At 30th street, maybe a over-hang? it's been raining a lot lately. And the wind in NYC is piercing to say the least. My pone went dead and there was no place for me to PLUG IN.

Pros
The staff was friendly, the bus was clean, and the temperature on the bus was perfect.
Cons
I have driven into D.C. before and know that that traffic is always there. The website should be more honest about how bad traffic could get. Also, the bus should get wifi since that is such a long ride and people could be doing work on the bus.
Tips
Always add an hour to your trip.

The bus could have been cleaner, especially the cup holders. The seat, while spacious, could have been more comfortable. WiFi onboard would have been much appreciated too.

only difficulty was the amount of space in front of me. so tight. and even tighter when the person in front of me reclined her seat. I was glad no one was sitting next to me allowing me to stretch a bit.
Tips
used earbuds. some individuals don't think about their volume. For the most part my ear buds helped me not to hear them so much.

My trip left on time but still managed to arrive 2 hours after the advertised time. I'm not sure why I paid extra to have a faster trip if I ended up arriving even later than my alternative, cheaper options advertised.

Is there WiFi onboard GoBuses?

Yes GoBuses offers WiFi connection onboard their bus trips. Though most trips with GoBuses will have WiFi as advertised, some trips 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. GoBuses 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 on a GoBuses bus? Are there USB plugs?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard GoBuses bus trips. You can generally find one or two plugs per row of seats, so be a good traveler 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 power outlet USB converter that typically come with most phones and tablets. Since GoBuses might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power outlets. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

Does GoBuses offer will call tickets, that you pick up at the station?

No, currently GoBuses 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 or stop.

Do you need an ID to get on a GoBuses bus?

No, currently GoBuses does not require an ID to board the bus. Of course, it is always a good idea to carry a government-issued ID whenever you hit the road.

Can you use your phone to board GoBuses?

Yes, you can use your phone to get onboard GoBuses bus. Simply show your confirmation code on your phone to the agent. If you booked on Wanderu, confirmation codes for your upcoming trip are in your My Trips for most carriers.

Are there bathrooms on GoBuses buses?

Yes, there are bathrooms on GoBuses bus trips. 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 offered onboard GoBuses trips?

GoBuses 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. Most carriers, though, do not allow you to bring your own alcoholic drinks. Your thirst is a priority for GoBuses, and to make sure you are never parched onboard their bus, they offer free water bottles. 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 GoBuses offer any premium features like extra legroom, movies or TV?

GoBuses focuses on delivering a great travel experience at a low price and they currently don’t offer any premium features onboard. But these days, between your laptop, tablet, smartphone and e-reader, you’re the master of your own entertainment even on longer journeys.

GoBuses serves travelers in United States of America with bus service to 12 destinations. These are the most popular GoBuses schedules and routes.
