Travel Tips and Advice

Passengers with Tickets will be Boarded First

Passengers who have purchased tickets in advance online or from one of our ticketing locations will be boarded first. Passengers with cash will be able to purchase a ticket from the driver ONLY if seats are available.

We recommend purchasing your ticket in advance – especially if you are traveling on a Friday, Sunday, or in conjunction with a holiday.

We make every effort to have a seat available for passengers holding a pre-purchased ticket. While purchasing a ticket in advance helps to ensure a seat is available, it is not a guarantee.

Print Your Online Tickets Ahead of Time

If you purchase your ticket online, please print it out ahead of time.
Drivers CANNOT accept confirmation numbers or tickets on a smart phone or other device. They MUST be printed out.
 
Stop locations will NOT be able to print your ticket for you. (Even if you bring in on a flash drive or CD.)

If you are having trouble printing your ticket, please call our toll free number
888- 95-GOBUS (888-954-6287) M-F 9am to 5pm.
