Nathaniel T.February 1, 2020 | 

An otherwise fine experience was extremely tainted by the bus breaking down on the way to Seattle. We had to wait about 45 minutes for a different bus to pick us up, eventually dropping us at the depot where we boarded a third bus, eventually getting to our final destination.

Raisa P.January 17, 2020 | 

Great service. Pick up place from Portland not the most convenient for people on the west side?

Victoria V.January 15, 2020 | 

Very convenient, though the stops should be more clearly labeled. We had to guess on whether our bus was actually the one we needed to be on

Maya M.December 28, 2019 | 

Bus broke down via a coolant leak before we got to Seattle. I missed an important meeting.

Connor A.December 9, 2019 | 

Very efficient and respectful staff.

Rebecca H.November 24, 2019 | 

It was the most relaxing trip to Seattle I've had in a long time

Carolyn H.November 20, 2019 | 

No fault of driver, heavy traffic on I-5, bumper to bumper Make toilet seat covers available Hard black metal protrusion sticking up btween seats, hurt my bottom

Chantell D.November 20, 2019 | 

I rode the Bolt Bus for the first time. We got to Seattle ahead of schedule. I was able to charge my phone and take a nap all at the same time.

Sohyeon B.November 18, 2019 | 

This time the driver just departed when passengers got into the vehicle without checking the time.

Victoria B.November 7, 2019 | 

change of stop wasn't helpful. would not have booked with bolt if I had known it wouldn't go from a central location

Christine S.October 22, 2019 | 

Our bus was late as a result of a major crash on I-5. Our driver did well adjusting to the two additional hours of drive time. Our bus is in need of significant repairs: multiple outlets were removed/covered, so were not available for charging phones/laptops AND numerous seat covers were torn. It is fortunate that our bus was only half-full so riders were able to choose their seats accordingly.

Lillian B.October 15, 2019 | 

The operator was very helpful and respectful. His driving was excellent. A bus had a mechanical issue so he was late. He apologized and made up the time safely.

William R.October 14, 2019 | 

Driver's professional and courteous. Disappointed in not having access to internet and being asked to pay more for it.

Jane W.October 11, 2019 | 

It was easy and even got to my destination early!

Lien T.October 11, 2019 | 

This was my first time as well as last time using Boltbus service.

Donya W B.September 30, 2019 | 

Great to have an electrical outlet at my seat. Driver was very knowledgeable about our trip and BoltBus scheduling, and she was really friendly and helpful. Drove bus at appropriate speeds throughout the trip.

Seungyeon H.September 26, 2019 | 

Kind driver! Hope drivers will notice before turning on the light in the bus for our eyes thanks.

Jeff L.September 25, 2019 | 

Strong urine smell until air conditioning when on. Power outlet for my pad wouldn't charge, and could not connect with WiFi.

Walter V.September 25, 2019 |

Driver was excellent.

Ndeye Souka D.September 7, 2019 | 

Good experience so far with boltbus

Rick H.August 30, 2019 | 

very smooth

Mayara F.August 28, 2019 | 

To start: it wasn’t a boltbus vehicle, but a greyhound old bus. Not what I paid for.

Kathryn M.August 25, 2019 | 

Great experience! Driver made sure everyone got on this bus bc we were looking for boltbus but it was going on greyhound.

Marlon D.August 23, 2019 | 

Very reliable and affordable bus service, friendly and professional staff. 5 stars for sure.

Anh D.August 15, 2019 | 

Mostly I didn’t like that I couldn’t charge my phone because the outlets weren’t working.

Julie W.August 12, 2019 | 

First, there is no sign at the bus stop confirming that this is where the bus collection point is. The only thing that let us know that the stop was the right place was other people also waiting there - it was just a random street in the city. Second, it would be nice for the bus driver to give updates on how far/how long it will take to get to the location, e.g. in Tacoma, it would have been good for the driver to say "estimated X minutes to Seattle". Third, the internet did not work at all. Fourth, the bus was really late picking us up and getting to the final destination.
