OurBus to launch Rockville-NYC bus servicde

OurBus, a crowdsourced tech company operating intercity and commuter bus routes, plans to soon offer service between Rockville and New York City. The company plans to perform a pilot test of the route over Labor Day weekend.

A test of the OurBus website finds an available trip to New York City on Labor Day for $25.00. The departure stop is really on the far edge of what is considered "Rockville," in the Norbeck Road area at the Georgia Avenue Park & Ride at Georgia Avenue and the InterCounty Connector.

OurBus notes that buses will not always be branded "OurBus" (Worldwide Tours & Travel is listed as the charter company for next Monday's trip). The service offers passengers free WiFi, reclining seats, charging ports, free water, "sanitized" on-board restrooms, and no rescheduling fees. Tickets must be purchased online.

  1. This is good news.I've taken one of the other NYC Buses but that one leaves from Union Station which is harder for me to get to.This looks nice.
