You can now travel so cheaply by bus from Toronto to New York City and here’s how

It’s finally that time of year when travel gets exciting but very expensive. Of course, the summer season always inspires people to explore the world, and it gets tricky on a tight budget, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

FlixBus has announced that starting May 10, you can hop on a bus and travel from Toronto to New York City as they launch their cross-border service.

“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 of staying home, everyone is longing for affordable, sustainable and shared travel experiences again. High gas prices make FlixBus an even more obvious option,” added Gourdain.

Gosh, with gas prices soaring, it seems like a great plan to travel by bus from the Big Smoke to the Big Apple at affordable prices.

If you thought it couldn’t get any better, think again. Have you ever wanted to see your favorite artist perform in Buffalo, especially since concerts in Toronto are always sold out or super expensive?

Well, Flixbus said they plan to launch more cross-border routes between Buffalo and Toronto later in May.

Beginning May 10, 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 has stops in Niagara Falls and St.Catharines. It will also operate in each direction five days a week from Friday through Tuesday.

“Buses depart New York City Friday-Tuesday at 9:00 PM EST and arrive in Toronto at approximately 7:10 AM EST, while buses leaving Toronto depart from the Toronto Harbourfront Friday-Tuesday at 10:00 PM EST and arrive in New York City at approximately 7:50 a.m. EST.”

Even though these are overnight and long journeys, it only means a few things, little or no traffic, you’re basically sleeping all the time, and the bus has wifi so it’s not that bad.
