  •  Northeast is not so bad (4+ / 0-)

    Honestly, bus travel in the Northeast is common. For those of us dependent on public transportation, the bus is a necessary evil.

    We have one "high-speed" train connecting DC, NYC and BOS that costs nearly as much as air fare. So the next-best way to travel is by bus, especially when going to places without easily-connectible Amtrak service.

    So, in the Northeast, bus travel is not nearly as bad as it is in the rest of the country.

      The line I traveled on was the East Coast to West Coast line.  Most were going west to escape winter, from their discussions.

    •  i take the bus regularly from nyc to boston (1+ / 0-)

      and have never experienced anything like what was described above.  in fact i took it today and my 10 fellow passengers were all students and professionals.  the bus was brand new with wifi and very comfortable seats.  when i took the bus to boston on saturday morning, the bus was completely full and i was seated next to a grandmother who was traveling with her college aged grandaughter and a friend from sweden to spend the weekend sightseeing in boston.

      personally, i think bus travel is the way to go because it is so much better than having 50-60 vehicles on the road.  plus most bus lines are using busses with special exhuast systems that do not pollute like they used to.
