Take the bus, redux

Only a week ago, I urged you to "Just Say No" to exorbitant air fares (and ridiculous new fees) by taking the bus whenever possible. One of the bus service providers that I mentioned was Today, TravelZoo announced that is offering promotional fares as low as $1 each way (I assume you might need to plan ahead and play around with dates/times to find these special fares).

And not only that: they are also launching a brand-new double-decker bus for service between NYC and D.C. line, a route I'm very familiar with. The bus will offer video, reclining seats, panoramic views and free WiFi, something you can't get on a plane! If they can just sell snacks and charge for the luggage they store underneath the cabin, then they'll have the airlines beat!
