Greyhound, the nation’s largest bus company, plans to begin service at the newly renovated George Washington Bridge Bus Station on Sept. 27. Located at 4211 Broadway in upper Manhattan, customers in Washington Heights and surrounding communities now have a more convenient option for bus travel. This will be Greyhound’s second location in Manhattan, with primary operations still housed at the New York Port Authority Bus Terminal in Midtown.
“We are thrilled to be moving into this newly renovated station and providing riders in the Washington Heightscommunity our best-in-class service,” said Bill Blankenship, chief operating officer, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “We understand public transportation is important to this city, as New Yorkers are extremely mobile and travel frequently. We look forward to expanding our service in New York and offering an extraordinary travel experience at our new, convenient location.”
The new station also will feature several first-class national and local retail shops and services for customers and the surrounding community. While on board, riders will travel in comfort on modern buses with free Wi-Fi, power outlets, reclining leather seats and extra legroom. In addition, the company is adding new buses in the Northeast, which will be equipped with on-board entertainment systems that enable customers to enjoy movies and television shows, play games, surf the Web, and read the latest news – all completely free and all from their own Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, tablets or smartphones.
