Low-cost BoltBus expanding service to Bellingham

BoltBus, a nationwide bus line with one-way fares that start at $1, announced it plans to offer service to Bellingham along its route from Seattle to Vancouver, British Columbia, starting Oct. 4.

The new service will include four daily round trips in either direction, with additional service on weekends. Tickets are available at BoltBus.com.

The bus service, a division of Greyhound Lines Inc., was founded in 2008. It first entered the Pacific Northwest in May with service between Seattle, Vancouver and Portland.

The company plans to operate in Bellingham out of the Whatcom Transportation Authority’s Cordata Station at 4170 Cordata Parkway.

BoltBus utilizes a unique fare system. One-way fares begin at $1, plus a booking charge. Fares are later adjusted based on market demand. Passengers who purchase tickets early get the lowest fares.

The company’s loyalty program, Bolt Rewards, allows riders who make eight trips to be eligible for a free one-way ticket.

BoltBus coaches include amenities such as leather seats, extra leg room and free Wi-Fi.
