New York to Tysons

Pros: Value for money, comfortable journey. Cons: Travel time. The driver was driving non stop it seems. The bus came an hour late and it took a lot of time to start the journey. Can consider giving a break to drivers by introducing more buses during weekends at least....

Pros: Value for money, comfortable journey. Cons: Travel time. The driver was driving non stop it seems. The bus came an hour late and it took a lot of time to start the journey. Can consider giving a break to drivers by introducing more buses during weekends at least. Tips: Have a buffer of 2 hours in mind before you make any plans. There is a lot of delay in arrival.

Pros: Driver was very friendly. Cons: Very weird route through New Jersey made us over an hour late. I was tracking it on my phone and we could have gotten there much faster a different way. Tips: Don't trust their arrival time estimates.

Go Buses Bus Guide & FAQs

Do Go Buses buses have WiFi?

Yes, Go Buses offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with Go Buses 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. Go Buses 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 outlets or USB plugs on the bus?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Go Buses 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 Go Buses 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 Go Buses's schedule?

On a typical day, Go Buses has 20 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, Go Buses 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.

Do you need an ID to get on the bus?

No, Go Buses 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.

What are Go Buses’s COVID-19 policies?

Are meals or beverages available?

Go Buses 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. Your thirst is a priority for Go Buses, and to make sure you are never parched onboard their bus, they offer free bottles of water. Just remember - the only right thing to do at the end of your trip is to make sure every water bottle is placed in a recycle bin to reduce your impact on the environment.

Does Go Buses offer any premium features like extra legroom or movies?

Go Buses focuses on delivering a great travel experience at a low price and currently does not offer premium features like extra legroom or onboard entertainment.
