Mexico bus filter... can't print out my ticket! Am I screwed?
posted by threeants to Travel & Transportation around Mexico (5 answers total)
This morning I bought a bus ticket online (some sort of first-class or luxury bus...the outfit is ADO GL) for tomorrow out of Mexico City TAPO. I bought it using ticketbus.com.mx, not the company's own site. Everything looked fine, but when I went later to print my PDF out, the file is some sort of corrupted 0-byte thing. And it occurred to me now that they never sent anything to my email address.
The website has a 'reprint your boarding pass' form, but when I go through the motions, it keeps taking me to an error message. Though nothing has shown up on my card yet, I am pretty sure the purchase went through, as when I pretend to buy another ticket, it shows the seat I selected as one of the few occupied.
I was able to figure out my 12-digit 'código' by looking at my URL history. If I show up at TAPO with this number, my ID, my seat number, and puppy-dog eyes, will they let me on the bus? I don't really mind if the purchase got botched up and I have to buy a new ticket, but I certainly can't afford two.
