Pros: On time departure, not crowded, safe drivers, comfortable bus. Cons: Stop at Hartford was too long given no passengers boarded and disembarked, about 15 minutes. Minor cleanliness issues like waste left behind. Biggest issue is crossing Washington bridge into Jersey and coming into Manhattan through the Lincoln tunnel. I don't know if it's required by law or something, but that detour adds half an hour to the trip.

Pros: Driver Alex was a very skilled driver but drove way too fast. He often used the far right lane to pass other busses, trucks and cars. If any other drivers veered just a little we would have had a serious accident. He hit the horn many, many times to avoid said accident(s). Slow down Alex. Cons: Above. Tips: Bring a drink because the Gi bus no longer provides water.

Go Buses Bus Guide & FAQs

Do Go Buses buses have WiFi?

Yes, Go Buses offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with Go Buses will have WiFi as advertised, some buses might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Go Buses WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Are there power outlets or USB plugs on the bus?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Go Buses buses. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Go Buses might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

What is Go Buses's schedule?

On a typical day, Go Buses has 20 scheduled bus trips in total. However, the exact departure and arrival times vary depending on the day and route. The best way to find the exact schedule for your trip is to use the search tool on this page.

Can you pick up will call tickets at the station?

No, Go Buses does not offer will call tickets. You should purchase your tickets online and make sure you have everything you need to board before you arrive at the station.

Do you need an ID to get on the bus?

No, Go Buses does not require an ID to board its buses at this time. Of course, it is always a good idea to carry a government-issued ID whenever you hit the road.

Are meals or beverages available?

Go Buses does not offer meals or beverages onboard. We recommend you bring a drink and some snacks for your trip. We also suggest packing a reusable water bottle with you to reduce your impact on the environment. However, note that most buses do not allow you to bring your own alcoholic drinks. Your thirst is a priority for Go Buses, and to make sure you are never parched onboard their bus, they offer free bottles of water. Just remember - the only right thing to do at the end of your trip is to make sure every water bottle is placed in a recycle bin to reduce your impact on the environment.

Does Go Buses offer any premium features like extra legroom or movies?

Go Buses focuses on delivering a great travel experience at a low price and currently does not offer premium features like extra legroom or onboard entertainment.
