Gotobus.com partnered up with Cambridge non-profit organization, bringing awareness to bus riders.
Bus-travel search website GotoBus.com recently announced a new partnership with Cambridge local non-profit organization Green Streets Initiative. The endeavor will hopefully inspire more travelers to choose a sustainable way of traveling, especially for the Boston local communities.
Green Streets Initiative holds a Walk/Ride Day each month, asking participants to change their ways of commutefor a day. As a result, commuters can reflect on the impact of the daily commute on finances, health, and the environment. As their most recent retail partner, GotoBus.com will be offering promo codes to Green Street Initiative active members. Starting from today, participants of Walk/Ride Day can receive a 5% off discount on bus tickets from New York to Boston. The upcoming Walk/Ride Day will take place on Friday, March 29 (sign up here).
Green Streets Walk/Ride Day CelebrationWith the growing trend of eco-friendly commute and green travel, people are more conscious of the carbon emission of daily transportations. According to the 2018 energy report of U.S Energy Information Administration, trains and buses consume only 3% of total energy used by the transportation industry. As a leading bus-ticket booking platform in the U.S, GotoBus.com is dedicated to offering consumers affordable and eco-friendly alternatives for inter-city transportations.
To emphasize on the daily commute by bus, Green Streets Initiative made June Bus Month, during which they will hold several public events for green travel commuters. A breakfast gathering will take place on June 28, 2019, at the Whole Foods Market in Somerville, MA.
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.

New York City is home to some of the best urban parks in the world. Everyone knows about crown jewel, Central Park, but there are countless others located around the five boroughs that are much less crowded. If you’re looking to have a pleasant, low-key day-off, why not grab a basket, a blanket, and a few close friends, and make your way to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, a 585-acre area filled with winding paths and enough tree coverage to make you forget that you’re in one of the busiest cities in the world. Alternatively, in Manhattan’s Bryant Park, you can see a free performance or participate in one of the activities program.
