Tripper Bus Elite passenger reviews



17 November 2023- Visiting friends

Bethesda to New York

Pros: Excellent timing door to door. Cons: I had a horrible seat on top of the wheal that did not recline and was too high.



27 October 2023- Vacation

New York to Bethesda

Pros: It was 2+1 seating, very spacious and comfortable seats, suspension was great. Price was almost double compared to flix bus but worth every penny. Cons: Some announcements for first timers would have been good. We didn't realise whether it wil stop in between for a toilet break/coffee break etc. There was no announcements except for driver change and 10 mins before our stop. Also WiFi showed a suspicious network and no announcement about it also. Tips: Read above feedback. Arrive 30 mins early to get front seats.



8 October 2023- Solo travel

Washington to New York

Clean, punctual, good driver



25 May 2023- Business

Bethesda to New York

Pros: The seating sheeting was highly commendable. Cons: Pick up location infrastructure. Tips: A good company to choose while traveling.



23 May 2023- Visiting family

Bethesda to New York

Pros: Legroom, wider aisles. Cons: I used disinfectant wipes to clean the desk, noticed a little bit of dirt. Signage needed to locate the outlets to plug in the phone, etc. Even though we were told where they were, it was hard to reach from the single seat I was seated at. Cup holders for every seat. Tips: Enjoy the roominess!
