GotoBus.com always works with the bus operators to ensure the safety of all travelers, our foremost priority. We continue to monitor the weather system approaching the Northeast Area.

Winter Storm Jonas is kicking off Thursday with an initial round of snow and ice, and will turn into a major snowstorm Friday into the weekend over a large swath of the East Coast. Heavy snow is expected to fall across parts of at least 15 states, with blizzard conditions possible over parts of the Washington D.C., Baltimore and New York City metro areas. Winter Storm Jonas will also feature strong, possibly damaging winds, significant icing and coastal flooding. Some or all of the largest cities in the Northeast - Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York - will be significantly impacted by this storm with heavy snow and strong winds, bringing travel to a grinding halt, between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning.Winter storm warnings are posted from the Carolinas to the Appalachians, Ohio Valley, Tennessee Valley, Mid-South as far west as central Arkansas. Among the many cities included in warnings are Raleigh, Charlotte, Louisville, Nashville, Memphis and Little Rock. Snow had already developed over parts of the central Plains Wednesday night and Thursday morning. The National Weather Service has posted winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories for parts of Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, far northeastern Oklahoma and Arkansas.
