Your Ultimate Guide to Luxury Bus Travel

A lot of people associate riding the bus with public transportation that transports you around the city or between cities. If you live in Boston, New York, or Los Angeles, then chances are that you associate bus travel with long lines and cramped quarters. Traveling by coach bus between cities is a very different experience, especially if you book your tickets on with a luxury bus line.

Bus travel isn’t a thing of the past—you can save money, travel quickly to your destination, and enjoy better amenities and customer service than some airlines and trains. For your next inter-city travel, instead of taking a plane or train, why not consider a luxury bus?! With service in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, these luxury buses will help you get to almost anywhere you’re going.
