This is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buses, as well as trains, have the lowest CO₂ emissions of any city-to-city transportation. Busbud is committed to earth-friendly travel. The more people ride on buses, the fewer cars there will be on the road.

You can see so much more from the vantage point of a bus. Pick a window seat and watch the miles slide. That’s how you get the most out of your travels. Buy your tickets and discover beautiful destinations.

Work while you travel (if that’s your thing). Many carriers offer Wi-Fi, so you can get stuff done during your train or bus travel.

Get a ticket. Sit back and let your driver handle the road. What better place than a bus to listen to music, daydream, or catch up on some sleep?

Busbud. Travel, with a smile.

I bought round-trip bus tickets between two cities in Mexico. The app and the pdf of the tickets didn't list the correct address of the bus station. The app also had a map to the station which was inaccurate. Their customer service was pretty quick to refund us. I'd give the app another try when traveling in the US, but will be careful using it abroad.

I bought a refundable add on for my bus ticket. Little did I know that the bus ticket is only refundable upon very specific conditions in which you cannot travel. On the booking confirmation and the add on option it did not clearly say that the refund option was conditional. I have spoken to multiple people and no one is willing to give me the refund I am kindly asking for. If you have a PURCHASABLE add on that allows refunds, it is ridiculous to have those refunds be conditional and not explici

Hello Aaron, Thank you for reaching out. The Refundable Booking add on is an extra protection in case of cancellation due to injury or illness, as detailed in the terms prior to check out. I can see a Customer Experience Specialist has already contacted you in order to provide one-on-one support. We look forward to helping you!

I had a bad experience. I couldn't easily find the ticket's QR code. There's a button at the end of the ticket details page that doesn't work on my Galaxy S22 Ultra. Additionally, the orange button downloads a PDF file, which isn't easy to manage.
