About C&J Bus Lines

C&J is a family-run bus carrier that provides first-class travel across the Northeast region of the United States. C&J is happy to take the hassle out of navigating traffic or finding parking while bringing travelers to 6 cities across New York, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.

Established in 1968 by Joe and Bertha Jalbert, C&J Travel Inc. originally only featured six daily trips to Logan Airport in Boston and operated out of a small garage space in New Hampshire. The company quickly grew, expanding its locations and taking on the new name of C&J Bus Lines. Now with 30 daily trips, C&J is known across the Northeast for providing reliable, affordable transportation.

With outlets at every seat, free Wi-Fi, extra legroom, and clean restrooms available on all coaches, it's no wonder the C&J bus service won the 2022 Wanderu Passengers' Choice Award for Best Quality Vehicles and was honored as one of the best ground travel providers in New England.

On top of these comfortable amenities, the C&J bus fleet is green-certified. All coaches have the technology to reduce polluting particulate emissions by 90%. High-efficiency tires help maximize fuel economy, and C&J is the only bus carrier to meet the EPA's near-zero NOx emissions requirements. In fact, their coaches emit the least amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) per passenger compared to any other kind of transportation vehicle.

C&J has been an official Wanderu partner since 2016, so you can find the best bargains and deals C&J has to offer right here. Find the cheapest bus tickets across the Northeast with Wanderu, and ride comfortably with C&J Bus Lines.

C&J Bus Lines Coach Guide & FAQs

Do C&J Bus Lines coaches have WiFi?

Yes, C&J Bus Lines offers WiFi on their coaches. Although most trips with C&J Bus Lines will have WiFi as advertised, some coaches 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. C&J Bus Lines 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 points or USB points on the coach?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard C&J Bus Lines coaches. 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 C&J Bus Lines might sometimes use replacement coach 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 C&J Bus Lines's schedule?

On a typical day, C&J Bus Lines has 30 scheduled coach 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.

Your thirst is a priority for C&J Bus Lines, and to make sure you are never parched onboard their coach, they offer free bottles of water.

Do you find yourself squished in a regular seat or just love having extra room to sprawl out? Well you’re in luck as C&J Bus Lines offers extra legroom seating.
