    is it? I've never been brave enough to take it, just been at Amtrak stations while greyhounds load and unload. frankly, if greyhound is expensive, i have no idea why people would use that over amtrak, flying, or just plain driving.
    Haha... I meant for me an extremely poor student.. It was like $29 for a 2.5hr journey.. whereas I was able to get $1 seat on megabus from philadelphia to NYC. It isn't very scary but could work out expensive. This summer I paid around $70 for travel between cities (excl. internal travel).

    Hartford, CT ---> Boston
    Boston ---> Hartford, CT
    Hartford ----> NYC
    NYC ---> Philadelphia
    Philadelphia ---> NYC
    NYC ---> Washington
    Washington ---> NYC

    I think there was more journeying somehow but can't remember, maybe the price was a bit less. This is still much less than by Greyhound.

    I also used NJtransit which was $10.50 to New Brunswick... so pretty good..

    I think people like Greyhound because they don't know any different. :p:

    Open Jaw or Multi City tickets are great. I paid £340 out of LHR to LAX then returning from Newark to LHR

    When were you travelling? We're probably just going to stay on the West Coast now (I know big change!), and can't find return flights in July to LA any cheaper than £560!
