Can you edit your BoltBus reservation?
Are BoltBus tickets refundable?
Do BoltBus buses have WiFi?
Yes, BoltBus offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with BoltBus 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. BoltBus 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.
What is the BoltBus luggage policy?
Carry On Bags: You can bring two small bags the size of a backpack or a pursue. The carry-on bags should fit in the overhead bins.
Checked Baggage: You are allowed to bring one piece of luggage to be placed under the bus.
Are there power outlets or USB plugs on the bus?
Yes, there are power outlets onboard BoltBus buses. 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 BoltBus 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 BoltBus's schedule?
On a typical day, BoltBus has 121 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?
No, BoltBus 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.
How much do child tickets cost?
Do you need an ID to get on the bus?
No, BoltBus does not require an ID to board its buses at this time. Of course, it is always a good idea to carry a government-issued ID whenever you hit the road.
Does BoltBus have bathrooms?
Yes, there are bathrooms on BoltBus buses. 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 beverages available?
BoltBus 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 buses do not allow you to bring your own alcoholic drinks.
Do you have to print your BoltBus ticket?
BoltBus does not require a printed ticket to board the bus. Instead, an eTicket is sent to you by email when you make your reservation. You can use your smartphone to show this eTicket to the ticketing agent as you board.
Does BoltBus offer any premium features like extra legroom or movies?
BoltBus goes the extra distance to deliver premium features to its customers.
Movies are provided during the bus trip to keep you entertained. Don’t forget to bring your favorite pair of headphones, as headphones are not always included on the bus. We recommend in-ear noise cancelling headphones due to their small size.
Do you find yourself squished in a regular seat or just love having extra room to sprawl out? Well you’re in luck as BoltBus offers extra legroom seating. Since there is no standard of what extra legroom is, the extra space you get may vary between bus lines, but getting extra is always good.
Board games are all the rage these days and BoltBus is keeping up with the latest trends by providing games you can play with your seat neighbors.
