    Additional Information

    Whenever one of our buses makes an intermediate or rest stop, a customer with a disability is permitted to leave and return to the bus in the same manner as any other customer.

    If you are a disabled customer traveling on a bus without a handicap accessible restroom making an express run of three hours or more without a rest stop, and you are unable to use the inaccessible restroom, you may request an unscheduled rest stop.

    Priority seating- The first row of the bus is reserved for customers with disabilities but you are welcome to sit wherever you feel most comfortable.

    Assistance during stops- We are happy to help you with any reasonable request during a stop, such as getting on or off the bus, and retrieving your wheelchair or other device for you. Just ask your driver or customer service agent. It's also a good idea to let your driver know before your trip if you are going to need help during stops as it helps us to serve you better.

    Service animals means any guide dog, signal dog, seizure response dog, emotional support animal, sensory signal dog or any other animal individually trained to assist, work or perform specific tasks for an individual with a disability.
