Out-of-town buses do not have reserved seating and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend arriving 45 minutes before your scheduled departure time to purchase your tickets, as some purchases can be time consuming. When the ticket office is closed, you may purchase your ticket from the driver as long as you have the exact money.
