FAQs for booking bus tickets to San Jose

Long-distance buses from San Jose typically offer free Wi-Fi for the duration of the trip as well as access to power outlets so you can charge your phone or laptop. The bus seats recline backward, feature a footrest, and have a good deal of legroom to allow for a comfortable ride. Since there are no middle seats, passengers may choose between an aisle seat or a window seat—there is no need to feel squeezed in the middle. During multi-hour journeys, buses stop on a regular basis to allow for stretching and bathroom breaks. If you need to use the restroom before or after those breaks, an onboard restroom can be found at the back of the bus. For passengers in a wheelchair, the buses come equipped with wheelchair lifts to allow for safe boarding and deboarding. Other accessibility requests may be provided by bus staff as well.

Prohibited bags include paper bags, plastic bags, and bags with protruding items. Strollers and car seats are acceptable onboard or stowed under the bus. Bikes, skis, golf clubs, and other specialty items need to be securely wrapped with bubble wrap or stored in a styrofoam or cardboard container. Medications, accessories, accessibility devices, and food and drinks are allowed onboard. Alcohol, guns, explosives, dangerous chemicals, martial arts items, and hoverboards are not allowed.
