Greyhound Express service to expand to West Coast in May
Greyhound Express, the company’s premium, non-stop service, will expand to the West Coast starting May 2. Next month, Greyhound Express, which launched a little more than a year ago, will expand into California as well as add new routes in Texas, further building on the most recent success of its largest expansion since its inception. Greyhound Express is expanding to 66 new city pairs and 10 new markets. The Greyhound Express network is the largest network of nearly 700 potential direct-service intercity pairs.
Greyhound Express is coming to 10 new markets: Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Bakersfield, Fresno, Modesto, Stockton, Sacramento and San Antonio.
The newest Greyhound Express routes include:
Los Angeles – Oakland – San Francisco
Los Angeles – San Jose – San Francisco
Los Angeles – Bakersfield – Fresno – Modesto – Stockton – Sacramento
Dallas – Austin – San Antonio
Houston – San Antonio
Since introducing Greyhound Express in December 2010 Greyhound has expanded to nearly 70 key markets across North America and has seen an impressive 21 percent increase in overall ridership, with nearly 2.2 million customers experiencing the premium service. Aiming to introduce customers to a wholly new, better travel experience, Greyhound Express combines affordable prices with amenities usually found in more expensive travel.
“Just in time for summer travel planning, Greyhound Express is now available in five major regions of the United States,” said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound. “Families, students and other adventurers who have been hesitant to book travel due to high fuel prices or increased fares on other modes of transportation, can find relief knowing our affordable, premium level of service can now be found coast to coast – something our competitors simply don’t offer. This expansion is a direct result of customer demand and our customers have shown us that they love the value and premium amenities Greyhound Express offers.”
