Riding The Bus Instead Of Flyiing And Driving PDF Print E-mail

When making travel plans, consider avoiding being robbed at the pump by the ever-rising, ever-thieving costs of gasoline. For example, you’re planning to go from New York City to Boston. It takes about four driving hours. By the time you’ve arrived, you’ve spent $60 on gas, plus another $25 on tolls and parking.

You can fly for about $115, plus $25 parking and need another $40 for taxi fares, and taking six hours from airport to airport. If you want the best price and convenience, book a bus ride. For instance, between NYC and Boston, some are as low as $17 for the comfy six-hour downtown-to-downtown ride, with no charges for taxi, luggage check and other costs.
