    Your review of the Bolt Bus is pretty spot on. I'd go a little further and say it SUCKS. Agreed, the ride is fine, but you are lucky it was only 4.5 hours. I've taken the BB NYC-Boston and Boston-NYC about 12 times and its been under 5 hours MAYBE once.

    Once it was over an hour late because the driver got in an accident on his way to South Station! I mean, come on. We got into NYC over 2 hours late that day. They gave us crappy xeroxed pieces of paper with a phone # on it but they refused to rebook me a ticket because it took me about a week to respond.

    I'd rather spend the extra $2.50 for Peter Pan or Fung Wah and know I'm going to leave on time, even though there's no internet. These people need to get their (*)*&$# together ASAP or people are going to stop taking it again really fast.

    I've taken Bolt Bus for 4 round trip events. 3 times to Boston to NYC and once Boston to NYC and then to Washington DC.

    I found the bus drivers to be great. The ride very comfortable and I love the WI FI. For the most part, I find that the drivers make the NYC trip in 4 - 4 1/2 hours. We did however get stuck in traffic on the DC trip. For the most part, I'm very happy with the service

    LMAO @ the idiot reviewing bolt bus based on a one time event like an accident and his inability to make a phone call.

    Thanks for the review, I'll keep that in mind next time I'm going to Boston, but do you know Bolt has similar service to DC?
