Express bus service to and from Los Angeles is returning to the Las Vegas market this week with the launch of a new Greyhound Express route on Wednesday.
Dallas-based Greyhound Lines, the largest intercity bus service in North America with 3,800 destinations, announced that its Greyhound Express subsidiary will offer five daily express buses to Los Angeles with departures at 5 a.m., 8:40 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 5:10 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. Return trips leave Los Angeles at 12:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 3 p.m. and 10:45 p.m.
The trip takes about five hours.
Buses will have free WiFi and reserved seating. Ticket prices range from $25 to $67.50 one way, with a limited number of discounted tickets offered for $1.
It’s the first scheduled express bus service between the two cities since 2007, when the United Kingdom-based Stagecoach Group offered Megabus service on buses leased from Coach USA. That route lasted only 10 months before ending operations in June 2008 because of lack of ridership.
Lux Bus America also offers express bus service between Las Vegas and Anaheim, Calif.
