While there was technically WiFi on board, I couldn't open email on my web browser on my computer (too intensive for the network) it was really only an alternative to using my own data for email and articles on my phone.

Our drive from NY to Washington D.C. was great! Our driver went over all the policies and made each and every one of the riders felt comfortable before we even pulled off. The driver arrived at our destination 30 minutes early despite picking us up 20 minutes late. He ...More

Pros
I arrived alive!!
Cons
The bus was dusty and smelled a bit of mold. The windows were filthy and some part of the interior was taped together with duct tape. We also spent too much time at stops waiting for folks to return to the bus even though they were told we would depart in 15 minutes.
Tips
Take your chances with the Coachrun bus company. After I booked I looked at reviews and most were terrible. I took a chance thinking people are just too picky. I booked a different bus company to return. Wish I could get a refund for the CoachRun return ticket. :(

Excellent bus driver. We hit a pretty bad storm during the last 2-3 hours but he always clearly communicated the next stop, estimated arrival time, and let us know about 10 minutes prior to arriving to start packing up, etc. At Union Station we stopped for a quick break...More

After hearing about chinatown bus horror stories I went in expecting the worst.. but I actually had a pretty positive experience! The only thing lacking was the communication, as it wasn't clear why the bus was delayed. We did end up getting in later than scheduled but ...More
