What You'll Get
Though Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express instantly glamorized train travel, buses didn't come into fashion until years after the publication of her opus The Body Hogging the Window Seat. Add some mystery to your morning commute with today’s Groupon: for $49 you get a 10-pack of one-way commuter-service tickets from the Long Island Transit Bus Company (a $100 value). Buses pick up in Glen Cove and Roslyn and drop off in Midtown and on Wall Street.
The Long Island Transit Bus Company delivers daily commuters to their Manhattan-based places of business without the exasperating stop-and-go of rush-hour driving or shoulder-to-shoulder stuffiness of subway cars. On weekdays, car-owning commuters can park their trusty vehicles at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Glen Cove or Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, and the hoofbound can show up to either spot or the bus-stop-only Glen Cove Road location to board buses bound for Wall Street or Midtown at up to eight morning times. Safety-certified drivers possess the coveted HOV endorsement honor, allowing them to zip happily down carpool lanes past the traffic gridlocked on the expressway. Meanwhile, the onboard free WiFi lets in-transit professionals catch up on Oprah’s final season. Luxury buses boast reclining seats, overhead storage, restrooms, and complimentary views into other commuters' cars. At the end of the day, work-weary travelers climb aboard at their pickup point, fleeing the city as early as 4:45 p.m., or catch up on piles of paperwork and grab the last bus home from Wall Street at 6 p.m. or Midtown at 8 p.m.
