It was a nice smooth ride

Tanya C.March 9, 2020 | 

My driver was pleasant and accommodating. I explained to her about my asthma & anxiety and she seated me up front where I had ample space. I'm very pleased with Bolt Bus Service

Rhoda A.March 9, 2020 | 

Driving was excellent. The socket to charge my phone was broken and another socket that I used barely charged the phone.

Rokia S.March 3, 2020 | 

Very awesome trip.

Karen M.March 3, 2020 | 

Missed the bus by a minute and had to buy a whole new ticket for the next bus. Rather inconvenient and frustrating.

This is the second time that I am using Boltbus and I am satisfied with their service. The online booking was easy. Their drivers are polite and drive well. I will always recommend the bus to anyone I know.

Soraya B.January 9, 2020 | 

Excellent service

Coraline P.January 4, 2020 | 

the bus was comfortable and we didn't have to wait, my only issue is small: english isn't my native language and the bus driver gave his instructions too quickly for me to understand.

Amelie F.January 4, 2020 | 

Nice trip and a good organisation

Emily N.January 4, 2020 | 

Very efficient and helpful staff

Helena W.January 2, 2020 | 

Lowcost busfair: comfort was okay. Old bus, but good driver and comfortable seat, wifi and clean toilet onboard. We left 10/15 min late but that’s okay with me (since we pay a low price I am not so critical).

Adel A.December 31, 2019 | 

We arrived before the time and thats great

Carol J.December 22, 2019 | 

WiFi didn't work. Otherwise a great trip.

Eric Mawuko A.December 21, 2019 |

Rosa G.December 16, 2019 | 

I missed my bus at the GWB bus terminal returning to PH and the staff member what rude, dismissive and not helpful at all. It cost me triple the price to return home. Very disappointed with Greyhound.

Virginia O.December 15, 2019 |

Shakeema G.December 11, 2019 | 

The bus left before the time it was supposed to depart from philly and had to buy another ticket waste my money if it said 7:30pm should not leave at 6:30 or whatever and they didn't even call out bus departure

Brigitte B.December 10, 2019 | 

Great trip! Smooth ride and the price was right. I will do it again.

Joseph S.December 9, 2019 | 

Driver did not know the route

Maureen F.December 2, 2019 | 

Would be better if there's and earlier bus leaving Philadelphia because of the traffic delays when exiting of the turnpike
