BestBus Terms and Conditions
 
Welcome BestBus Passenger! We are happy that you have chosen to travel with us. The following terms and conditions (referred to on this page as “Terms”) apply to all reservations, tickets and trips with BestBus, Incorporated. “You,’‘ as used in these Terms, means the person using this website, as well as all passengers for whom a reservation is made, a ticket is purchased or who travel with us.
 
Reservations
  1. Tickets may be purchased on the BestBus reservation website, located here. All tickets are payable in United States currency at the time of purchase. All tickets include local, state and federal sales or excise taxes as applicable.
  2. Once purchased, all tickets are non-refundable.
  3. Although we do not issue refunds once the ticket has been purchased, you may reschedule your trip or put your ticket on hold by using this website at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled departure, without incurring any penalty. (BestBus TOO Members may reschedule their trip or put their ticket on hold at least 12 hours prior to their scheduled departure, without incurring any penalty.) You will be responsible for any additional fees if the face value of the initial ticket is less than the price of the rescheduled ticket.
  4. If you wish to reschedule your trip or put your ticket on hold less than 24 hours (or 12 hours for BestBus Too Members) before your scheduled departure, you must contact BestBus by telephone at (202) 332-2691 or 1 888 888-DCNY . Our customer service representatives will try to help you to reschedule your trip or put the ticket on hold. However, this option is subject to availability and is not guaranteed. This option may also be subject to additional fees or penalties.
  5. Any and all tickets must be used within one year of the initial purchase of the ticket. After one year, your ticket will have no value and cannot be used.
  6. You are required to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure of the bus. If you have not arrived by that time, then BestBus reserves the right to cancel your ticket and sell your seat or seats to stand-by passengers. If you fail to arrive on time for your scheduled departure, then BestBus may allow you to travel on a later bus, if there are seats available, in our sole discretion. However, BestBus is under no obligation to accommodate you if you arrive late. If you do not arrive on the day scheduled for your departure, your ticket will be void, cannot be used later and BestBus will not issue a refund or allow you to reschedule your departure.
  7. Passengers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Children over two or in a car seat must have their own ticket. Children under two and held on an adult’s lap travel free of charge.
