New York, NY, January 04, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- OurBus is thrilled to announce 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 December 21. Texas service will run on Fridays through Sundays, and select weekdays during the 2018 holiday season. For details on fares, bus stop locations and schedules, visit OurBus.com.
"Our roots are on the East Coast, a very saturated and competitive marketplace,” said Axel Hellman, co-founder, OurBus. “Over the last three years, we’ve generated a loyal base of customers, who have crowdsourced travel routes with us, and suggested ways we can improve existing service. Our new service in the northeast reflects all of the positive feedback we’ve received. We are also looking forward to expanding to more locations in Texas, in 2019.”
Additionally, next month, OurBus is 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 crowdsourcing to bring efficient bus service to leisure travelers, students, and families on a budget, OurBus is bucking 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.
It’s not only the destination that’s important, but the experience of riding on OurBus. 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 per ride on 10 intercity purchases, for $49.
