Pros: The Boltbus price just can't be beat. Nothing fancy, just point A to point B transportation that was efficient and well organized. The driver was direct and informative. The stop at the US Border was thorough and smooth. Thank you, Boltbus for incredible value for dollars spent. Cons: Wi-fi just didn't work well. Bolt TV is not operating. Perhaps clear that option off your website and user login pages. Tips: Definitely recommend for quick, budget-friendly travel.

Pros: I was happy to see I could take my Bike Friday in it's travel bag without any difficulty!! Cons: Be on time (but, of course, border inspection is out of Greyhound's hands). Tips: It' true be there 15 minutes before scheduled departure is more than adequate.
