DALLAS – Greyhound today announced it will launch on Dec. 1 a new express service in the Midwest called Greyhound Express™. Customers will experience faster trips with direct and one-stop service between Greyhound’s Chicago hub and Milwaukee, Madison, Wis., Minneapolis, Indianapolis and Lafayette, Ind. Fares start at $1 and are now available for purchase at www.mygreyhoundexpress.com. Greyhound Express will feature brand new buses with reserved seating and onboard amenities, including free Wi-Fi access, extra legroom and power outlets.

“Greyhound recognized the demand for a higher level of service between popular Midwest cities at an unbeatable price,” said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound. “Just in time for the holiday season, Greyhound Express customers will experience time- and cost-savings, a reserved comfortable seat and premium amenities, all while gaining convenient easy access to downtown centers and local attractions.”
