    overall, good value. you might lose the WiFi signal depending on where you are, though.

    Middle of nowhere bus stop!

    Nothing!! This bus stop sucks. Too far away from mass transit, no shelter in winter!

  • Abi P.

    Short walk from Penn, food cart close by, ask the staff if you are confused where to stand, lines can go in both directions

    Bundle up during the winter time. It's right by the water ❄️❄️❄️

    No shelter from the elements.

    Ride a CitiBike to 34th and 11th. It'll force you to pack light.

    Bolt Bus consistently has nice working outlets in every seat. This is a huge plus for us who use our phones way too much.

    Walked from Penn Station 11th Ave. It's cold and out of the way. Bundle up. Love the buses though.

    I took Bolt from DC to NYC and return. Great experience! I had a super neat Greyhound bus on both trips. Leather seats, sockets, foot rest, functioning wifi. Comfort far exceeded my expectations!

    Avoid the afternoon as traffic is horrendous. As is the bus bathroom. Avoid at all costs.

    Pro tip: Screenshot your ticket before you get here, as cell service can be kinda finicky with lots of people in the vicinity.

    Sandra Rubinchik · September 1, 2014
  • Ha D.

    Lines to board are always unorganized. More like clumps of people trying to fit in the group A, B and C sections.

    If you value your life you might avoid @BoltBus... My driver is on the phone, texting, shuffling papers, reading schedules, and swerving across lanes at 70mph. BoltBus needs to conduct driver reviews

    Keep walking West. You'll find it eventually!

  • Tiffany S.

    This place is the worst. 1hr -late buses, no communication from staff. Take the train instead.

    Tiffany S · March 1, 2014
  • RICH B.

    Ok so this is waaaay out the way. They need a better system no workers were here announcing anything. No signage! Where's the A boarding area?

    RICH B · February 27, 2014
  • Mahmood

    Book online early, cheap ride, check plug-ins at your seat before sitting down, good service overall!!

    This stop is in the middle of nowhere, it's not even NYC. If it rains or snows, you'll melt.

    here there be monsters

  • Ryan W.

    If they are short on buses they will sometimes use greyhound buses so make sure to look out for bolt bus drivers standing in front of greyhound buses or else they'll leave without you

    Ryan Wiancko · February 20, 2014
  • Katie A.

    It's harder to get to this spot by foot, but it's easier to get on the bus. Particularly on the correct bus. Wish more taxis would congregate around here.

    Katie Allen · January 20, 2014
  • David P. M.

    No longer leaves from 33rd St. & 7th Ave. Now departures are on 33rd St. btwn 11/12th Aves. Big inconvenience and distance from the subway. Arrgghh!

    David P. Martin · December 23, 2013
  • Isa G.

    Not all seats have outlets, or working outlets so be sure to get there early to get a good seat!

    Isa G · December 13, 2013
  • Ralph C.

    Great new spot, much easier to get onto the West Side highway, regardless of it not being near a major station!

    Ralph Conserva · December 5, 2013
  • Michael S.

    Ugh what happened to BoltBus's Penn Station stop?

    Michael Suo · December 2, 2013
  • James E.

    Worst location ever! Might as well be in the middle of the Hudson.

    James Edwards · November 27, 2013
  • antfactor

    Tell Bolt to find a more convenient pickup spot than 11/12th ave... This is utterly annoying.

    antfactor · November 23, 2013
  • Paige P.

    New stop is very inconvenient! Go back to 8th!!

    Paige Patterson · November 22, 2013
  • Madm F.

    You will be late

    Go go gadget bus! Aww come on outlet work pretty please :-)

  • Jamarr M.

    Be sure you're here 15 min before or you better have an A ticket. Otherwise it won't be cute.

    Jamarr Mills · August 23, 2013

    Boltbus should be called Bestbus! Great trip

    Robin Rutherford · August 21, 2013

    on-bus wifi is dodgy. at least don't try to update iPhone apps. process will hang until you turn off wifi, switch back to 3G and then they load normally.

    mjb · August 18, 2013
  • Sarah S.

    Terrible customer service. Refused to let us on and slammed the door on us. Tripper Bus is much better!

    Koreans need to watch out for the old white-haired man who'll give you a sob story about being short cash for bus fare to DC. He'll claim he's a professor that overslept & missed the bus. It's a scam!

    Sandy So · May 20, 2013

    Active doorway is active. Srsly.

    There tends to be tourists on the line who don't understand that seating takes place in sections. Respect the line. But respect the sections too. You paid for it!

    Alexandre Nguyen · May 6, 2013
  • Sarom e.

    show up 30 minutes before departure - yes including the snobby A-class passengers. stay in your seat until the bus departs or risk losing your seat! I've seen it happen. and please no hot foods!

    Sarom eO · April 30, 2013
  • Sarah E.

    aaaand the bus just broke down near Philadelphia 2 hours into the trip. Last time taking Bolt bus.

    Sarah E. · April 27, 2013
  • Corey W.

    Ensure that your bus driver isn't sick, otherwise you'll be waiting an hour for them to find a replacement.

    Corey Whitman · April 5, 2013
  • Jenn

    The worst. Take the train.

    Jenn · April 4, 2013
  • Alexis H.

    Always plan your trip around rush hour and leave on a weekday. Less traffic and more seating!

    Alexis Holzer · February 20, 2013
  • Delaney P.

    Buy early if traveling for a convention. There will be a lot of extra travelers on such days with the same transportation ideas as you.

    Delaney Page · February 14, 2013
  • Jansen C.

    Make an account, buy your ticket under the account, and get an A ticket. Better seats less time out in the cold.

    Jansen Chan · December 23, 2012
  • Rob M.

    Buy your ticket early to get an A seat. Bring food and drink
