Below are some travel tips that may make your travel experience more enjoyable.


Tips for Travel:

  • Buy your ticket early for the lowest price and the best schedule availability.
  • If you buy your ticket online, don’t forget to bring your picture ID with you.
  • Arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.
  • Place an ID tag both inside and outside your luggage with your name, address and phone number.
  • Keep your medications, electronics and valuables with you inside the bus. Don’t pack them in luggage which you place beneath the bus.
  • Check for personal belongings on your seat and in the overhead luggage rack before leaving the bus.
  • Download your favorite movies and shows before you travel. All our buses offer free WI-FI, however, you are limited to how much data you can use and most streaming websites are blocked to ensure all passengers have access to the WI-FI.
  • Come prepared. Bring your headphones, chargers (yes, you can charge on the bus), and some snacks for the ride.
