Trans-Bridge Lines said Monday that it is switching to a reservation-based system for its Wall Street routes, effective immediately.
The Bethlehem motor coach company said passengers will have a confirmed reservation for travel date and time for the route. 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.”
The reservation system allows passengers to know they have a seat without having to arrive early and get in line for boarding. The company said when a bus reaches capacity, sales for that route will no longer be open for booking. An additional bus could be added, depending on the availability of drivers and motor coaches.
All routes are scheduled to be converted to the reservation system by the end of the year. Routes that remain first-come, first-serve for now include Allentown to New York, via Clinton, New Jersey, and to Newark Airport.
“Our passengers have complete control in managing their accounts and reservations,” JeBran said. “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 motor coach 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,” he said.
