Frustrated travelers were left stranded overnight in a Chicago bus station as Greyhound said its buses were stuck in the Northeast due to a massive winter storm. 

Some passengers have been stuck since Thursday morning, saying they have had to sleep on the floor with little access to food and water. At one point more than one hundred passengers were stuck in the Chicago station. 

Those that weren't stranded reported being delayed as the company began pushing passengers off their original buses to accomodate others. 

"We are diligently working to accommodate the large increase in ridership as many travelers are returning from the holiday season," Greyhound said in a statement. "However, we currently have limited resources as many of our buses from our Northeast schedules are unavailable due to the winter storm."

The company noted it was working to bring buses from other locations and expected to begin getting customers out of the Chicago station by Friday morning.  

"We are doing our best to accommodate our customers with the resources we have available," the statement read.
