Frequently Asked Questions

What is OurBus’ luggage policy?

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.

Where can you travel with OurBus?

You can use OurBus to travel to and from 26 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.

Do OurBus buses have WiFi?

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.

Are there power outlets or USB plugs on the bus?

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.

What is OurBus's schedule?

On a typical day, OurBus has 116 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.

What is OurBus’ cancellation and refund policy?

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.

Do you need an ID to get on the bus?

No, OurBus 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.

What are OurBus' COVID-19 protocols?

OurBus is taking steps to ensure safe travel for passengers during the coronavirus outbreak.

As part of its COVID-19 policies:

  • Tickets may be cancelled in exchange for credit for future travel.
  • Buses are cleaned and disinfected between trips. Cleaning procedures include ozonation, spraying disinfectant mist and wiping down all surfaces with alcohol-based solution.
  • Passengers are required to wear a face covering while onboard the bus.
  • Carrier operates at limited capacity for better social distancing.

Are there bathrooms on OurBus buses?

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.

Can you bring pets onto OurBus?

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.

Do you have to print your OurBus ticket?

OurBus does not require a printed ticket to board the bus. Instead, an eTicket is sent to you by email when you make your reservation. You can use your smartphone to show this eTicket to the ticketing agent as you board.

Does OurBus offer any premium features like extra legroom or movies?

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.
