You already know that there are some unsavory stereotypes around the world of buses. Once upon a time, they may have been a fair way to make a decision. But in the modern world we live in, the motorcoach industry has doubled and tripled its innovative efforts, bypassing all old stereotypes and making it a premier form of travel in today’s modern world. Let’s take a look at a few of the myths surrounding bus travel.
MYTH: Buses are overly expensive.
Truth: A five-hour trip with Lucky Star Bus can cost you as low as $5 per hour. With our loyalty program, you can earn a free trip every ten trips you take. We have many different offers and promotions going on through the year, which you can learn about by subscribing to our email newsletter or following our Facebook page. Cost is always the primary worrier in people’s minds, but we here at Lucky Star are doing our best to make it less of a worry.
MYTH: Buses are unreliable and can turn up at any time.
Truth: Lucky Star buses run on a daily schedule. Just take a look for yourself if you don’t believe us. Should you still find that it’s running late, Lucky Star’s staff is waiting and ready to give you up-to-date details on where your bus currently is. Traffic will always be an issue with any form of transportation, but Lucky Star stays as transparent with you as possible as to what is going on with your ride.
MYTH: Bus rides are just too long and too boring.
Truth: Five hours from Boston to New York isn’t that bad, all things considered. But if you still think that’s too long in isolation, we have the perfect solution to your boredom. Lucky Star offers WiFi and movie streaming on every single one of our buses! What’s more, it is absolutely, 100% free! Our movie library has some of the latest blockbusters that you can’t find anywhere else but the theater, and our WiFi is competitive with airline industry standards. Give it a try on your next ride and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
MYTH: Riding the bus isn’t safe.
Truth: There is safety in numbers. And when a group is being transported by a licensed driver that has been trained specifically to transport safe vehicles that undergo rigorous inspection on a regular basis. Buses have never been safer than they are right now and the road is safer for having them.
