OurBus Prime Launches Intercity Bus Service from New Brunswick to Washington DC on Monday

Credits: logo

NEW YORK ­­–– After tasting success on popular commuter routes, OurBus, Inc., is determined to change the way people travel intercity with the launch of OurBus Prime.  The Prime services are set to bring comfort and convenience to travellers on North America’s busiest intercity bus route - NYC - D.C, with a stop in Downtown New Brunswick. OuBus will be starting its much awaited Prime bus service from Monday, April 10th.

OurBus Prime will be the first discount intercity bus service to serve the New Brunswick area, offering daily departures to and from Washington, DC, with no intermediate stops.

Axel Hellman, OurBus' transportation planner, states that OurBus Prime is filling a void in the intercity travel market, “Over the past few years intercity bus services along the Northeast Corridor have exploded in popularity.  But even though it’s just 10 minutes from the Turnpike, New Brunswick has been left out.  It’s one of the largest cities between New York and Washington that lacks an affordable intercity bus service - until now.”

A technology startup, OurBus with just 9 months into the business has already etched a name for its impeccable services. Presently, over 3,000 commuters have registered to avail the bus service from their area. The buses have been plying on commuter routes from South Brunswick to New York City, and an intercity route from Northeast Pennsylvania to NYC. OurBus functions on proprietary algorithms that create nearest pick-up and drop-off stops for the customers, thus reducing the commute time and cost by almost 50%.  

Hellman says that "OurBus is making transportation more efficient than ever by connecting intercity and commuter routes together. This makes it possible for us to offer luxury buses to daily commuters and long-distance travelers at an affordable price."

He further added "In cities across the country, local buses take commuters from the suburbs into the city, then return empty.  Meanwhile, empty intercity buses drive into the central city each morning to pick up long distance travelers.  These inefficiencies create traffic and add to the cost of bus travel.  By linking commuter and intercity services, OurBus is making travel cheaper for riders, and creating more opportunities for our partners in the luxury coach industry."

The state-of-art OurBus coaches are equipped with amenities like reclining leather seats and on-board restrooms to provide utmost comfort for long distance travel. For those who like to stay connected with the world, the buses offer complimentary Wi-Fi and individual charging points for the travellers’ devices.

OurBus founder Narinder Singh believes that the company’s cutting edge technology will make the travel experience hassle free. He says “The app-based bus service not only allows users to book their tickets conveniently but also enables them to track their ride. The travellers can share their real-time ETA with their friends and family.” Singh also added that “OurBus is committed to the safety and security of its passengers, thus, user details and tracking information is encrypted”.

Despite the exceptional comfort that OurBus Prime offers, the tickets are highly cost-effective. While one can catch an Amtrak Northeast Regional or Acela train to Washington from Trenton and Metropark, a ticket can cost anywhere from $80 to $200. OurBus Prime tickets start at $16, enabling students, tourists, and business travellers to travel with greater convenience at much lower cost.

However, what truly differentiates OurBus from its competition is their dedication towards providing a pleasant and timely journey for their commuters. To ensure that the safety of the passengers is never compromised, a 15 point maintenance check is carried out each day and no buses older than 3 years are kept in service.  

OurBus is increasingly gaining popularity among intercity travellers as a smarter way to travel. OurBus Prime offers the ideal fusion of modern technology and luxury at a competitive price.

Tickets can be booked at www.OurBus.com

I have had this fascination for local history since I was in elementary school. I would look up any old EB content available online, which was ...
