Tips for Riding the Highway Bus


  • You may be able to buy a book of tickets for a cheaper price at a nearby convenience store, supermarket, city hall--ask around!
  • Buses usually have storage space underneath for oversize luggage as well as space above the seats for carry-on bags.
  • Triple check bus times, especially for less frequent routes. Line up early so you're guaranteed a seat.
  • Some buses may require you to pay when you board, others require a prepurchased ticket.
