Newly Discounted Fares and Promotions Keep America Moving for Holidays

DALLAS, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Financial relief is on the way for holiday travelers who are trying to find ways to visit their family and friends this season while still having enough money to pay the bills. Greyhound is rolling out the company's first-ever "Travel Stimulus Package" - new fare specials and deals just in time for the holidays and beyond with no blackout dates. Riders can choose from a variety of discounted fares, which include special friends and family rates, expanded e-fares, and deeply discounted advance ticket fares.

"There's a lot of talk these days about how we can get America moving again and Greyhound is committed to supporting this effort when it comes to travel," said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound Lines, Inc. "Our new 'Stimulus Package' helps make it possible for families to take their vacations, reunite with loved ones and continue their holiday traditions."
