CAMBRIDGE, MA– A major winter storm left thousands of travelers in the mid-Atlantic region stranded last weekend as numerous flights and bus schedules were cancelled. With another storm slated to pile on more snow along the east coast today, travelers are once again left in a lurch. Luckily, for bus travelers there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
GotoBus.com, the leading online marketplace for bus tickets, tours and sightseeing activities, has been assisting customers twenty four hours a day with their travel plans throughout this difficult winter weather. Their experienced customer support staff has been diligently helping customers reschedule their travel and reissue new tickets. In addition to live telephone support, customers are also being advised via email and through an online chat system. The most current weather related cancellations are updated in real time on their online Travel Advisory.
During this last storm, seventeen bus operators canceled at least some of their schedules and this week a similar number of cancellations are expected to follow. Because of GotoBus’ close partnerships with over 300 operators, the company is first to receive updates on any cancellations and is able to relay this information to their customers in a quick and effective manner.
