...This is unacceptable and not only do I expect a full refund and then some, I will never ever take this company again. If you look up Bolt Bus reviews on Yelp, you'll see the same thing happened last week! Never thought I'd see the day I wish I'd taken a Chinatown bus!..


...I got a refund for the outbound trip but need to be refunded for my return trip. Reservation Number: 10/12-8469-122919-M11R-1530-SFR-LOS..
