Greyhound has kicked off what it calls a Travel Stimulus Package for the holidays, including half-price bus fares for up to three companions with the purchase of a full-fare ticket.
I immediately checked on prices from Hartford to New York and, indeed, the first fare came up at $58.50 and the next three at $29.25. That’s round-trip, non-refundable, bought at least three days in advance. (A few routes are excluded from this promotion.)
But, wait, there’s more:
In addition to that Friends and Family Companion Fare, Greyhound is offering:
75 Percent Off Advance Purchase Fares: The company will sell 250 tickets a day at 75 percent off the adult walk-up fare, when purchased at least 10 days in advance.
Holiday Bounce-Back Coupons: For all tickets sold in terminals between Dec. 15 and Jan. 5, a coupon will automatically print that will offer customers a 20 percent discount for their next trip between Jan. 6 and March 31.
And, remember, online tickets are priced at a 20 percent discount from adult walk-up fares.
