The price for a seat on the Vamoose Bus starts at $20. In 2010, Vamoose added a new luxury service called the "Gold Bus". The gold bus primarily targets business travelers willing to pay a premium for first-class services i.e. wide leather seats, more legroom, fewer passengers per bus etc. The fare for a seat on the Gold Bus starts at $60.
Tickets must be purchased in advance via the website or by telephone. Upon purchase, passengers are given a reservation number and a printable e-ticket which is also sent via email.
Vamoose maintains a reward program similar to the frequent flyer program offered by many airlines. Vamoose Bus customers enrolled in the program accumulate points corresponding to the amount paid for the seat. Acquired points can be redeemed for free seats on any of the Vamoose Bus schedules.
The buses initially served Tenleytown (near American University) and Downtown Washington, D.C., but in 2006 the company moved the stops outside the District of Columbia, after an injunction was obtained by Washington Deluxe, a competing bus line.
