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 bus connections across numerous states in over 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.

They cancelled my bus and refused to work with me on getting a refund for my ticket. The worst costumer service I have ever had!

I booked 2 tickets for my teenagers to travel from Duluth MN to Minneapolis for a 6:45 am trip. It was below zero & there were 6 other people waiting for the bus in a unsheltered area for over a half hour. Not one of them received a notification that the bus had been cancelled. Is Jefferson such an incompetent & lazy company that they don’t have the means to text and/or email their customers when a route is cancelled? I would never use them again.

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.

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.
