a hot momma next to you with a fat ass and food stamps. Just sayin.

i have seen this happen before too. i think it's because of the whole vagrancy thing going on in lewis county or wherever the fuck that town's in.

The Nashville Homeless Power Project has a program like that; and they don't ID you. I've used it two different times under different aliases. They require you to have stayed at a shelter/rehab in town for at least 3 nights (they check) before they'll give you a Greyhound voucher. The program was set up by the cops and the "downtown commission"; but its administered by the homeless advocacy group, who are all too anxious to help you out and send you wherever you want without verifying anything. I tried to get them to send me to Hawaii; but they can only use Greyhound, which doesn't leave the continental US.

Got all kinds of free shit. food, dranks, soap, coffee etc and a ride from this place called "Calvary Chapel" in Live Oak, California. They also gave us gift bags that were little wooden baskets filled with weird religious shit (and a candle and some chocolate). In order to procure this they made us sit in their church for an hour while we watched their fucked up service. it was somewhat traumatizing, there was that "speaking in tongues" weirdness. The worst part is they locked the doors so nobody could leave and we had to watch their service, a 90 year old woman was screaming and crying right next to me, and afterwards all the towns people crowded around us, so excited to see outsiders, they almost didnt let us leave. But hey this ordeal kept us fed for like the next week. and they drove us to the next big town.

That's like one of those time share things where you get a free hotel stay with a mandatory attendance to their sales pitch conference.

Yeah except at the sales pitch you worry they might sacrifice you lol. I just remembered that I was reading their little church bulletin newsletter thing and I gathered that the town of Live Oak was repeatedly trying to get this Church shut down and there had been several arson attempts! haha

The town was actualy trying to shut them down or they wanted to believe it was to play out their "christians are under attack" delusions that have become extremely popular lately?

Well the arson attacks were definitely for real, there were pictures, there was also offensive graffiti. But I got the vibe that the people doing the attacking were "Christians" themselves, they just weren't down with this crazy sect in their town.

just found the website http://sermonsofvictory.com/home.html i seriously recommend you stop by if you're ever taking the 99W through Cali on a Sunday morning. The place has a massive outbuilding full of apocalypse supplies and no joke- a shipping container filled to the brim with nothing but bottles of Snapple. they will stock you up.
