Do I need reservations for Boston Service?

You can buy bus tickets for Boston service ahead of time but it's not required and seats are not guaranteed.

Reservations are neither needed nor accepted for C&J’s bus service between Dover, Portsmouth, and Newburyport and Boston’s South Station and Logan Airport. Passengers can buy tickets in advance, but advance purchase does not reserve a seat for a particular bus. Travel aboard C&J’s non-reservation service is on a first-come, first-served basis.
