BoltBus is a bus line operating in the northeastern United States. It is a 50/50 venture between Greyhound Lines and Peter Pan Bus Lines providing service between New York City and other cities in the northeastern United States,[1] utilizing the existing operating authority of Greyhound Lines (although it is run as a distinct business). Its business model is similar to the Megabus model used by Stagecoach Group, a rival to Greyhound's parent company FirstGroup, in the United Kingdom and in portions of the United States which offer fares starting at US$1.00, depending on how far the trip is booked in advance and how many people have purchased tickets already.[2]

The service is designed to compete with Chinatown bus carriers and Megabus.[3]



The Boltbus network in the northeast radiates from New York City from street stops near New York Penn Station and in Chinatown, although there are different departure points for different lines. Service is currently available from New York City to Washington, D.C. at the 10th and H Streets NW, Baltimore's Penn Station, the Greenbelt Metro station in Greenbelt, MD, Philadelphia at 30th Street Station and suburban Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Cherry Hill Mall, (a highway stop on Route 38), and Boston's South Station.


On each trip, one seat is offered from $1, with most seats sold in the $5-$25 range, via the yield management model.[4] BoltBus operates Prevost X3-45 coaches with wireless Internet access and 120V power outlets on many seats. The carrier claims that their seat pitch is unusually generous. BoltBus also operates a reserve fleet of older MCI 102DL3 buses at peak times.[5]
