I am writing about a ten year old bus trip but it is still eating at my brain.
On Feb 27, 2003 I and a friend took Eurolines bus from a Paris Pigalle street corner at 10:30 PM.
The bus was full and many people were sleeping with their legs across the aisle. After a couple hours I stood started to navigate the aisle back to the toilet facilities. But then I blinked and saw that there wasn't any!
From my fellow passengers I learned that the one and only stop was at the Calais Chunnel bus terminal.
After several agonizing hours we arrived and the driver told us to stay on the bus. After the passengers threatened to riot we were allowed a very brief piss break. After that we were loaded on a train and the next stop was Victoria Station after 5 AM.
In other words, Eurolines scheduled a trip of more than seven hours without toilet facilities or a scheduled break! It was an agonizing uncomfortable trip. I have taken long-distance bus trips on four continents and this was definitely the worst.
Summary: Worst bus trip ever
