Greyhound Launches International Ticketing With Grupo Estrella Blanca To Provide Seamless Connections Into Mexico
 
Grupo Estrella Blanca tickets available at Greyhound locations

DALLAS (July 16, 2002) – Greyhound Lines, Inc. now offers Grupo Estrella Blanca tickets at seven new Greyhound international ticketing counters across Texas for customers traveling to Mexico. Grupo Estrella Blanca, the largest bus operator in Mexico with more than 1,800 destinations, provides service into Mexico from five gateway cities: Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa and Matamoros.

“Greyhound recognized the need to provide safe, affordable and convenient connections to customers traveling into Mexico,” said Joe Escobedo, director of business development, Mexico for Greyhound Lines, Inc. “As of result of this new service, our customers are guaranteed a reserved seat on a Grupo Estrella Blanca bus before they arrive at the gateway cities, where they can then continue their trip in Mexico, creating a hassle-free transfer.”

Prior to Grupo Estrella Blanca’s relationship with Greyhound, a customer traveling to Mexico would have to purchase a Greyhound ticket from Dallas to Nuevo Laredo, and then upon arrival in Mexico, purchase a Grupo Estrella Blanca ticket. Now customers will be able to purchase Grupo Estrella Blanca tickets at Greyhound locations

in Dallas, Dallas South, Houston, San Antonio, Laredo, McAllen and Brownsville, Texas, with plans to expand into other U.S. cities by the end of 2002. All ticket agents are bilingual and have been trained to serve customers traveling to and from Mexico.

For more information on how to purchase Grupo Estrella Blanca tickets, contact any local participating Greyhound terminal.
