Wow, this one almost makes me cring to post. A couple of years ago I wrote about Greyhound introducing a loyalty program.
At the time I declared I had no interest in joining. And I still haven’t. After all, 16 Greyhound trips and you get… a free Greyhound trip. Ouch. And I cringe at the prospect of flying over 1000 miles in coach. When I come back from Asia, I even huff and puff at 5 hours in domestic first class, having gotten used to the charms of international premium cabin travel for similar stage lengths.
Yet it was only a matter of time before someone came up with a Greyhound mileage run. I’m appalled.
Greyhound started a new bus venture called NEON which has wifi, power ports, etc and goes the New York-Toronto route. See HERE FOR MORE INFO.
There is a $2 r/t price available for mid-week in SEP.-OCT. Play around with the dates and you will be able to find something.
If you do 16 o/w “credits” with them you can get a free r/t wherever the “fly” (somewhat like southwest), so technically speaking for 16 bucks you can get a 200 dollar “ticket” coast-to-coast.
One of the few times I throw my lot in with the refrain of conservatives, “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should….”
