BoltBus When Greyhound and Peter Pan Bus Lines faced increasing competition from Chinatown bus carriers in the northeast, the companies launched BoltBus as an affordable brand in 2008. The company’s first routes were in the Northeast Corridor before 2012, when BoltBus expanded to the Pacific Northwest with routes between Seattle and Portland, and later Vancouver, British Columbia among other cities in Oregon and Washington. After more success, the company began operations in California in October 2013 with connections between Los Angeles and San Francisco. It’s network in this region also began to grow in time, expanding to cities like San Jose and Oakland. In September 2017, Greyhound became the company’s sole owner after splitting with Peter Pan. BoltBus buses are equipped with WiFi, armrests, footrests, cup holders and 120-volt outlets.
Insider Tips: Try to be fast when booking your trip as BoltBus randomly sells $1 tickets within the first few seats being sold on a bus. This has earned the company’s slogan “Bolt for a Buck.”

Since I could not find a way to change the name on the ticket/boarding pass I called customer service. They wre able to change the name but it cost me $5.00 to simply have a last name changed. Don't think this is a good way to build up customer loyalty. Secondly after I booked the tickets I printed a copy, fortunately. After I closed out the booking I could not find a way to go back to the site and print out another copy. Customer service was willing to do that for a $5.00 charge per ticket. This is not a way to build up customer satisfaction and loyalty. I worked in customer service for almost 40years. I did not try to get every extra dollar I could from a customer when they asked for simple assistance that clearly was not costing Bolt my company anything to help them out.
