Fairfax to New York

Pros: The main piece that bothered me was the late arrival to NYC, the thirty minutes didn’t have to happen. But there were pit stops on the way which added time to the trip. Cons: Better estimated time frames.

Go Buses Coach Guide & FAQs

Do Go Buses coaches have WiFi?

Yes, Go Buses offers WiFi on their coaches. Although most trips with Go Buses 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. 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 points or USB points on the coach?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Go Buses 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 Go Buses 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 Go Buses's schedule?

On a typical day, Go Buses has 20 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.

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 coach?

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

What are Go Buses’s COVID-19 policies?

Visit our COVID-19 Travel Guide to view the most up-to-date information about Go Buses’s cleaning protocols and adjusted ticket change policies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Are there toilets on Go Buses coaches?

Yes, there are bathrooms on Go Buses coaches. 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.

Are meals or drinks offered during the trip?

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 coaches 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 coach, 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. But these days, between your laptop, tablet, smartphone and e-reader, you’re the master of your own entertainment even on longer journeys.
