On the Rise: Intercity Buses

Megabus Intercity Bus

Last month The City Fix posted a story on a study that found intercity buses to be growing at a rate faster than trains and planes in the last three years. From 2009 to 2010, the number of intercity bus trips (Greyhound, Megabus, Boltbus, etc) grew by 6 percent, while airline trips changed by 3% and Amtrak by only 0.5%.

Intercity buses are fun – just look at classic romantic comedy “If Happened One Night” to see the slapstick hilarity that a bus trip can instigate.
