BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vamoose Bus, the family-owned intercity bus company whose customer-focused business moves more than 5,000 travelers a week between midtown Manhattan and Bethesda, MD and Arlington, VA, inaugurated today its scheduled, first-class Gold Bus service. No other bus company offers this service between New York and the Washington area.
The Gold Bus is like no other bus on the Washington-New York corridor. It features wide-body, “two-and-one” leather seating with extra arm- and legroom, on-board free Internet service (Wi-Fi), 110-volt AC electric outlets and an oversized restroom. It carries only 36 passengers, compared with 55 seats on competing carriers using similar equipment. The Gold Bus’ new luxury Prevost coach now offers a scheduled 9:00 a.m. daily departure from Arlington, with a single pick-up stop in Bethesda at 9:30 a.m., and an estimated 1:30 p.m. arrival near Penn Station, New York.
The Gold Bus also has a scheduled daily departure at 3:00 p.m. from New York at West 31st Street and Seventh Avenue, just across from New York’s Penn Station. Estimated travel time is four hours between New York and Bethesda, with an additional half hour to Arlington.
One-way tickets are $50, with a free one-way ride offered for every four paid trips, so frequent travelers can ride the Gold Bus for an average $40 per trip.
Vamoose assigns an experienced, responsible ground crew to departure and arrival points to help passengers with their baggage or ticketing problems. Vamoose customers never have to wrestle their baggage into and out of cargo holds. Likewise, late-comer passengers have the assurance that their seats will be held for them until five minutes before departure. Any Vamoose passenger who loses his or her seat is immediately given the next available seat for the next departure without additional charge.
Vamoose imposes no travel blackout periods, either. If a traveler has a reservation or a free rewards ticket, it can be transferred to any travel day – even Thanksgiving Weekend – without charge. Visit www.vamoosebus.com
