Besides the Bolt bus also consider Amtrak . This is the train.. runs 2 x's per day lovely scenic ride ( along the water for a lot as opposed to I5 for bus) and also quite reasonable.

www.amtrak.com --- which includes the Amtrak Cascades train as well as Amtrak busses. If you take the train, you must get to Pacific Central Station about an hour in advance to go through US Customs pre-clearance. Upgrade to business class for a few perks.

You might want to give Bolt a miss if you happen to be Austrailian as the driver "forgot" 5 Aussies from our bus at the border and only realized it when he got a frantic phone call at the stop in Bellingham (true story )
