Baggage Allowance on Buses

Taking the intercity bus is easy and so is bringing luggage. As opposed to going by plane, there are no long queues in front of check-in counters. Instead, you can usually simply take your carry-on luggage on board with you and give larger suitcases to the driver for him to store in the luggage compartment of the bus. However, there are some things to consider: What is the maximum baggage allowance? How large or heavy are the pieces of luggage allowed to be? Can I take my wheel chair? What about baby strollers on the bus? If you are looking for the answer to any of these questions, then read on as we have compiled a detailed overview over the luggage policies of several major US bus companies.

What Kind of Luggage can I Bring With Me?

Baggage on the BusThere’s two types of luggage: the one you take on board with you and the one that needs to be stored in specific compartments. It is highly recommendable to store valuable items in your carry-on luggage since they will be safer there. Also, taking you tablet or laptop on board with you, generally makes the time pass much faster. A rule of thumb is that the carry-on luggage should be small enough to fit in the overhead compartment of the bus or under the seat in front of you. So taking a handbag or a rucksack should not be a problem at all. When it comes to larger luggage items such as suitcases or oversized back bags, then they can usually be stored beneath the passengers’ cabin. However, the individual bus companies have individual baggage allowance policies. Whereas on Greyhound Bus, you can only take one suitcase for free, Trailways allows you to take two. Also note the size limits. In general the weight of your bag should not exceed 50lbs. If you have heavier luggage, then some companies allow you to store it in the luggage compartment, but they might charge a specific fee. Some companies like megabus, on the other hand, do not allow oversized or overweight luggage. The same goes for bicycles: Some companies are fine with you taking your bike, while others will refuse it. If your item of luggage is really big or heavy, then you might have to ship it via a bus parcel service, such as the Greyhound Package Express.

Take a look at the following table to find out how much luggage you’re allowed on Greyhound, Jefferson Lines, megabus and Trailways. You should, however, note that some companies, such as Trailways, offer journeys which are conducted by smaller bus operators. So if in doubt, find out who exactly serves the bus connection of your choice and contact them for more info on their respective baggage allowance.

    Wheel Chairs, Baby Car Seats and Strollers

    Wheel chairs, baby car seats and stollers are necessary items, which is why there are specific rules for them. They do not count as oversized/overweight luggage, but can usually be taken on board for free. Taking a baby car seat or a stroller is not a problem with any of the major US bus companies. If you want to take the bus while remaining seated in your wheel chair, then this is usually ok as well. However, note that there’s a standardized weight limit for safety’s sake. The overall weight of the wheel chair and the passenger in it must not exceed 600lbs. If it does, then the wheel chair will be stored in the luggage compartment and the passenger has to refrain to a normal seat on the bus.

    If you want to take the bus as a wheel chair user, then it is necessary to contact the respective bus company in advance. We to do this a few days prior to your desired date of travel in order to make sure that there is still a wheel chair space available. Also make sure to be at the bus stop a bit earlier so that someone can help you with baggage storage or other possible issues.

    What Happens if My Luggage gets Lost?

    In general, every passenger is responsible for their own belongings. This is something that is particularly true for carry-on luggage. Greyhound Bus, for instance, cannot compensate you if your handbag, which you should carry with you at all times, is lost. It is different, however, for luggage items stored in the baggage compartment of the bus. If it gets lost or stolen, you can file a claim. Greyhound Bus Lines and megabus US, for instance, will reimburse you up to a maximum of $250 per adult ticket. If you have bought a child ticket on Greyhound then the maximum compensation is $150. If you travel with valuable items, then you should check whether a luggage insurance is an option for you. Greyhound, for instance, offers this. Should your luggage or parts of it be lost, then you should also contact the bus company directly. Most of the bus companies, like megabus, offer specific Lost and Found offices which try to locate missing items. Sometimes, however, there might be a time limit: Greyhound, for instance, tries to recover your lost luggage for 15 days. Afterwards the inquiry will be treated as a claim for reimbursement.

    Are Animals Allowed on Board?

    Unfortunately, animals are not allowed on board. However, if you are in need of a guide or assistance dog, then you are usually able to take them on the bus trip as well. Make sure, though, that the service animal is properly trained and always under your control. The bus company megabus US, for instance, also demands that service animals be properly harnessed.

    1. Good morning,

      I was wondering if you knew of any buses that would allow me to bring my pet chihuahua with me on board? I am happy to put her in a little carry on box, and to pay for an extra seat. She is a very quiet dog and very well behaved 🙂

      Looking forward to hearing back from you!

      All the best and kind regards,

        Thank you for your message. Where would you like to travel? Unfortunately, the majority of intercity buses don’t allow pets onboard, but some companies like buscenter.it allow pets under specific circumstances. To know for sure what’s allowed, we suggest contacting the bus provider which serves the routes you’d like to travel on directly.

Unfortunately, as of right now, there are no connections for October 6 in our system. As your travel date gets closer, you should be able to see the connections for this date and be able to book your ticket.

    2. Hi,
      I would be traveling with a large suitcase, a rucksack, and a laptop bag. I have a booking in shortline bus through megabus booking portal. On the Megabus booking portal, they specified a restriction of one large bag and a small laptop bag. However, on the shortline bus luggage restrictions, they mentioned 2 large bags and one small bag. Can you suggest which of their restrictions should I consider while traveling. If only one large bag is allowed, would they allow me to travel with the rucksack by charging me some additional monetary compensation?

        Thank you for your message. Please note that CheckMyBus is an intercity bus price comparison portal and doesn’t sell tickets.

    3. On Jefferson Lines between Kansas City and Omaha, am I allowed to check one bag, have one carryon, AND bring a medium-sized purse, or is the purse considered my “carry-on”? If the purse is a carry-on, should I alert them ahead of time that I will have 2 bags to check to be sure they both get on the bus with me?

      1. Dear Bobbi,

        Thank you for your message. Generally, you can bring your purse as a personal item, however this could depend on the size of the purse and the bus provider’s luggage rules. We suggest contacting the bus provider ahead of time to make sure that this is alright and so that they can prepare if need be.

      1. Dear Nicola,

        Luggage policies vary from company to company, but generally you will need to pay extra for luggage weighing more than 25 pounds. We suggest notifying the bus company you plan to travel with prior to your journey so that accommodations can be made and to make sure that you can bring your luggage.

    8. Hi. My question is, if I carry 2 bags of 50lbs each. Will I be allowed to board the bus? Will they be able to accommodate both my bags? How much will it cost?

      1. Dear Karan,

        Thank you for your message. Different bus providers have different policies when it comes to how much luggage they allow. If you’re travelling with more luggage, you can usually bring the extra baggage at a higher fee. In this case, we suggest contacting the bus company before your trip to let them know so that they can make sure there’s enough room on the bus to accommodate the extra luggage. Prices will vary depending on which company you book with.

      1. Dear Lasse,

        Thank you for your message. You should be permitted to bring your golf bag provided it fulfills the National Express and is no more than 20 kg. If the item is oversized, then you will need to pay an £8 or £12 for a round-trip-tour. We suggest contacting the company directly to confirm this is all right to bring with you.

When you click “view deal” on a route in our search engine, you are then redirected to the Wegpage of the bus provider which offers the route. To see whether or not you can transport your luggage, you would need to check with an individual bus provider, such as Greyhound or megabus to see what their luggage policies are and whether or not you can pay an extra fee to have the luggage transported. Typically, if you inform the provider well enough in advance of the trip, it should be alright.

      2. Hello. I am trying to find a bus that goes to Atlanta, GA from New York (Brooklyn or Manhattan preferred). The address I’m going to is supposed to be in Fulton County.
        3540 North Camp Creek Pkwy
        Atlanta,GA 30331
        Even if you don’t go very close to this address, if you have a bus going to DEKALB County, as long as it is close to a MARTA Station, that could be good enough for me.
        There is no rush for me, but I might as well get there whenever your next available bus departs from New York. Please provide cost of return ticket, time(s) departing from New York, etc

        1. Dear Everard,

          Thank you for your message. There are buses from New York, NY to Atlanta in our system that connect to the Civic Center MARTA station.

      1. Dear Kylee,

        Thank you for your message. According to Greyhound’s terms and conditions, you cannot bring plastic or paper bags or have items protruding from your baggage. While there are no specific mentions of totes, Greyhound does offer shipping containers for a small fee (which varies depending on your city and the type of luggage you need stored). For this specific request, we’d suggest directly contacting Greyhound to make sure it’s all right.

    13. I am planning to travel from Gloucester to Tralee by coach. What is the luggage allowance? What are the additional luggage fees? I want to know if my journey would be on the same coach for the entire trip, and if my main luggage can be uploaded in Gloucester and then left until arrival in Tralee? Or does one need to change coach in Bristol, plus off load one´s luggage whilst travelling on board the ferry when crossing the Irish sea?

      1. Dear Helen,

        Thank you for your message. Each coach company has different policies regarding luggage. In the case of National Express, you can bring two medium-sized suitcases or rucksacks which must not weigh more than 20kg each or be longer than 85cm. You can also bring a piece of hand luggage that could be stored overhead or under the seat. Additional luggage can only be brought for domestic journeys within the UK, and extra costs from overweight luggage will vary from case to case. To know for certain how much you can expect to pay in this case, we suggest directly contacting the coach company you plan to book your trip with.

        You will have to make a couple of coach changes during the trip. First, you can travel from Gloucester to Bristol, and then from Bristol, you can travel to Dublin, across the ferry, via National Express. Once you are in Dublin, you will need to book a separate coach to reach Tralee. You will need to transfer your luggage from each transfer to the next coach you’re taking. If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch with us again.

        Thank you for your message. When travelling with Flixbus, you can bring a standard sized bicycle that weights 25kg or less for an extra fee of 9€ per bicycle. We also suggest directly contacting Flixbus prior to your trip to make sure that the driver knows how many bikes to expect on the trip so that they can best accommodate your travel needs.

      1. Hello Lasse,

        Different bus providers have different policies about bringing bicycles on board. Many companies, such as Greyhound, allow folded bicycles and charge them as an extra piece of luggage. To know for sure whether or not you can bring your bike, contact the bus provider you’re planning to book your trip with for that route. If you have any further questions, please get in touch again.

      1. Dear Donna,

        Based on the results from our search engine, two bus providers cover the route from Karlstad to Stockholm – Swebus and Flixbus. Swebus has a policy that bikes are treated as bulky luggage and must be stored in a certain way – the FAQ on their website states that “Bicycles are to be packed with the handlebar rotated a one-quarter turn, and the peddles removed. The air in the tyres is to be reduced or emptied of air.” FlixBus has a bike carrier on many buses, and normally allows bike transport for an additional fee – their FAQ states the following “In many of our buses you are able to bring bicycles of a standard size and without superstructures (max. weight of 25kg) on board. These can be added to your trip during the booking process for an extra fee of €9 per item.”

      1. Dear Mehrdad,

        Thank you for your message. Each bus provider has a different luggage policy, so it’s important that you check with the provider you plan to book your trip with. For instance, if you are booking with Flixbus, you would pay £7 for oversized luggage that is under 30 kg, but you must book the luggage via customer service prior to the trip. If you’re still unsure about the luggage policy of the company you plan to book your trip with, we suggest contacting the provider directly to see if you can book the luggage and what any extra costs would be.

      1. Hi Tina,

        Thank you for your message. Each bus provider has a different policy when it comes to luggage. For example, Greyhound and Jefferson Lines both allow each person to have one piece of luggage (that’s a maximum of 50 pounds) for free, but charges $15 for a second piece of luggage. In this case, you would need to pay the extra fee. Carry-on luggage can be up to 25 pounds and must fit in the overhead cabin. If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch again.

      I m going to buy an amendable and non refundable ticket from Terminal II London to Bristol coach station with National Express. That means 16 p. booking fee incl.

      Is any luggage included in the ticket or I have to “buy” extra???

      1. Hello Marfy,

        Thank you for your message. When traveling with National Express, you are allowed to bring hand luggage which fits into the overhead racks or under the seat. You can also bring one or two medium sized suitcases or rucksacks as long as they are each less than 20kg. The maximum size for free luggage is 70cm x 30cm x 45cm. If you are bringing luggage that is larger than this, you will have to pay extra. If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch again.

    20. Hi my sister wants to take greyhound bus she doesn’t have a suitcase so she wanted to know if she can take a small storage tote that’s less than 62inches as a bag to put under the bus??

      1. Hello Tasha,

        Unfortunately, Greyhound’s baggage policy doesn’t specifically mention storage totes as being an acceptable means of baggage. The policy does state that backpacks, duffel bags and trunks are acceptable however, so the best way to know for sure if storage totes are allowed is to contact Greyhound directly. If this is not the case, note that Greyhound does provide storage containers for a small fee.

      1. Dear Kim,

        If you’re traveling with Greyhound bus service, you’re allowed to bring two pieces of checked baggage. That being said, the 1st piece is free of charge. The 2nd one is free with the Flexible Fare, otherwise it’d be $15. Two bags cannot exceed 100 lbs in total. Besides, you can bring a carry-on baggage up to 11 lbs that fits in the overhead compartment or under the seat.

        For your extra baggage, you’ll need to check it at the Greyhound Package Express counter. Altogether you can ship up to 5 pieces of extra baggage at a discounted price of $35 – $45 each in addition to the ones you’re allowed to take on board.

        Please bear in mind you’ll need to show proof of purchase for your ticket to get the discounted shipping rate. Other than that, it’s only valid when you’re traveling at the same time.

        Should you need any further assistance, feel free to contact us again! CheckMyBus wishes you a safe and comfortable journey!

    22. My luggage feels heavy,but I weighed it and it’s less than 40lbs… does megabus have a scale to check it again?

      Also, can duffle bags be taken on bus as a carry on?

      1. Dear Passenger,

        Please kindly note that megabus allows 1 piece of luggage per reservation that is less than 62 inches (total length + width + heighth) and under 50 lbs. So, in your case, it should be fine.

        As to your second question, you can take a carry-on bag that’s small enough to fit in the overhead compartment or under your seat. For any extra luggage, you’ll need to purchase an extra ticket for additional luggage space on the bus.

    24. Can your luggage be searched by law enforcement if it is stored in the luggage compartment under the bus?

      1. Dear Rebecca,

        Thanks for getting in touch.

        Unfortunately there isn’t enough information available to give you a reliable answer. Although the Fourth Amendment seeks to protect citizens against governmental intrusion, there seem to be no other regulations involving luggage privacy.

        We recommend getting in touch with the operator of your choice to get more specific information.

    25. I’m wanting to travel from heathrow airport to reading with 2 passangers and 2 road bikes . Please advise if there is a bus company who will take bikes and if so what is the maximum packaging size .

      1. Dear Jan,

        Thanks for your inquiry.

        Fixed-frame bicycles are normally not carried on board buses in the UK. Folding bicycles, on the other hand, might be transported depending on available space.

    26. Hi
      I plan to travel from Postojna to Trieste on either 29 June or 30 June. I will have a folding bicycle in a bag and some other carry on luggage. Will that be Ok? Will there be extra costs to pay. How often do the buses run?

      1. Dear Carol,

        Trips from Postojna to Trieste are offered by Baltour and Autotrans. Unfortunately, in general these bus companies do not transport bicycles. However, both of them allow additional luggage if there is enough space. We therefore recommend getting in touch with the companies directly in order to ask whether taking a fold-up bicycle is ok on the trip of your choice.
