nyc/philly there's two battling companies---good prices. psychotic drivers. that's half the price of greyhound
That's what I used to think, but no! Greyhound's the same price: http://www.greyhound.com/scripts/en/...er/esavers.asp
I think they figured out that everyone was just taking the Chinatown buses instead. I usually head out to NYC on Friday evenings, and return on Sunday evening, so I didn't realize the buses sometimes took longer. I've unfortunately had both SEPTA and NJT trains completely die on me before--once, a SEPTA train died about 2 min outside of 30th St. Station, then the BACKUP train died about 10 min outside of Trenton. That trip took almost 5 hours total. I finished my book early and had nothing to do. I also had to piss on some poor person's fence near the tracks while waiting for the backup backup train. It was snowing. Screw you, SEPTA, screw you.
