  1. Legal Identity

The Landline Company (“Landline”) is a Delaware C-Corporation headquartered in Santa Monica, California. Landline’s corporate offices are located at the following address: 730 Arizona Avenue, Santa Monica, California, 90401. Landline is not a direct bus carrier, and instead partners with “Operating Carriers”, a term that is applied to bus operators that transport passengers on Landline vehicles. The Operating Carrier that operates a given segment will be selected by Landline and is subject to change based on any and all conditions and can be done so at the discretion of Landline.

For most operations within the State of Minnesota, services are provided by Lorenz Bus Service, Inc., with DOT number 212866. The address of Lorenz Bus Service, Inc. is 8600 Xylite St. NE, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55449.

  1. Landline Reservations

Pricing. All prices are displayed in United States Dollars (USD). Any displayed fares are inclusive of any taxes applicable to the segment. Landline does not charge any reservation fees associated with booking either via the website or via third party sellers of travel. Landline cannot control booking or reservation fees applied to Landline segments booked by third parties.

Cancellations. Reservations booked with a refundable ticket can cancel their booking at any time and the customer will be entitled to a full refund. In the event that a customer has booked a non-fundable ticket, that ticket cannot be refunded for any amount.

Changes. Reservations booked with a refundable ticket can change their booking at any time and will only be charged the differential in fare. In the event that a customer has booked a non-fundable ticket, that ticket can be changed but the customer will be charged a change-fee of $10.00 USD plus the difference in fare. This fee is subject to change and Landline is entitled to change this fee at anytime in advance of travel.

Passenger Age. Landline passengers must be 18 years or older to make reservations. All children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult (16 years of age or over) when traveling on a Landline operating carrier’s passenger segment. By purchasing travel on Landline the customer is confirming that they are at or over the age of 18 and the passenger traveling is at or over the age of 16 (or has an accompanying adult). Landline reserves the right, but not the obligation, to validate the age of Landline customers to enforce this policy.

Booking Confirmation. It is your responsibility to check that your booking confirmation is accurate. Landline is only responsible for information that was requested at the time of the reservation and provided to Landline. All passengers are required to provide proof of reservation (by providing access to booking confirmation) to Landline. If a Landline or Operating Carrier employee has reason to suspect fraudulent activity as it relates to the Booking, either Landline or the Operating Carrier have the right to refuse travel.

  1. Dispute Resolution

Arbitration. Except as specifically outlined herein, you and/or the relevant Operating Carrier (including any non-affiliated, third-party motorcoach operator referenced above, or otherwise) may elect to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy (collectively “Claims”) by individual arbitration. Such Claims include, but are not limited to, all disputes between the parties arising out of, or in any way relating to: motorcoach services; loss, damage or injury to persons and/or property transported by an Operating Carrier or one of its authorized, non-affiliated motorcoach operators; claims of discrimination; the use of the website and its implementation; and these Terms and Conditions or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof. Except as specifically outlined herein, you and/or the relevant Operating Carrier (including any non-affiliated, third-party motorcoach operator referenced above, or otherwise) may elect to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy (collectively “Claims”) by individual arbitration. Such Claims include, but are not limited to, all disputes between the parties arising out of, or in any way relating to: motorcoach services; loss, damage or injury to persons and/or property transported by an Operating Carrier or one of its authorized, non-affiliated motorcoach operators; claims of discrimination; the use of the landline.com website and its implementation; and these Terms and Conditions or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.

No Trial by Jury or Class Action / Representative Claims. If arbitration is chosen by either party, neither you nor Landline, nor an Operating Carrier(s) will have the right to litigate that Claim in court or have a jury trial on that Claim. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you acknowledge and agree that you and Landline are each waiving the right to a trial by jury to any Claim subject to arbitration.

If either party elects to resolve a claim by arbitration, that claim will be arbitrated on an individual basis. There will be no right or authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, other persons similarly situated.

The arbitrator’s authority is limited to claims between you and the Operating Carrier(s) alone. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless you and the Operating Carrier(s) agree in writing. An arbitration award and any judgment confirming it will apply only to the specific case and cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award.

Arbitration Rules and Process. Claims are to be decided by a neutral arbitrator. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.

A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration on its website. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and the Operating Carrier(s) agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. In the event that you reside outside of the continental United States, the arbitration will be conducted in the county of your departure.

If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Landline submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision is as enforceable as any court order and is subject to very limited review by a court. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Landline will pay all such fees, unless the Arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).

Governing Law.  This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of the State of California.

Exclusive Jurisdiction.  If arbitration is not elected, and an action is brought before a court of law, any such actions arising out of this contract shall be brought exclusively in a state or federal court located in the State of California.

5. Limitation of Liability/Claims

  General. Unless caused  by the gross negligence or willful or wanton behavior of Landline or its employees (which shall not be deemed to include employees of an Operating Carrier or a partner airline), Landline shall not be liable for loss, damage or delay caused by:

(1) The act or default by the passenger;
(2) The nature of the property or defect therein;
(3) An act of God, public enemies, authority of the law, quarantine, perils or navigation, riots, strikes, or the hazards or dangers incidents to a state of war; or
(4) Accidents, breakdowns, bad conditions of roads or other causes beyond the carriers’ control.

(5) Acts that occur before the passenger boards the Landline bus or after the passenger disembarks.

(6) Incidental or consequential damages.

 

Operating Carrier(s) assume no liability for the loss of or damage of baggage caused by Landline in excess of two hundred and fifty ($250) dollars, and then only to the extent of the actual loss or damage sustained caused by Landline, computed on the basis of the actual value of the baggage. Except as provided below, Landline will assume no liability for damage, breakage, deterioration, delay, and/or loss of any article prohibited to be transported on its motorcoaches. Such prohibited articles include any hazardous materials as that term is defined by the US Department of Transportation or any weapons of any kind.

 

Any claim against an Operating Carrier for loss, damage or delay must be filed with Landline within 30 days of the discovery of the loss or damage on which the claim is based, but in no case shall this extend any statute of limitations otherwise in effect. Otherwise, Landline will have no responsibility to pay the claim.

Baggage Liability on Code-Share Trips.  If passengers are ticketed on a code-share flight and their checked baggage is lost, delayed, damaged or destroyed during the portion of the trip operated by Landline, it shall be subject to the following liability limits:  for ticketed trips that do not involve an ultimate destination or origin outside the United States (i.e., are purely domestic), the actual value of the baggage or $3500 per bag, whichever is less; for ticketed trips which involve an origin or destination outside the United States, liability is governed by the provisions of the Warsaw Convention or the Montreal Convention, whichever shall apply, and the limits of Landline’s liability shall be in accordance with the applicable Convention.   In no event shall Landline be responsible for any damages caused before the baggage has been checked in by the passenger, or after the baggage has been delivered to the connecting partner airline, or after it has been returned to the passenger at the end of the journey.

 

In the event of lost, delayed, damaged or destroyed baggage, the passenger should report the matter to Landline personnel within 12 hours after the termination of the land portion of the trip.  If compensation is sought, a written claim must be presented to Landline within 45 days after the initial report was made.  Failure to comply with these procedures will release Landline from liability.

 

6. Passengers with Disabilities

The motorcoaches used by Landline’s Operating Carriers are fully compliant with all applicable ADA requirements and the provisions of 49 CFR Parts 37 and 38.  For passengers ticketed on a code-share flight, the provisions of 14 CFR Part 382 will apply both to the air portion and the land portion of the trip.  Passengers requiring special assistance are urged to contact the partner airline for any necessary arrangements.

 

Traveling in a Wheelchair or Mobility Scooter. Any traveler who intends to travel in a wheeled mobility device is encouraged to book as far in advance as possible. This is important because seating is limited for all passengers, many trips involve multiple carriers and some schedules are reservation only. Landline may not be able to accommodate all customers traveling in a wheeled mobility device and each bus is limited to two passengers traveling in a wheeled mobility device. If you have questions or concerns regarding your travel contact Landline Customers with Disabilities Travel and Assistance at info@landline.com

When you book your trip, make sure you tell us if you’re traveling with a wheelchair or mobility scooter, and if you plan to sit in it during your journey. If you’re booking online, you can select this prior to making final payment for your reservation.  If you select “Travel in Wheelchair,” please email us at reservations@landline.com so that we can confirm availability and provide the best possible assistance. 

All of our buses are equipped with a wheelchair lift to help you get on board. Each Landline bus can fit two passengers sitting in a wheelchair or mobility scooter (we actually remove seats to give you plenty of space). So we suggest you book your ticket as far in advance as possible to get one of the two spots on your preferred journey.

If you want to travel sitting in your wheelchair or mobility scooter, that’s OK with us. If you want to board the bus in your wheelchair and then sit in a regular seat, please let us know and we will stow the device.

The maximum weight and size of a wheelchair or mobility scooter that we can accept are:

  • Weight including the passenger can’t be over 600lbs (272kg)
  • Wheelchair dimensions of 30 x 48 inches (76cm x 121cm)
  • Mobility scooter with dimensions of 30 x 30 x 48 inches (76 x 76 x 122cm)

This is due to the maximum limits of the wheelchair lift. If your wheelchair or mobility scooter doesn’t fit within the dimensions above, it will need to be stored in the baggage compartment underneath the bus.
