Bus lines: Staying wired on the road
Recently, the bus lines unveiled their next weapon in the war against the airlines: Wi-Fi. All of the bus lines that I mentioned have Wi-Fi installed on their buses, and BoltBus has put electrical outlets on as well, making it possible for passengers to surf the net without wearing down their batteries. In the meantime, riders on all of these buses can do one more thing that airline passengers can't: they can use their cell phones.
Of course, bus lines don't offer snacks, the ride is a little rockier, and they lack the romance of air travel. That having been said, there is no charge for the first piece of luggage, the check-in process is almost instantaneous, and the price is right. Look out, American Airlines!
