Does any travel industry have as many misconceptions as the bus industry? Just mentioning bus travel conjures the idea of cramped, filthy compartments on a rocky trip as you knock knees with someone sitting across from you. That, of course, is a fiction that only exists in the minds of those that have never ridden with us. Here are a few other myths we want to destroy for you about our industry.
MYTH: Buses are overly expensive.
TRUTH: Buses are increasingly cheaper than ever. For a trip from Cincinnati to New York with Ohio Coach, you pay $70. That is less than $7 per hour. Considering the distance and the speed of the route, this is more than affordable and is infinitely cheaper than either flying or traveling by train. The price may seem expensive at first, but the price of travel almost always is. Cost is the most concerning thing to our customers, so us here at Ohio Coach do our best to make sure we keep them low.
MYTH: Buses are uncomfortable and gross.
TRUTH: Comfort is paramount to us here at Ohio Coach. All of our coaches are air-conditioned and feature restrooms onboard for your comfort. Likewise, after every trip, we ensure the cleanliness of every coach. There are only two seats in each row, so it’s not as if you’ll be staring someone in the eye through the length of your trip. Bring a partner along and you won’t feel an ounce of discomfort along the way.
MYTH: Bus rides are just too long.
TRUTH: Ohio Coach’s buses are the fastest in the biz. With no layovers, we get you to your destination as quickly as possible without the need to pay airline-grade prices. You could pay up to three times more for a round trip flight that would get you there in just a few hours, but if you want the best combination of speed and price, bus travel becomes the natural choice.
MYTH: Bus rides are BORING!
Truth: Ohio Coach buses are outfitted with free WiFi on every coach. Whatever activities you like doing online are made even easier with our high-speed internet. Like streaming videos? Like playing games? Then just access WiFi via our app and get started!
