Jefferson Lines
As the second largest bus company for intercity travel founded in the US, Jefferson Lines operates bus trips all over the Midwest, covering 13 states and featuring hundreds of destinations, such as Minneapolis or Minnesota, where its headquarters is located. It also serves bus stops in Texas, North and South Dakota and many other states. Established in 1919, the bus company has steadily worked on its services in order to offer convenient and inexpensive bus travels. During the economic crisis around 2007, the entire bus service business was stuck in a serious slump and some bus companies shrunk into bankruptcy. In contrast, Jefferson Lines survived the crisis and even took over many bus routes from other competitors, continuing to increase its ridership ever since.

Currently Jefferson Lines offers 1425 bus connections across numerous states in over 333 cities, covering even remote areas like small towns or villages where rail or air services are not available. Additionally, Jefferson Lines has launched 17 college bus connections in five states, serving bus stations directly on campus, which has brought huge convenience to students during holiday and back-to-uni seasons.

Insider-Tips: Jefferson Lines offers several types of discount. Early birds are rewarded at Jefferson Lines: Any passenger who books a ticket 7, 14 or 21 days ahead of departure will benefit from a generous discount of up to 50 % of the total price – no coupon needed. Secondly, families, children under the age of 11, college students, military veterans and seniors over 62 years of age benefit from attractive discounts. Jefferson Lines also provides passengers with a live-update bus tracker service to pass on precise information about the current location of the specific bus. Moreover, some buses are also equipped with unique features like DVD players and XM Radios, resulting in additional entertainment.

So here’s Jefferson Lines for you: Pay $50 for a two-hour trip from Alexandria, MN to Minneapolis, MN, when Megabus charges $38 from Minneapolis to Chicago (9-hour trip) just because no other buses go to Alexandria. Jefferson cancels your trip without giving a reason why with less than 8 hours notice before the trip. Then you can’t get a refund because the ticket was purchased within a week in advance (because my grandma died and I had to pay for it last minute). You would think a company wouldn’t take advantage of people buying non-refundable tickets and cancelling without reason just to eat their money, but here’s Jefferson Lines for ya.

As America's second largest intercity bus company, Jefferson lines has numerous connections all over the Midwest, Central and Western United States serving cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Oklahoma City and Las Vegas.

The first time I rode this bus I was suppose to be picked up in Staples, MN. The bus driver drove right by and when I caught up to it in Wadina he said he stopped but did not see me and "the cashier waved him on", even though there is no check in at this location. Those wheels did not even pause! The second time I rode this bus I was suppose to be dropped off in Staples, MN. The driver never even got off the highway this time because dispatch told him "there is no one getting on at that location so skip it to make up time". I guess it never occurred to them that people have to get off as well, especially if they paid to get off there! I had to make the driver drop me off at a random gas station in Motley, where I had to wait for my grandparents to pick me up. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE! THE TRAIN IS MUCH EASIER AND LESS STRESSFUL! 0/5 stars if I could!

On Wednesday the 28th . talk to the driver of the bus. The ticket dates should have read the 25th and 26th,however, they read 26th and 27th because of the time the trip was put in the computer. The bus driver's trip ticket showed no pickup on the 26th at Iola. I will say everyone of Jefferson employee treated me very nice at all time. Customer service stay calm and nice, even though I was very upset when I talked to them. I will receive a refund for unused portion of trip.

Finally at 4:30 a different bus shows up and moves people to Mall of America. Still no idea when we will get to our destination and nobody can claim responsibility. I would never use this Bus Line.
