After you have established all the specific costs and policies, you need to consult your account representative regarding all the facilities that will be incorporated in your bus trip.
On the basis of you trip and travelling destination, the facilities on your Portland bus will include a toilet on board, sleeping areas, booth seats, reclining seats, tables and luggage shelves. You can also have all the entertainment you want in the form of television, VCR, CD player and DVD player. Special facilities such as wheelchair admission and allowable alcohol can also be included. To determine the facilities that can and cannot be available during the trip, it is best to consult your account representative.
After you have had a thorough knowledge on the policies, costs and available facilities of the trip, you can pack as per your requirements. Firstly, try to determine your carry-on luggage needs. Apart from your cash, cell phone, credit and debit cards make sure that you pack all the necessary stuff that you may need while travelling by the Portland bus. If you think you will fall asleep during the trip, carry a blanket and a travel pillow along.
