Deal Details

Last Edited by Prince_K May 24, 2012 at 11:18 PM
$1 each way between major cities on greyhound by booking 3 weeks ahead (promotional and for a limited time, so hurry). They're promoting their "Express" line which uses the newer buses with leather seats, wifi, more legroom. The "Express" routes don't stop at small towns so you get to your destination faster. They've always had a few schedules a day like this but now they've allocated the new buses to them. For trips closer than 3 weeks out, it's still significantly cheaper than before. However, can't beat one dollar each way!!
For example, you can go between Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, for $1 each way (normal price is $75 San Antonio to Dallas roundtrip). I think they have a certain number of tickets allotted for each price point. When it sells out at a certain price point, it steps up to the next one ($1, $5, $9, $20, etc)

Link for the lazy. [greyhound.com]
Make sure you're using the link and searching EXPRESS schedules.

Yeah I tried multiple dates/locations, not a single $1 fare around. Sketchy.

I don't know. I said limited time because obviously it can't be permanent.

I got the email from them the other day and couldnt find it then either... thought you might know...

but I did punch in a trip from San Antonio to Dallas for about 1 month away.... and it came up as $2.... so it does work for those of you checking out... I did not see it mention 3 weeks in advance... but I also just skimmed the fineprint the other day...

I almost posted it.. but 99% of the time Im late on posting deals after searching... so I just figured someone would have already posted this.... LOL... but it looks like it wasnt posted and I could have been 1st for a change...

Make sure the cities BOTH have word EXPRESS in search. "Dallas Express, TX" is not same as "Dallas, TX". I see lots of $1 dates. Whooo hoo!
