Greyhound Express, one of American's largest bus companies in North America with non-stop service, is growing even bigger. Starting October 31, Greyhound Express will expand to seven new markets, connecting the Southeast to Southwest, and the Midwest to the Northeast.
Greyhound Express, which began two years ago, is already available in 80 markets and has a network of nearly 800 potential direct-service intercity pairs, but they're now expanding even further.
The new routes include:
- Atlanta - Montgomery - Birmingham - Mobile - New Orleans - Baton Rouge - Beaumont - Houston
- Cleveland - Erie - Buffalo
- Dallas - Oklahoma City
There will be four daily round trips on the route from Atlanta to Houston, three daily round trips on the Cleveland to Buffalo route, and one round trip between Dallas and Oklahoma City.
"Greyhound has been able to rapidly grow its Express service since its inception due to our customers' positive response to the higher level of service that nobody else can match in the business. With an average growth rate of more than 20 percent in the markets where we've introduced Express, it speaks volumes to how we have successfully upgraded the intercity bus travel experience," said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound in a release. "As travelers plan for the holiday season, they know that Greyhound Express allows them to visit friends and family at an affordable price while enjoying a fast, safe and comfortable ride."
Tickets for these recently added trips and all other Greyhound Express trips are available at at www.mygreyhoundexpress.com, with fares starting at $1. Those who buy tickets online often get discount prices and tickets can be printed at home or picked up at a self-service kiosk.
Greyhound Express buses are made to make trips as comfortable and convenient as possible. The buses are modern, environmentally friendly, and come with free Wi-Fi, power outlets, leather seats with extra legroom, and reserved seating.
Other Greyhound Express trips include non-stop service between major cities like New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and Calgary, Alberta. Each station offers connecting routes to other destinations.
