Leave the NYC-D.C. driving to BoltBus

A new bus line — BoltBus, a subsidiary of Greyhound Lines — beginning service March 27 between New York and Washington will offer tickets for $1 each way for the first four days of service (through March 30). Seats were still available Thursday.

Coaches will offer street-corner service between the two cities eight times daily on new buses equipped with Wi-Fi, power outlets and, on some, leather seats. Tickets will cost from $1 to $25 each way, with the lowest fares going to early bookers. (The company isn't specifying the number of cheap seats per trip.) Online bookings can be made up to six months in advance at Bolt Bus.com or purchased from the driver.
