Bus Service Offers $1 Trip from D.C. to N.Y.

I recently met some small business owners who were having trouble affording their frequent business trips between New York and Washington so I thought I'd pass along a tip: Have you heard of Bolt Bus?

It's a new budget division of well-known transit company Greyhound that soon will service the 230-mile route between New York City and downtown Washington.

Bolt plans to begin service March 27 and said it will offer several round-trips a day. The crazy low prices, which can be as low as $1 and $7, are built on a supply-and-demand model.

When a day's tickets go on sale, at least one seat will cost $1 with other seats offered at different prices. If seats are starting to sell out, more seats will go up in price until the bus is full.

Each bus is equipped with free wi-fi service and a New York-Boston route is in the works.
