GOTOBUS.COM ADDS LINE RUN BUS SERVICE BETWEEN MIDTOWN MANHATTAN AND PHILADELPHIA
January 30, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsCAMBRIDGE, MA, January 30, 2006— Beginning February 1st GotoBus.com will offer direct bus service between midtown Manhattan and Center City Philadelphia. Through its partnership with the bus line P2P Circulator, GotoBus will add 20 daily scheduled departures on this popular route. The non-stopped bus service will have pickup and drop off locations on 31st St near Penn Station in midtown Manhattan and on 11th Street in Center City Philadelphia.
While several operators run low cost bus service to Philadelphia from Chinatown, this is the only discount option available in midtown Manhattan. Pricing between Philadelphia and New York is $15 one way and $25 roundtrip. At $6-15 less than Greyhound’s standard fare, the new service offers a true alternative to Greyhound and Amtrak. Despite the low fares, the new service is not run by a newcomer to the bus industry. P2P Circulator’s parent company is an established charter bus company with a reputation for reliability. The company’s fleet of premium coaches will be maintained at its full service maintenance facility.
