TORONTO (Barrio) – Yesterday Flixbus announced their cross-boarder service. This means that you can now jump on their bus from Toronto to New York. Why not? We checked today and it will cost under $80 for one-way.
“Ontario is already one of our best performing markets in North America,” said Pierre Gourdain, Managing Director of FlixBus North America in a press release.
“This is the logical next step, just in time for a very busy summer travel season after two years staying home, everyone is craving affordable, sustainable and shared travel experiences again. High gas prices make FlixBus an even more obvious option,” Gourdain added.
As of yesterday, you can hop on a bus from New York City, at 31st Street and 8th Avenue and head to Toronto Harbourfront. In addition, the bus will have stops in Niagara Falls and St.Catharines. It will also operate five days a week from Friday through Tuesday in each direction.
“Buses will depart on Friday-Tuesday from New York City at 9 p.m. EST and arriving in Toronto at approximately 7:10 a.m. EST, while buses leaving Toronto will depart Friday-Tuesday at the Toronto Harbourfront at 10:00 p.m. EST and arrive in New York City at approximately 7:50 a.m. EST.”
These bus rides may seem long and are over night, but this means there will be little traffic and you can sleep the entire time. Did we mention that the bus comes with Wi-Fi? HUGE WIN.
