DALLAS (Aug. 17, 2006) – Travelers tired of waiting to get that super low fare with limited availability on other carriers don’t need to wait if they book through Greyhound. The company is expanding its Web-only eSaver fares to select routes in the Midwest by offering a guaranteed, unlimited $25 eSaver fare between Chicago and Detroit or Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Tickets must be purchased at www.greyhound.com and there is no limit to the number of seats available under the special fare. Fares are one-way, and no advanced purchase is required as customers can purchase tickets up until two hours before their trip. Travel is good for any day of the week at any time. For more information on eSaver fares and the $25 guarantee, visit www.greyhound.com.
“Greyhound has always offered eSaver fares in select markets, particularly in the Northeast, which has been quite popular with customers. Therefore, we are expanding the concept to other regions,” said Toby Purdy, chief marketing officer, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “Since we recently enhanced the travel experience in the Midwest through our Elevate initiative, it made perfect sense to enhance it further by offering the $25 fare.”
The Elevate initiative provides customers with an enjoyable travel experience by improving every customer touch point. Customers can wait in comfortable, clean and modernized terminals, with ample seating, plasma screen televisions and customer service personnel who are on hand to answer any questions customers may have about their trip. Food service and other retail amenities are also available in each location. During their trip, customers will enjoy relaxing on a newly refurbished bus, featuring comfortable reclining seats, air conditioning and an on-board restroom.
Greyhound is the largest North American provider of intercity bus transportation, serving more than 2,400 destinations with 16,000 daily departures across the continent. The company also provides Greyhound PackageXpress (GPX), as well as Greyhound Travel Services including: charters, sightseeing and shore services.
