Taking care of our customers and employees is our #1 priority. Our team continues to work hard to make sure we are all staying safe together.
To ensure your safety and the safety of those around you, we ask that you do not travel if you:
- are sick
- have recently tested positive for COVID-19 (even if you don’t have symptoms)
- have been around someone in the past 14 days who tested positive for COVID-19 (even if they did not have symptoms)
If you’re already scheduled to travel and meet any of the criteria listed above, see our Travel Flexibility policy below for steps to reschedule your trip.
- All customers, including those who have been vaccinated, are still required by Federal law to wear a mask while on buses, in our terminals, and when you’re boarding, even when we’re boarding outside.
- Masks must also be worn between sips and bites when customers are eating or drinking
- Refusal to wear a mask is a violation of Federal law and may result in denial of boarding or removal from our facilities or buses and passengers may also be subject to penalties
In addition to the federal law which requires all customers and employees over 2 years old to wear a mask, face masks with values or vents, single-layer gaiters, bandanas and plastic shields (by themselves) are not accepted as approved face coverings under the same federal law.
- If you aren’t able to bring your own face covering or if yours is damaged in route, you can ask your driver or one of our other Boltbus team members for a mask and they will be glad to assist.
- Our employees are wearing approved masks in our terminals and our drivers are wearing masks on board while scanning tickets and interacting with customers.
People with disabilities who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, for reasons related to the disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq.) may request an exception in advance and provide proof for the need for an exemption.
If you would like to claim an exemption to the Federal mask law you are required to contact the Greyhound ADA Compliance Department with the following documentation, at least 24 hours prior to travel, at ADA.Support@greyhound.com or 214-777-6050.
You will be required to provide:
Current medical documentation from a qualified healthcare provider which identifies the disability and how the disability prevents you, the passenger, from wearing a mask and whether there is any action that can be taken which would allow you to wear a mask; and,
Evidence of a negative COVID-19 test taken no earlier than five days prior to planned travel.
If you are planning to travel round trip, and the start date of your return trip falls outside the five days since taking your initial COVID-19 test, you will need to apply for a new certificate including producing a new negative COVID-19 test taken in the last 5 days.
You should allow at least 18 hours for your request to be processed. If you have not received a response from the ADA Compliance Department within 18 hours after submission, you may call or email to check on status.
If the request is approved by the Greyhound ADA Compliance Department to travel without wearing a mask, a certificate will be issued which you must provide to Boltbus staff in any terminal and on any bus which you enter without a mask.
Failure to present this certificate and not wearing a mask will result in being removed from the bus/terminal and denied travel.
If you are issued a certificate and travel without wearing a mask you must sit in the front seat(s) designated for customers with disabilities, you also must socially distance in the terminal and on the bus and you may be required to travel on another schedule as designated by Boltbus to allow social distancing on the bus.
