The Hipster Express: U Street to Brooklyn Bus!


You’ve seen the Tweets and heard the Google Buzz if you live in the northeast corridor… there is a new bus line in town and they’re here to do battle with the Chinatown busses. This new line is focusing on the hipster crowds in the U Street and Park Slope neighborhoods…  Introducing the KnowIt Express – a cheap and easy way for hipsters to get their Chuck Taylor wearin’ selves to and from NYC without having to ride their fixies up I-95.

Bolt Bus: Nice Seats & Nice Price


Bolt Bus is one of the newer lines to start operating DC to NY and NY to Boston Routes. Sure they are only running 2 routes, but more are in the works. Prices range from $1 (if you buy 2 months in advance) to $21 (if you buy day-of). Bolt Bus has a loyalty program for frequent travelers; every 8 rides earns you one trip. The reason I’ve chosen Bolt over all their competitors (and I’m talking dozens!) is because Bolt has the best service, the best busses, best station locations… and… FREE WI-FI with AC plugs for your computer at every seat! Sold.

Ramble on!
