Wanna Ride Greyhound? Tell Them in 140 Characters or Less

Travel contest groupies get your witty Tweets ready! Budget Travel and Greyhound Buses have partnered up to give away free round-trip bus tickets via Twitter.

The promotion is part of Greyhound's celebration of its new routes out of New York City to Boston, Montreal, and Toronto along with its plans to replace older buses with new models that have free WiFi, three more inches of leg room, and power outlets for charging all of your travel gadgets.

To win the tix, you gotta join Twitter (duh) and follow @GreyhoundBus and/or @Budtravel. Then you need to post a tweet (in 140 characters or less, of course) talking about how excited you are to try out the new Greyhound buses. Don't forget to include @GreyhoundBus in your tweet along with the hashtags: #NewBus! @BudTravel and the link to BudTravel's post about the contest.

Greyhound will pick one winner each day but only for the next two days. The contest is open to anyone in the US and Canada (except Province of Quebec residents) and the round-trip tickets are good for any Greyhound route in the U.S. and/or Canada. However, you must be 18 years or older. So this is not your ticket to run away from your parents. But running away from the economy is totally acceptable.
