YO!© A New Intercity Bus Service Comes to Washington, D.C. from New York
DALLAS (July 24, 2014) — YO! Bus, a bus line that provides non-stop service to Chinatown neighborhoods in the Northeast, today announced that it will launch new weekend-only service from New York to Washington, D.C., offering four schedules every Friday and Sunday beginning July 25.
In Washington, D.C., YO! customers can conveniently board at Union Station, Gate 7, at 40 Massachusetts Ave., NE. Customers in New York can continue to board at 2 Pike St. between E. Broadway and Division Street. However, the New York location where customers can purchase tickets, ship packages via YO! Package Express and wait comfortably in the spacious waiting area, has relocated to 95 E. Broadway, across the street from the former facility at 98 E. Broadway.
"Since YO! launched nearly two years ago, we've seen a tremendous response from customers and the community, so We're excited to bring this exceptional service to Washington, D.C.," said Mike Fleischhauer, Regional VP, Greyhound Lines, Inc. "YO! offers a unique option for customers who like the convenience and affordability of Chinatown bus lines, and they're able to sit back, relax and know they'll get to their destination safely and on time."
YO! is jointly operated by Greyhound and Peter Pan Bus Lines and offers modern onboard amenities, including free Wi-Fi, power outlets, reclining leather seats, extra legroom and guaranteed seating to ensure that customers stay connected and travel in comfort to their destination. Tickets are now on sale at www.yobus.com.

The name YO! is derived from the pronunciation of the Chinese word that means "to protect" and also serves as an enthusiastic greeting in today's culture.
