Greyhound Expands E-Ticketing into Select Markets; Customers Can Purchase Tickets Online, Print and Go Straight to the Gate
 
DALLAS (Oct. 2, 2006) – Greyhound now offers travelers another way to take advantage of fares as low as $12 one-way and frequent schedules to cities in the Northeast. E-ticketing allows Greyhound customers to purchase tickets at Greyhound.com, print them and proceed straight to the gate without waiting in line at the ticket counter.

“The e-ticketing program started as a pilot on schedules between Boston and New York and was successful. We are expanding it to several of our largest markets to offer the convenient option to thousands of customers,” said Toby Purdy, chief marketing officer, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “E-ticketing improves the overall experience for our customers, giving them a faster way to buy tickets without waiting in line.”

In addition to schedules between Boston and New York, e-ticketing is now available between Washington, D.C. and New York, Baltimore and New York, Philadelphia and New York, and Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Greyhound passengers in all of these locations also can look forward to the “Elevate Everything” program, another initiative to improve the travel experience, in November.

“Greyhound is elevating the travel experience for customers in select locations in the Northeast, like New York,” said Purdy. “The program features refurbished buses, terminal renovations and new customer service training and uniforms for employees.”
