Chester County residents now have a direct bus connection from West Chester and Malvern to the Big Apple, writes Bill Rettew Jr. for the Daily Local News.
OurBus, which does not operate any buses, will work with independent bus companies to start a twice-a-day, seven-day-a-week service from the corner of Chestnut and High streets. The bus will make several stops in Chester County including West Chester and Malvern, as well as King of Prussia and Fort Washington in Montgomeryy County, before traveling non-stop to New York City.
Among the amenities available in the buses is onboard Wi-Fi with pre-loaded movies, a restroom, reclining seats, charging ports, and free bottles of water. OurBus also offers technology that allows riders to track arrival and departure times.
The $25 round-trip tickets are sold online at Ourbus‘ homepage or through the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
“We’re filling a much-needed gap for people who want to travel to New York City,” said Katherine Kadar, head of communications for OurBus.
