Literature says Bolt bus fills 50 seats,and wifi, which I expected, allowing for a modecum od SOCIAL DISTANCINGand sime sort of entertainment on the trip. Wekk, no wifion yhe bus, bo explication, just no eifi... At the STOPS in Tacoma and Olympia , additional passengers entered. Enough to fill EVERY SEAT, thus over crowding the bus and NO SOCIAL DISTANCING of any sort, my legs were going numb from lack of movement ( i was ‘fortunate’ enough to uphave a 6 foot 6inch basketball player in the seat next to me.) before we arrived in Portland. the trip was horrible, and i eveb the time and place for departure in seattle is convenient doubt i will ever ride BoltBus again. I am very disappointed
We arrived early and the bus driver kindly let us broad the earlier bus - many thanks
Only one complaint. We were seated at the back of the bus and the toilet smelt strongly of urine for most of the journey.
Apparently the bus before ours never arrived and they loaded us on our bus and the other passengers were still there. On the return trip to Seattle the bus was 45 minutes late and the seat I was in was broken
bus arrived 20 mins late for depart and 40 minutes late on arrival. the driver was unfriendly and unhelpful, just standing by as passengers crawled into the luggage space under the bus to fetch their bags
