Traveling from the Bronx to Boston? Check out the new bus service
Coach Run understands that going south of city to get into Manhattan, just to catch the bus and then go back north again didn’t make much sense.
They paid attention, listened to their customers’ requests and worked with their team to create a solution that will meet their travelers’ needs and will make them happy. With that in mind Coach Run has added a new bus service from the Bronx, NY
The New Departure Location in The Bronx
Citizens of the Bronx no longer have to deal with the hassle that comes while making their way into Manhattan to catch a bus to Boston.
As you may hear all the time from locals and visitors alike, you don’t really need a car to get around NYC. Well, that’s so true. If you are familiar with the Metro, you can basically get to anywhere in the five boroughs by train.
The new departure location in the Bronx is near Pelham Bay Park Station.
Take the 6 Train Uptown to the last stop of the train which is Pelham Bay Park Station. Once you arrive, get off the train and head south west along Bruckner Express Highway until you meet Middleton Rd. It is only 11 minutes walk considering you are a slow-pace walker like me.
At the intersection, cross the foot bridge to make sure you are on the same side as the baseball field. The specific departure location will be located on corner of the Bruckner Blvd (Baseball Field) – Intersection of Bruckner Bl & Middletown Rd, Bronx NY 10465
What are you waiting for? Get your Bronx Bus Tickets to Boston for as low as $8.

Thinking about traveling by bus? Here are good reasons for choosing bus travel in Europe
1. Environmental friendly travel
One of the good reasons for choosing bus travel in Europe is the distance between cities and to know how close the countries are. For example, you can easily travel from Germany to France to Italy and back north to the Czech Republic in a matter of a few days, and, more important, for a very reasonable fee. Bus travel in Europe is one of the most affordable ways to travel these days, not to mention one of the most environmentally friendly! Because many European cities have very old city centers, modern transportation hubs like airports and train stations were built on the outskirts of these cities. However, buses are able to drive right into the city centers to drop passengers off, meaning that you’ll be able to get off the bus and waste no time in starting your exploration.

Witness the Cherry Blossom & Have the Best Time of your Life in Washington DC
In 1912, the mayor of Tokyo sent a gift of thousands of Japanese cherry trees to Washington, D.C. as a symbol of friendship between the United States and Japan. This gift started the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival, which is, hands down, the best time of the year to visit Washington. At GotoBus.com, this is one of our personal favorite events; we absolutely love the sight of the pink, red, and white flowers from over 1,700 trees all bloom together in a vibrant display. The way the colors of the blossoms play off the quintessential white marble of D.C.’s buildings and monuments seems like a match made in heaven.
When to go
The best time to visit Washington during the festival varies from year to year, a period known as “peak bloom,” when over 70% of the trees have blossomed. This year, peak bloom is expected to fall between March 17th and 20th and for about two weeks, you can see this breathtaking scenery in full. For as low as $15 you can take a New York to Washington DC bus
Are you familiar with any of these places? Discover New Worlds This Columbus Day Weekend!
Discover new worlds this Columbus Day Weekend! Every October, cities across the U.S. celebrate Columbus Day in honor of the famous explorer who kicked off the European Age of Exploration in the Renaissance when he sailed from Spain to the Caribbean, establishing a connection between the Americas and Europe. There’s even a catchy rhyme about Columbus’s journey that most of you probably learned in school at a young age: “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” This year, Columbus Day falls on Monday, October 12th, providing many people across the country with a well-deserved day off, making it a popular getaway weekend.
Have you taken a trip to see the Fall Foliage around the country? Don’t miss out!
Isn’t fall a wonderful time? There’s a certain magic to the way everything seems to change before your eyes. Yes, we know the science behind why leaves turn from green to red, yellow, and orange, but that doesn’t change the fact that it is a truly amazing sight to behold. At GotoBus, we love everything about fall: the changing leaves, the cool breezes, the delicious pies (are you an apple or a pumpkin?). Since the weather isn’t too hot or too cold, we think it’s the perfect time for a weekend getaway to explore the great outdoors and snap some photos of the colorful forests. We have routes to cities all over the country and parts of Mexico at low prices that are good for any budget, and we know the best places to soak up the beauty of Fall Foliage around the country!
