Changes to Our Experience
We’re dedicated to ensuring the highest standards of safety, reliability, and flexibility for all our passengers. To that end, we’ve made some changes to our service to keep you and your loved ones safe while you travel.
We appreciate your understanding, and please know that your safety, and that of our team, continues to guide our decisions around crafting the right experience based on the current environment.
Please review all the updates below before you book your travel with us.
C&J customers are required to wear a face mask, or appropriate cloth face covering over their nose and mouth throughout their travel, aligning with best practice guidelines from the CDC. Plastic face shields may be used in addition to a mask but are not approved mask replacements. Masks or face coverings should be secured to the head with ties or ear loops and should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face to ensure proper fit. Any mask with an exhaust valve is not approved as an acceptable face mask for customers traveling on any C&J bus.
If a Customer is unable to wear a face covering for any reason (even a verifiable medical condition), we regret that we are unable to transport the Customer at this time, due to safety risk of asymptomatic COVID-19 transmission by Customers without face coverings. In other words, because of public health guidance recognizing the important role of face coverings in preventing the transmission of COVID-19, C&J Bus Lines will temporarily refuse to transport any passenger who is unable to wear a mask even if the Customer has a verifiable medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask.
Children under the age two are exempt from the mask requirement.
- Disposable surgical or medical masks
- Cloth masks with tightly woven fabric (2 or 3 ply masks are recommended)
- Valve-free respirator masks (N95 or KN95)
- Fabric masks with a clear plastic window
- Gaiters with two layers (single layer gaiters should be doubled over)
- Plastic face shields or goggles may be worn in addition to a mask but are not approved mask replacements
Masks Not Permitted:
- Any mask with an exhaust valve
- Masks with slits, punctures or holes
- Bandanas, scarves, ski masks, and balaclavas
- Novel and battery-operated masks that do not meet the specifications of the permitted masks listed above
To reduce the spread of germs, C&J will no longer accept ID’s as collateral for northbound Boston travel. All passengers must have a valid ticket to board the coach. Tickets must be purchased in advance of travel, either online or at one of our facilities in Portsmouth, NH or Seabrook, NH in order to board the coach.
Please know – The following C&J locations do not operate a ticket counter are Logan Airport and NYC. If you do not have a ticket, you must purchase your tickets online on your phone while you wait for the coach.
All C&J employees participate in a daily Covid-19 symptom screening and are instructed not to work if they are not feeling well. We recommend our riders monitor their health and reschedule their travel if not feeling well.
Scheduled to travel but don’t feel 100%? We ask that you reschedule your trip to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you. Once you’re feeling better, we’ll be happy to welcome you onboard.
To reduce the risk of transmitting germs, we have eliminated valet parking services. There is free parking available at our Portsmouth terminal and parking at our Seabrook terminal is $2/day. Parking at all locations is self-service. Please allow extra time to park your vehicle upon arrival.
See C&J parking rules, here.
Our buses are equipped with state-of-the-art air filtration systems that help reduce the spread of airborne pathogens.
C&J has enhanced cleaning frequency. Commonly used surfaces in stations such as door handles, counter tops, seating areas and kiosks are cleaned with EPA-registered disinfectants. Our buses are also rigorously cleaned after each trip.
We’ve installed signage in our terminals to help passengers maintain a six-foot physical distance between them and others. There are also clear plastic barriers at customer counters.
Our terminals have all been outfitted with sanitizing stations which we strongly encourage our customers and employees to use regularly.
We have temporarily removed amenities such as bottled water, coffee, and bagels in order to decrease the spread of germs.
We have implemented self-service ticket kiosks at our Portsmouth, Seabrook, and South Station terminals to reduce contact between customers and employees. That said, we always recommend using mobile ticketing.
We’ve made it easy for your travels to be almost entirely touch-free. Riders can book, board, and check their bus status all from their mobile devices. See all the ways C&J makes your travel experience more convenient and contact-free, learn more.
