Review of GoToBus Backpacker and Tour Buses in the USA

Our comparison of New Zealand backpacker buses is attracting a lot of attention so I decided to go on and talk about other backpacker and tour buses accross the world.

This time I am presenting you a short review of GotoBus.

Nice selection of REAL buses!

Bus Tickets

Travelling by bus in the USA isn’t that popular because of the big distances and good prices of flights. However there are many reasons why you would prefer travelling by bus especially on short distances:

  • Lower price – almost always
  • Sightseeing
  • No airport security bothering
  • No fear of flying
  • More leg room
  • More comfortable
  • For short distances it can be faster because you won’t lose hours on the airport.

So, what tickets do the guys from GotoBus offer? Well, they go almost anywhere in the USA and the prices are good. For example New-York – Chikago is $220 for a return trip. NY to Atlanta is $175 for return trip, and so on. With buses on the West coast you can go to LA, Las Vegas, just anywhere.

Bus trips can be a great option if you are flying to the USA and staying some time there.

Most GotoBus buses have free wi-fi onboard so you can browse the net while travelling. You should check for your specific destination before booking the bus tickets.
