Why bus travel is growing in the US
Bus travel has been one of the mainstays of travel in the United States of America. It is by far the cheapest mode of transportation and also one of the most frequently used.
It has also grown to become one of the means of transportation for tourists who are looking to experience the scenery and the people of the inner cities of America.
There are some things you can only see and experience about America when you travel by bus.
It has continued to grow in America due to a number of reasons that range from the comfort of the buses, the ease of buying tickets, luggage control and time spent at the park etc.
Bus companies are more flexible with luggage controls. According to Terry Stevens with PartyBusMilwaukee.net, “If there are extra spaces, they will allow you to bring in more luggage unlike the airlines who will charge you an arm and leg.”
With bus transportation, passengers don’t have to arrive at the park 2 to 3 hours prior to departure as you would have done if you were flying to your location.
Many tourists who flock to cities with lots of tourist attractions like San Diego and Kansas City will testify to the amazing experience that they enjoyed during their travel via bus.
Nothing beats the amazing view of city lights and breath-taking landscapes that show the greatness of our great country America.
While flying by plane is usually faster, it is never a great experience especially when you have the option of a road trip with your friends. There are tons of historical and hidden gems hidden on the road.
How do you intend to experience the ‘tourist traps’ if you don’t travel by road? What of the hilarious highway signs that adorn our highway?
The large farmlands and the warm country people?
There is the Geneva on the Lake in Ohio which welcomes visitors into its gorgeous parks and lakeside activities.
The Fayetteville in West Virginia, which offers lots of historical adventure for the community during the rafting season along West Virginia, is another tourist attraction.
Another reason why people find bus travels interesting is that it saves time.
You don’t get to spend so much time for bus travels as you would if you had flown by air. When you travel via bus transportation, you won’t have to contend with waiting in a long queue.
You don’t have to get to the park 2 hours before departure. Most buses have a 5-10 minutes arrival time after which they check you in and then you depart.
There are no unnecessary queues, as well, waiting to be checked in by the agent.
If you factor in the time spent trying to get to the airport, waiting on queues; you’re already looking at 2-4 hours of little to no movement without getting on the plane. If you have no option you can still use an airport limo service to get to and from your destinations.
Bus travel allows you to save on the time that you would have spent waiting in queues at the airport. It makes for a wonderful experience and it is a means of transportation that will continue to grow in most cities in America
