Barons Bus Luggage Policy


Barons Bus Line does not accept checked baggage and expressly disclaim liability for any lost or damaged baggage and for any injuries caused by or resulting from shifting baggage. Passengers must stow and
transfer their own baggage and must keep any carry-on baggage, including any personal belongings, in their possession at all times. Barons Bus Line does not check bags and does not assume any responsibility for the safe and secure transport of bags over any bus routes, including transfers. Baggage must comply with baggage allowances and restrictions as stated in these Terms. Certain items are not accepted for carriage. See Permitted and Prohibited Items in the following section.

Passengers wishing to stow baggage in the under-bus baggage compartment do so at their own risk. Passengers are responsible for picking up their baggage promptly upon arrival and for transferring their baggage from one bus to another during a transfer. Storage charges may apply for any baggage/items left behind. Passengers requiring special assistance with baggage must speak with Bus Operator personnel to make necessary arrangements.

All passengers are required to clearly label all baggage with their name, address and telephone number.

All bags are subject to search, including at terminals and on buses.

In cases where a passenger brings a piece of baggage that they intend to carry onto the bus, but where the piece of baggage is larger or heavier than the dimensions described in this paragraph, then that piece of baggage: (i) must be stored under the bus, and (ii) counts as the one piece of baggage that the passenger is allowed to store under the bus for free, provided all other requirements set forth in the “Storing Baggage Under the Bus & Excess Baggage” section are met. 

Passengers are solely responsible for carry-on baggage during the entire trip and Barons Bus Line shall not be liable for any missing or damaged carry-on baggage. Passengers are required to stow and monitor their carry-on baggage in a manner that ensures that: (i) the safety and proper operation of the bus is not compromised, and (ii) does not inconvenience other passengers. Carry-on baggage should be, whenever possible, stowed in the overhead compartments or placed under the seats directly in front of the passenger.

Carry-on baggage and its contents shall remain in the care of passengers for the duration of the trip and must be monitored appropriately. If any unauthorized access by third parties is observed, the bus driver should be informed.
