Buses are already a cheaper, greener mode of transportation than cars, and Greyhound is taking the next step to convince riders that they are the coolest travel option - in more than one way. The company just introduced their new fleet of state-of-the-art buses boasting engines that are more fuel-efficient than ever and, as long as buses are full, generate significantly less carbon dioxide per passenger than even a hybrid vehicle.
Besides the eco-friendly stuff, Greyhound has made many other improvements: free wi-fi, outlets for laptops and cell phones, and more legroom at every seat. No scrunching or security lines? Count us in!
There's a small catch, though. You can currently only hop aboard one of these fancy new buses on a handful of frequently traveled Eastern Seaboard routes that compete with commuter plane flights. But the buses are coming to other Northeast cities soon (and eventually, we hope, to the rest of the country ).
