DALLAS (March 1, 2007) – Greyhound Lines, Inc. today announced it is dropping fares to select cities while making strides to improve the customer travel experience. Greyhound passengers in select cities can take advantage of new lower fares while riding newly refurbished buses and visiting renovated terminals.
These changes are part of the “Elevate Everything” program designed to improve the entire customer travel experience, which the company continues to implement at major locations across the country.
“Greyhound has a long history of providing affordable travel,” said Steve Gorman, president and CEO, Greyhound. “In a time of increasingly expensive travel costs, we are continuing our tradition of low-cost, convenient transportation. At the same time, we are working hard to make sure our customers enjoy their travel experience with Greyhound by improving every customer touch point.”
The “Elevate Everything” program, launching in the Midwest today and featured at more than 50 additional Greyhound locations nationwide, includes newly refurbished and clean buses, terminal upgrades, new employee uniforms, enhanced customer service and a new greeter position to help customers with questions. According to Gorman, the entire system is expected to see these improvements by this Thanksgiving.
