What You Should Bring
Our riders are encouraged to bring anything they need to make their ride more comfortable. Feel free to pack headphones so you can listen to music or bring a movie to watch, or bring a book to dive into to make the journey pass more quickly. We also offer complimentary refreshments and snacks in our galley, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own snacks! Traveling can work up an appetite, but we ask that you wait to enjoy any larger meals until after your trip.
How Many Bags You Can Bring
If you’re traveling light, we have lots of overhead compartment storage for any small carry-ons you may have. Our coaches also have storage underneath for larger bags and suitcases! Your first two bags are always free, and any additional bags are only $10.00 each. We recommend that you do not stow any breakable or fragile items underneath the coach, as the bags may shift and get jostled.
