CAMBRIDGE, MA, February 28, 2007. On February 4, Sunday Edition, The Washington Post featured GotoBus.com, along with Hotels.com, Kayak.com, Mapquest.com and TripAdvisor.com, as the best travel websites.
In particular, GotoBus.com was named the best website in the “Motorcoaches” category, topping grayline.com, greyhound.com and trailways.com. The Washington Post indicates that online travel bookings hit $85 billion last year and this year are expected to account for more than half of all U.S. travel bookings.
GotoBus.com was officially launched at the end of January 2006, replacing IvyMedia.com, to better reflect the core business of the company: selling bus tickets and bus tours online. IvyMedia.com started to sell bus tickets and bus tours since 2002.
Jimmy Chen, President of IvyMedia Corporation/GotoBus.com, is pleased with the recognition from the major US news organization: “Despite of a glitch discovered by The Washington Post, they rank GotoBus.com as the best website in the ‘Motorcoaches’ category. As we are encouraged by this recognition, we will continue to improve our services to provide better value to our customers and travel suppliers.” GotoBus.com is the leading online ticketing company for bus-related travel.
GotoBus is the leading online marketplace for bus tickets and tours. The GotoBus online booking system is similar to those used by major airlines, and makes it easy for travelers to quickly compare schedules, prices, and pickup/drop-off locations for over 100 bus companies throughout the United States and Canada. GotoBus.com is the fastest growing gateway for bus travel on the Internet today.
