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 dolla...More
Wi-fi just didn't work well. Bolt TV is not operating. Perhaps clear that option off your website and user login pages.
Definitely recommend for quick, budget-friendly travel.

It was cheap, fast and easy. We arrived 20 minutes ahead of schedule. I was thrilled. The bus driver was very kind.
The seats are in terrible condition. They are torn and mine has partially unhinged so that it rocked every time the person next to me moved or the bus driver breaker.
Don’t expect luxury.

The border crossing can easily add an extra hour to the trip

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