New cheap bus service between New York-Boston

Travelers between Boston and New York will soon have another low-cost option.

 

Greyhound Lines is partnering with Springfield-based Peter Pan Bus Lines to launch the "Boltbus." The coaches will offer wireless internet, plenty of leg room and one-way fares as low as $1.

 

The Boltbus will compete with other low-cost carriers such as Fung Wah. Bus companies say dissatisfaction with air travel delays and traffic congestion have an increasing number of travelers turning to old-fashioned bus service as an alternative.

 

Greyhound plans to keep Boltbus fares low by selling most of its tickets online. Company spokesman Dustin Clark says fares will be set at market value but he expects there to be at least some $1 fares for each trip.

 

The Boston-New York service is scheduled to begin in April.

I wasn't like Greyhound wasn't already with Peter Pan. Actually some Peter Pan drivers told me that when they park in the Greyhound lot on 30/31sts, they are to lock the buses and take the keys with them. They do not want Greyhound drivers driving their buses, lol. Guess they will have buses that either driver will use for this joint service.
