discounts-children

Children

Kids traveling with an adult don't have to pay full price.

Discounts by age:

  • One child under 2 years of age can ride free if they're traveling with someone who is at least 17 years old and don't need their own seat (if they're sitting on your lap).
  • Children under the age of 2 that occupy a seat can get up to 20% off the full fare but must travel with someone who is at least 17 years old. 
  • Kids ages 2-16 get 20% off the full fare when they travel with someone 17 years of age or older. You can get two discount kids tickets for each adult ticket, but any additional kids ages 2-16 traveling with you may have to pay the full fare. Also, all passengers have to be traveling together the whole way (both outbound and return).
  • Children age 17 and older pay full fare. (They grow up so quick, don't they?)

Other things you need to know about using this discount:

  • The discounted children's fare will be valid on Greyhound buses and participating connecting bus companies. But it may not always be available.
  • You can't get the children's discount with any other discount or special promotions.
  • Children won't get discounts on routes to casinos. (Kids gambling is a no-no in our books.)
  • Discounted fares are not available during peak or holiday periods.
