Ever since I took the Greyhound bus across America with my father in 1980, I’ve been unable to stand the smell of diesel in the morning. Although our trip was wonderful, there’s something very depressing about the smell of the idling bus. That smoking was allowed back in those days (except in Utah) didn’t improve the onboard situation.
Which makes this new luxury bus between New York and Boston very interesting. It’s just $69 each way, includes television, WiFi/Ethernet Internet connection, and snacks. Takes 4 hours. I can’t imagine that you could get downtown to downtown by plane any faster.
I’m going to be in New York in April, and I’ll need to get to Boston, so I may give this a try. I wonder if the inside opulence will mask the diesel.
