Find answers to some frequently asked questions below:


Can I reserve seats for my trip? Where can I sit?

It goes without saying that you will always get a seat on our buses.

Depending on the trip, either any place on the bus can be reserved or only certain rows. For certain buses, we do not offer seat reservations. Please check your ticket for your seat reservation. If you have not reserved a seat, but have been assigned a seat on your ticket, please sit in this seat. You will find the seat numbers in dark grey at eye level on the hand baggage compartment. If you have not reserved a seat and have not been assigned a seat on your ticket, then you are free to choose a non-reserved seat with a green sticker. If a reservable seat is available, it could still be booked by someone later on in the trip. For this reason, please only sit in a free seat that is not reservable and is labelled with a green sticker. For a journey consisting of two rides with an automatic connection, you will only have to pay once for the seat reservation and will get the cheaper seat reservation for free.


How do I recognize my seat on the bus?

Depending on the trip, either any seat on the bus can be reserved or only individual rows. On some of our buses, seat reservations is not available.

If you have reserved a specific seat, you will find your seat number on your ticket. Buses that allow seat reservations will indicate the seat numbers at eye-level along the overhead baggage compartment.

If you have not reserved a seat, but have been assigned a seat on your ticket, please sit in the indicated seat.

If you have not reserved a seat and have also not been assigned a seat on your ticket, you are free to choose any non-reserved seat labelled with a green sticker. In this case, we recommend getting on the bus as early as possible to get a desired seat. Of course, passengers with limited mobility will be given preferred seating.


I booked a transfer connection. Do I have to pay double for a seat reservation?

No, the price for a seat reservation for transfer connections is based on the longest trip segment or highest selected seat category. You can find all the prices here.


Adding, changing, and cancelling seat reservations

You may make a reservation only while booking. At this time, you may not add a seat to your booking after the ticket has been booked. If you would like to cancel or change your seat, please click here.
