Greyhound YO! Boston-NYC Chinatown



Greyhound starts YO! Bus today to fill Boston-NYC Chinatown void
New Chinatown bus: YO! Bus, a Greyhound subsidiary, begins running discount bus service Thursday between Boston's South Station and New York's Chinatown.
Can Greyhound fill a void left by Fung Wah Transportation's problems with federal highway safety officials?

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 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.
