The bus was over 2 hours late and passengers were not warned of this. Passengers stood out in below freezing temperatures the whole time. Very unpleasant experience.

Jefferson Lines Bus Guide & FAQs

Do Jefferson Lines buses have WiFi?

Yes, Jefferson Lines offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with Jefferson Lines 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. Jefferson 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 bus?

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

Since Jefferson Lines 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 Jefferson Lines's schedule?

On a typical day, Jefferson Lines has 29649 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?

Are meals or drinks offered during the trip?
