Worldwide bus travel booking aggregator Busbud today announced a formal partnership with Greyhound to expand transit options for travelers this holiday season.
Busbud announced a $9 million Series A funding round this summer, co-led by OMERS Ventures and Revolution Ventures.
With the addition of 3,800 North American routes from Greyhound, travelers can search and book tickets directly for over 170,000 routes worldwide on Busbud.com. This partnership gives holiday travelers an efficient way to find and book tickets, whether they’re traveling to the next town or across the country.
As the largest bus travel service for global travelers, Busbud now offers one million departures each week, and books bus travel in almost 100 countries. Its easy-to-use site enables customers to compare, select and purchase tickets in their native language and currency, no matter where they want to go.
Busbud currently has over 1,500 operators like Greyhound, each of which undergoes a stringent vetting process to ensure rides are convenient, reliable and hassle-free.
“Busbud aims to be a go-to resource for travelers worldwide, and our new relationship with Greyhound gives customers even greater access to high-quality bus travel in North America,” said Busbud CEO and co-founder LP Maurice.
“Bus transportation is a more affordable and environmentally sound way to travel, and with the massive network Greyhound serves, Busbud customers can arrive home for the holidays even closer to their loved ones’ doorsteps.”
BusBud was named one of Canada’s 15 Companies To Watch by Deloitte in November.
