All Aboard: $1 Bus Tickets to New York
Tripper Bus is the latest discount bus service to offer rides for as little as $1 each way to New York. The bus will begin making the trip Feb. 13. It'll go between Manhattan (34th Street and the northwest corner of 7th Avenue) and Bethesda (7525 Old Georgetown Rd., between Wisconsin and Commerce, across the street from the Bethesda metro station), with continuing service to/from Arlington (near the Rosslyn metro stop on North Moore Street between McDonalds and Burger King).
Cheapest fares will be $1 each way plus 50 cent service fee. Once they sell out, seats will go to $5 and then $10 each way before reaching the regular fare of $25 each way.
The bus will offer electrical outlets and wireless Internet.
Tripper Bus Service is the latest player in a crowded field that includes Vamoose (offers service between New York, Bethesda and Arlington for $25 each way), Megabus.com (offers service between New York and Washington starting at $1 each way) and BoltBus (offers service between New York and Washinton starting at $1 each way).
