Greyhound brings ‘Express’ service to Lone Star State
On Wednesday Greyhound begins premium service to Texas with added routes between Dallas and Houston. Greyhound is the first company to bring a premium-level, low-fare intercity bus service to Texas.
“Today’s expansion into Texas signifies that Greyhound Express is rapidly becoming the type of service customers prefer, covering four major regions of the United States — Midwest, Northeast, Southeast and South – and also in Alberta, Canada,” said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound. “Last month, we celebrated our one-year anniversary by launching service in Florida. We’re proud nearly 1.3 million customers have experienced this new premium service since it launched. Greyhound Express has proved to be a service that our customers truly appreciate.”
Customers riding Greyhound Express experience modern buses with a guaranteed seat, free Wi-Fi, power outlets, extra legroom and leather seats. Customers can buy their Express ticket online to take advantage of discount pricing, including fares starting as low as $1, and print their ticket at home or pick it up at a self-service ticketing kiosk. Express customers also can relax in private waiting areas with a guest services specialist dedicated to providing an extra level of customer service.
Greyhound Express provides short-distance non-stop or one-stop service originating from major Greyhound service hubs including New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and Atlanta. For those who need long-distance connections, stations along Greyhound Express routes allow travelers to connect to more than 3,800 Greyhound destinations throughout North America.
