BoltBus runs daily bus service in the northeastern United States. Besides offering $1 tickets on every BoltBus, BoltBus is known for their commitment to keeping customers happy. Every ticket purchased guarantees a reserved seat. It also comes with automatic standby status for any other BoltBus trip on the same route that day, should you need to leave earlier or later than planned. Buses have ample room between seats for maximum comfort and free WiFi is available on every bus.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
