They posted the bus number for 5:45 pm departure on two gates, but of course the bus was only at one. About 30 if us waited at gate 4 where it said the bus would leave at 5:45. It apparently left on time from gate 8, leaving about half of the bus waiting at gate 4. They didn’t get us another bus until 8 pm and it went to NYC , not Newark, with no ticket or or instructions in NYC on how to get to Newark. Spent $75 on an Uber from NYC to Newark at 1 am-almost twice the cost of the original Boston-Newark ticket. Supposedly will get a refund for the original $39 ticket.
Going from Boston to NY, the front desk,customer service and the Driver's aid were pointing at each other for directions. We, as customers, were in the middle and frustrated. The same thing occurred in NY, so we left the Port Authority. We did not care to have a long walk to take a regular train to take two rides to go to Harrison, NJ.
Bus driver .. operator Hicks from Penn to Newark was excellent .. a credit to your company .. poor service from the long nailed lady in the information booth in Penn New York about 3 pm so bit of a balance really
There was too much delay without anyone addressing us. The rating here is just because we were later told it was because of a disabled person. Otherwise, it would have been 1 star. We left 50 minutes behind schedule. Also, rain water was dropping on my wife from the roof. It started about 20 minutes to the end of the journey. I later complained to the driver when we arrived NY. Due to the delay, we did not use the 2nd leg of the ticket to Newark as we disembarked at Ports Authority, NY.

Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from Boston to Newark.
