Bolt bus or Greyhound?

We need to get from Seattle to Bellingham to catch the Maritime Ferry. I see that the Bolt bus schedule has a bit better time for us but I think the greyhound bus stops right near the ferry terminal which makes it a better bet. Is this info correct?

thanks

Greyhound shares a location with Amtrak - about a block from the Ferry Terminal. https://goo.gl/maps/80Tr2

BoltBus stop is about 8 miles away from the Ferry Terminal. https://goo.gl/maps/SUj8D

the train stops AT the station which would make it my first choice, however perhaps the times don't work out? Belair charters will also bring you there.

OK, thanks. I just looked at the Amtrak & Belair charter buses (didn't know amtrak had a bus as well as the train) and the times are fine so thanks for those suggestions. So I can definitely cross the Bolt bus off my list if I understand correctly and all three other options (Greyhound, Amtrak & Belair) are located either at or just a block from the actual ferry, right?

Greyhound is a bit cheaper so is there any reason not to pick that one?

amtrak train will stop there but don't think the Amtrak bus will unless you put bellingham in as a station.

Greyhound is cheaper cause it makes a few stops but so does Belair so go with the cheapest. if the times work for you.

In my experience the train is more comfortable than any of the buses. Amtrak Thruway buses don't stop in Bellingham. Amtrak Cascades schedule found here: http://www.amtrakcascades.com/Schedules.htm
