A $1 Bus Ticket to NYC Coming Soon

3/12/2008 12:56:00 PM
This is what happens when I have to travel for work, I miss out on reading important news. I'm reading yesterday's Globe right now and on the front page, there is an article about a new bus service (a division of Greyhound) called Bolt Bus that is going to jump into the low priced Boston-NYC game starting next month.

Their lowest price? One dollar. They're currently serving a route from NYC to Washington and the basic setup is that they promise to offer at least one $1 seat on each bus. The remaining seats on the bus will be higher priced and prices will go up as the bus seats fill up to a max of $25.

Smart marketing? Of course, it got them on the front cover of the Globe afterall. But is it just another bus service? Supposedly not. According to another article I had read previously Bolt Bus is supposed to have more spacious seating, electrical sockets, and free wifi. That would make it amazing - seeing as how Vamoose got their permits revoked and currently isn't doing business in the Boston area.
