Boltbus celebrates first year of service

Posted on April 1, 2009

BoltBus introduced a new travel service between New York and Washington, D.C. on March 27, 2008, and is now celebrating its first anniversary.

 

"For the past year we have safely carried more than 800,000 passengers on BoltBus and have provided an enjoyable customer experience that includes outgoing drivers, a unique set of amenities and a commitment to safety," said David Hall, general manager, BoltBus. "BoltBus has exceeded our expectations and we look forward to expanding to new markets in 2009."

 

The bus service has received two accolades since its inaugural launch a year ago for its outstanding service. Jaunted.com, an on-line pop culture travel guide, voted BoltBus the Best Travel Newcomer of 2008. Budget Travel, a monthly magazine that highlights affordable yet enjoyable travel, gave BoltBus the thumbs up as a travel deal in its February 2009 edition.

 

The service provides onboard amenities such as comfortable seats, extra leg room, free Wi-Fi and power outlets. A loyalty program is available to reward frequent riders with free travel. BoltBus currently operates in New York; Boston; Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
