OurBus Cancellation Policy

You can cancel your OurBus ticket up to 30 minutes before your trip’s departure time in exchange for a full credit that you can use toward a future OurBus trip. To quickly and easily cancel your trip, click the “Cancel Ticket” button on the ticket emailed to you by OurBus. You can also log in to your account on the OurBus website, find your ticket under “My Passes,” and select the option to cancel that ticket.

After your ticket is cancelled, the amount you paid for your ticket will be transferred to your OurBus Wallet immediately. This credit in your OurBus Wallet can be used for future purchases with OurBus, and is valid for up to 5 years. Please keep in mind that OurBus tickets are non-refundable, and cannot be cancelled after the bus has departed.

Although your OurBus reservation cannot be changed or rescheduled, if you’d like to make any changes to your travel plans, you can simply cancel your ticket and use the money in your Ourbus Wallet to book a new ticket.

Wanderu also offers an affordable trip protection option by Allianz Global Assistance that you can purchase when booking your tickets. In addition to 24-hour assistance during your trip and other benefits, trip protection can help you get your money back in case you need to cancel or change your OurBus booking. You may file a claim to be reimbursed if you do not travel on your bus trip due to covered reasons such as extreme weather, illness, or required work shifts.

OurBus Bus Guide & FAQs

If you are planning to travel with OurBus, keep in mind that each passenger is allowed one large piece of luggage up to 50 lbs (23 kg) that can be stored under the bus. The total exterior dimensions (length + width + height) of the bag or suitcase should not exceed 62 inches. You can also bring one small carry-on bag that can fit in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you.

If you’re looking to bring additional luggage that needs to be placed in the cargo hold under the bus, you will be required to book an additional ticket to make sure the carrier will accept it and it will successfully make it to your final destination.

You can use OurBus to travel to and from 121 cities across several states in the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast regions of the United States. Some of the cities where the carrier has the biggest coverage include New York City, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Ithaca.

Some of the most popular routes in OurBus’ network include Boston - New York, Philadelphia - Washington, D.C., Ithaca - New York, and Baltimore - Richmond.

Yes, OurBus offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with OurBus 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. OurBus 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.

Yes, there are power outlets onboard OurBus 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 OurBus 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.

On a typical day, OurBus has 1678 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.

You’d be happy to find out that OurBus has a very flexible cancellation policy. While the carrier does not offer refunds on booked tickets, you are able to cancel your ticket up to 30 minutes prior to departure in exchange for credit in the amount you paid for it. You will then have five years to use that credit for another OurBus booking.

Keep in mind that you will need to pay the difference in case the new ticket you book is more expensive than the original ticket that you cancelled.

Yes, OurBus requires you to present an ID to an agent to be allowed to board the bus. Make sure you have identification issued by a government agency that meets the carrier’s requirements. Alternative IDs, such as a college ID, won’t work.

Yes, there are bathrooms on OurBus buses. The bathrooms are pretty basic and include a toilet, toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Most bathrooms don’t have running water. As you will be using a bathroom on a moving vehicle, please use caution and hold on to a rail at all times.

Unfortunately, animals are not allowed on OurBus vehicles. The only exception is for trained service animals that are assisting passengers. Service animals need to be harnessed and under control for the duration of the trip.

Yes, OurBus requires that all passengers have printed tickets to board the bus. When you book with Wanderu and activate your account, you will be able to easily find and download your tickets for most buses.

OurBus goes the extra distance to deliver premium features to its customers.

Do you find yourself squished in a regular seat or just love having extra room to sprawl out? Well you’re in luck as OurBus offers extra legroom seating. Since there is no standard of what extra legroom is, the extra space you get may vary between bus lines, but getting extra is always good.
