Greyhound’s super cheap BoltBus service is coming to the Northwest.
Portlanders have another option for trips to Seattle, and this one’s the cheapest yet (cheaper even than Craigslist Rideshares, which seem to average $20). Tickets start at $7 each way, with occasional $1 specials and a frequent buser Bolt Rewards program that gives you a free fare after 8 rides (i.e. 4 round trips).
Portland/Seattle service is set to begin on May 17, 2012. The Seattle stop is at the International District Station at Fifth Avenue South and King Street and in Portland the bus stops at 647 SW Salmon.
