Greyhound starts YO! Bus today to fill Boston-NYC Chinatown void
YO! Bus, a discount bus service subsidiary of Greyhound Lines Inc., starts a Boston-to-New York Chinatown route today with six daily round trips. A one-way ticket to New York is priced at $12 to $20 each way, and sold at yobus.com. The buses will feature leather seats, Wi-Fi and power outlets, according to a news release. The website is published mostly in English, with a few phrases in Chinese.
Unlike Greyhound's other discount subsidiary, BoltBus, YO! will drop off and pick up passengers in Chinatown at 2 Pike St., between East Broadway and Division Street. A news release from the company announced New York tickets are sold at INT Travel at 98 East Broadway, according to the release.
YO! will be competing with Lucky Star Bus for the Boston to Chinatown discount bus trade.
YO! Bus service continues to Philadelphia via a New York-Philadelphia route launched in December.
