OurBus, a tech company specializing in crowd-sourced intercity and commuter bus routes, is expanding service in the Northeast and Texas, with service launching in Rochester, N.Y. to New York City; Washington, D.C. to Pittsburgh; Clifton, N.J. to Washington, D.C.; and new express service from Washington, D.C. to New York City.

Additionally, OurBus announced permanent service in Texas, based on the success of the company’s entry into the region with pop-up routes serving university students, leisure travelers, and local residents during the Thanksgiving 2018 travel rush.

Service from Austin to Dallas and Dallas to Houston is starting on Dec. 21. Texas service will run on Fridays through Sundays, and select weekdays during the 2018 holiday season.

Next month, OurBus is also launching service from Washington, D.C. to Norfolk, Va. based on the success of a pop-up route launched during Thanksgiving. Stops will include several in Virginia, including Fredericksburg and Williamsburg.

By using crowd-sourcing to bring efficient bus service to leisure travelers, students, and families on a budget, OurBus veers away from the traditional bus service model, which utilizes a point-to-point network concept, recognizing that travelers need reliable and efficient transportation that’s close to their home, with less transfers, and less time in the car. Each bus comes equipped with free bottled water, Wi-Fi, reclining seats and individual charging ports.

The company is now offering the OurBus Select Membership program, targeting students, frequent travelers, and families on a budget. Members will receive 15% off of 10 tickets, for $49.
