Wow, with the cost of gas right now, this might really be a great thing for some people.
And WiFi too!

What is the catch. This sounds too good to be true.

Sure the fare may be cheap, but what are the taxes, surcharges and fees. This is the same lowball game that arilines played.- they would advertise a very low fare, but hit you with unbelievable fees to backside you with

Come on...one dollar?
You probably have to book one year in advance to get that rate!!
Although paying one dollar to get out of Buffalo sounds great!!

wow... just checked out the site and wow, pretty interesting...

Just did a random Buffalo - Toronto trip for late August... and sure enough $1 there and $1 back. Yeah their is a hidden fee... 50 CENTS! so $2.50 to grab a bus to and from toronto. DAMN!

For $1.50 out of town.. watch the population of our city drop like a rock!

Stop whining about the website, sheesh! It was just on the news so everyone in the city if trying to book their ride!:)

Sounds too good to be true, but ya never know! I go up to Toronto regularly, so this can save me a lot of money on gas as well as aggravation trying to get through traffic on the QEW! I also have friends in NYC so it is win win!

This might actually help boost business at the airport by bringing in people from Toronto to fly out of Buffalo.

It also has the possibility to make it even more appealing to Canadians to come across the border and spend their money at the local businesses.

I'm in the Bus industry. Mega Bus is part of Coach USA which is (has) taken over GreyHound. They run routes like this all over the country.
What this will do is kill the already lucrative Attica/Wendy Prison routes from NYC.
Also, you better book early, and hope you have 40 friends w/you on the trip. HAHAHAHA!!!!!

I just looked for a Friday to Sunday and for 2 people total it's 19.50.

In gas alone it would run us 23.00 PLUS tolls! It's cheaper for us to take this bus than it is to drive!
