If you’re a business traveler tired of planes and trains, maybe you should look at an automobile — of the bus variety. “What’s that?” you may ask incredulously. “You’re actually suggesting that we business-suited captains of industry abandon our glamorous jet-set lifestyles in order to get on board… a bus?” Yes buses, deservedly or not, occupy the lowest rung on the transportation totem pole. But that’s changing for business travelers. — Yahoo Travel
Listen to Bob Weiss’s Business Travel Report on LimoLiner:
There are about as many ways to get from New York to Boston as there are Patriots vs. Giants rivalries. Buses have long been viewed as the “value” option — for better or worse — but one company is changing that.
LimoLiner proves that luxury and buses go well together. With more than 13 years epxerience transporting people between New York and Boston, LimoLiner competes with conventional bus lines and even takes passengers away from Amtrak and the airlines. With LimoLiner, the journey itself is something to be savored.
After decades of flying 747s, it must be a bit of a letdown to be driving a bus. But for former airline captain Paul Shaughnessy, wheeling a high-end motor coach down I-90 is a throwback to his glory days in aviation. He’s an operator for LimoLiner, a shuttle between Boston and New York City that sells itself as combining the best of air and land travel without the hassle.
While I usually opt for the train or (ultra affordable) bus to get to NYC, this trip I went a different route and booked the LimoLiner luxury coach. How could I possible arrive in NYC ready to relax after being packed into a discount bus or dealing with train delays?
LimoLiner announces expanded motor coach service from New York City to Boston with the April 1 launch of 6:45 AM departures Monday through Thursday from Midtown Manhattan.
