"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
August 13th, 2009
Guess where I am! In the comfort of my own home? No. At the library working on some summer homework? No, I should be but I’m not…… I’m on a bus! As I type, my cousin Jen and I are on our way to
We found our way to our bus stop on the corner of 33rd and 7th in front of Sbarros (a pizza place) which is the bus stop for Baltimore and
So we got ourselves into the city this morning and found Sbarros. It was difficult to find the stop but we asked someone and they pointed to this little sign that said “Bolt Bus.” We then asked the group of people standing there if they were taking the Bolt Bus to DC and they were, so we were all set. The bus came right on time and we loaded first since we bought our tickets way ahead of time. They load according to the letter on your ticket: A, B or C so I definitely recommend buying tickets online ahead of time. They have this deal if you sign up before you buy your tickets that when you buy 8 roundtrip tickets you get one free. It’s definitely worth it if you travel on the Bolt Bus frequently.
I read some reviews a few days ago to get an idea of if people liked Bolt Bus and most of them were positive. The bathrooms are apparently very nice (I haven’t checked them out yet) and the seats are comfortable (they are!). The WiFi is working well so far. It’s a little spotty occasionally but that’s understandable for a bus.
If you want to take a weekend trip or just a cheap trip and you like bus travel, try out a Bolt Bus. Cheap, free WiFi and you don’t have to drive yourself (for those you have a license). Bolt Bus is an awesome travel alternative! Go to www.boltbus.com for more information.
