Reservation Information
Trans-Bridge Lines is a reservation-based company. This means passengers must book their boarding passes for the exact run, day, and time they intend to travel or reschedule their ticket to the proper run.

With a reservation, passengers have a confirmed seat on the bus run they have purchased travel for.

When traveling under a reservation system, please be aware of these key points and terms of ticket use:
  • Be sure to book the exact run, day, and time you intend to board. If your travel plans change, you will be required to reschedule your boarding pass to the correct run.
  • A rescheduling fee of $2.00 per ticket will be charged for all One-Way and Round-Trip tickets that are rescheduled within 30 minutes of departure. Before that time, there is no fee to reschedule. This fee does not apply to Commuter Passes.
  • Customers with tickets for another run, who wish to board, will be considered standby passengers. Standby passengers are defined as passengers arriving without a ticket, an incorrect ticket, a New Jersey Transit ticket (including Wind Creek), or those who intend to pay a Cash Fare.
  • Standby passengers will have the opportunity to purchase their tickets online via their smartphones if there is seat availability. If there is no seat availability, standby passengers will need to purchase a ticket for the next available bus. They may board the booked bus if a confirmed passenger does not arrive within five minutes of departure. At that time, the driver will scan the existing ticket’s QR code and allow you to board.
  • Passengers booked for any run should arrive approximately 15 minutes early and within five minutes of departure to avoid losing their seat to a standby passenger.
  • If you cannot make your scheduled run, you are expected to reschedule the ticket. One-Way and Round-Trip tickets are valid for the date and time of travel and will become null and void if not used on that date. All tickets are non-refundable and no credits or refunds will be given.
  • Commuters have 16 hours to reschedule boarding passes after a missed run. After that time, the boarding pass will become null and void, as the scheduled run was reserved for you and unused, representing the loss of a sold seat on the bus. No credits or refunds will be given.
  • Commuter Passes will continue to be valid for the same terms of use, depending on the number of trips purchased: 30 calendar days on 10 and 20-trip passes, 33 calendar days on 30-trip passes, 34 calendar days on 40-trip passes.
  • Reservations offer confirmed seating on the bus, but not a particular seat.
Please note: We encourage passengers to book their tickets online when traveling from the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Any tickets purchased at the New Jersey Transit ticket windows at the Port will be considered standby seating until further notice. This applies to passengers traveling to Wind Creek Bethlehem Casino as well.

Do I need to create an account?
Commuters
When purchasing a 10, 20, 30, or 40-trip Commuter Pass online or at any of our Authorized Ticket Agent locations, creating an account is required. This is to the benefit of the passenger in managing boarding passes, making future purchases, and storing payment information for quicker checkouts. Having an account allows you to sign in and schedule each ticket for the day and time you will travel.

We are a reservation-based company. Passengers are required to book tickets for the exact run they will travel on or will need to reschedule to the correct run before being boarded by the driver. The benefit to having a reservation is that your bus run will be confirmed, providing peace of mind that you will have a seat. Having an account will be vital for making changes to your boarding passes in the event your work schedule changes or an unexpected event requires that you arrive or depart at another time or day.

One-Way and Round-Trip Tickets
Creating an account is optional for regular ticket purchases, although we highly recommend it. If you choose not to create an account, you will still need to supply your name and email address in order to track your purchase, if there is a need. You will, however, be prompted to proceed with your purchase as a 'Guest'.

Do I need to print my boarding passes? How do I do that?

Boarding passes do not need to be printed. All boarding passes may be shown electronically on your phone or other devices by signing into your account and presenting the boarding pass with QR code to the motorcoach driver for scanning.

Passengers may also save their boarding pass to their phone by taking a screenshot of their pass and storing it as an image on their phone. When choosing this method, it is extremely important that the QR code is not clipped or the photo blurry. This could result in a failure to scan the ticket and a denial of boarding.

From your smartphone, boarding passes may be added to Apple or Google Wallet. Simply click the black 'Save to Phone' button at the bottom of your boarding pass. If you reschedule a boarding pass, you will need to delete the old one in your Apple or Google Wallet and click the 'Save to Phone' button to add the new one.

If you wish to present paper boarding passes to the driver, you may ask your Authorized Ticket Agent to print them for you. You will need to have your boarding passes scheduled or know your dates of travel for the ticket agent to enter before printing. You may also print your tickets from your home printer by following these steps:

  • Sign into your account
  • Click ‘Sign In’ and enter your email address and password –  If you do not know your password or forgot it, click ‘Forgot Password’, enter your email address, and a link will be sent to you to reset the password. Please note: The emailed link will expire after 24 hours. After that time, you will need to follow the above instructions to receive another link.
