Planning a cross country trip? Need to get from college to home? Hoping to spend a day gambling or sightseeing? As the economy struggles, people still want to travel but are looking for cost effective ways to get where they're going. Some have found their way past the "Loser Cruisers" and "Smelly Bus." Carriers like megabus.com and Bolt Bus are connecting major cities with brand new, comfortable, internet equipped busses. And they're attracting a different, hipper, clientele than the traditional bus lines. It's an economical and green alternative to driving. Could this be transportation government should get behind?
Wednesday morning at 9 on 90.3.
