When I buy my bus ticket online, is it a reservation?
There are no reservations. What you are buying online is an open bus ticket on any of our scheduled buses on the date(s) selected. If you are asked to provide an intended time of travel, that is for our planning purposes only. We understand that your plans may get changed due to factors outside of your control. We understand that, and will accommodate you to your destination. Here’s how it works. The online bus ticket guarantees the holder transportation to the designated destination; it does not guarantee a reservation on a specific bus. We anticipate high travel volume periods and allocate additional resources accordingly. However we cannot be responsible for factors totally beyond our control. If there is an unexpected surge in ridership and a certain bus fills up, passengers are accommodated as expeditiously as possible.
I have booked my bus ticket online but I didn’t receive my ticket in my email, what do I do?
Send us an email at email@example.com if in advance of the travel date and we will verify that the email was entered correctly, and we will resend you the ticket.
How close to schedule do the buses run?
We strive for on time performance and reliability while providing safe, professional, and courteous service. Occasionally there can be delays caused by traffic or weather. Please choose a bus schedule that permits ample time for unforeseen delays. Weather, traffic flow, and other factors may affect operating conditions. Due to these circumstances, passengers are advised to allow additional time during bad weather conditions or during highway construction periods. Schedules are subject to change without notice.
How do I determine which departure I should choose?
When booking your ticket online, you may be asked to select an anticipated time of travel. The airlines recommend that you arrive at the airport at least two (2) hours prior to any domestic departure time, three (3) hours prior to any international departure time. Arrival at Amtrak should be at least one hour prior to departure time. Allow additional time during bad weather conditions or during highway construction periods. We are not responsible for errors in schedule, damage suffered from late arrivals, failure to make connections, or situations beyond our control.
Do you run the same schedule every day—even holidays?
Yes, we run the same schedule every day of the year—even holidays. It is precisely on these days that we often run additional buses on the listed departures.
How early should I arrive at the bus?
Ten minutes ahead of the departure time is usually sufficient, except during peak travel times when additional time is necessary to load.
Can I use my ticket on another date or at another time if my flight is late or is canceled?
You may be prompted to select an anticipated date and time of travel when booking a bus ticket online for planning purposes. However, due to the unpredictable nature of airline and train connections, tickets may be redeemed up to 1 year from the date of purchase.
What if I lose my ticket or can't find my online bus ticket? Can the driver look up my booking?
Drivers and agents do not have the ability to look up bus ticket bookings online. The customer must keep their ticket safe and secure as replacements for lost tickets will not be issued. The customer must present their ticket to board vehicles. The ticket remains the property of the company and must be produced for inspection and, if requested to do so, be surrendered upon demand to an authorized company official. The customer will not be permitted to use Coach USA services without a valid ticket.
At what age are my children eligible for a discount?
All children, 16 years and under traveling with an adult, require a ticket for travel. Discounted child fares are available for up to three children 16 years old and under, with each adult fare purchased. If there are more than three children traveling with one adult, each child thereafter shall pay the full fare.
