Trans-Bridge Lines is expanding its reservation-based system to more routes.
The Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, motorcoach company said passengers on its Wall Street routes will have confirmed reservations for travel date and time.
Trans-Bridge began the reservation system in April on its route between Doylestown and Flemington, New Jersey.
“That conversion went very well, and we are confident that our remaining schedules will transition smoothly as well,” Trans-Bridge Vice President/Treasurer Jim JeBran said. “We are excited to take this next step in providing our passengers with seamless travel.”
Reservations provide passengers with the security of knowing they have a seat on their chosen route without the need to arrive early to save a place in line. When a bus run is full, sales for that route will close or an additional bus will be added, depending on the availability of drivers and motorcoaches.
More tech conveniences for riders
All Trans-Bridge Lines schedules are to move to reservations by the end of 2023. Currently, the Allentown/Clinton/ New York and Newark Airport schedules remain first-come, first-served.
In addition to confirmed seating, the company continues to work closely with its technology vendor, Transcor Data Services, to provide easy online ticketing, quick access to boarding passes, and convenient account management.
“Our passengers have complete control in managing their accounts and reservations,” JeBran says. “They have the ability to store their payment methods and their favorite routes for quick repurchasing, and flexibility in modifying their travel plans. Boarding passes may be presented to our motorcoach drivers by printed or electronic tickets. Electronic tickets may be stored in the passenger’s account, Apple or Google Wallet, or a clear screenshot photo.
“It’s a user-friendly process that allows passengers of all technology comfort levels to easily travel with us.”
