Greyhound Express Celebrates Its Birthday by Heading Down to Florida
Greyhound used to do their thing without too much fuss or competition, but once new options like BoltBus and MegaBus arrived on the scene things certainly started to change. About a year ago the old standby introduced their “Greyhound Express” service, and things must have gone pretty well—they’re now expanding things into the Sunshine State.
Utilizing their hub in Atlanta, the $1 fares and free on board WiFi is heading down to Florida. Cities like Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, and Fort Lauderdale will all be getting the Greyhound Express treatment, plus there’s even a new option heading to and from Fayetteville, North Carolina. The power outlets and extra legroom start rolling as early as this week, and the tickets are already available for purchase. Sure it’s not as quick as flying, but it’s certainly less of a hassle and the savings might just boost your Spring Break budget.
In total there’s now around 45 different markets and areas being served by the upgraded Greyhound 2.0, and hubs include spots like New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Calgary—that’s in Canada. You know we're already fans of travel by bus—in moderation of course—so make 2012 the year to check things out for yourself.
