Enjoying a chartered ride in a spacious bus is a cut above driving yourself and two cuts above pulling yourself in a rickshaw. Take an easier ride with today’s Groupon to Quick Coach Lines. Choose between the following options:
- For $37, you get a round trip from Seattle to Vancouver for dates between Wednesday, November 23, 2011, and Thursday, December 15, 2011 (a $74 value).
- For $37, you get a round trip from Seattle to Vancouver for dates between Monday, January 16, 2012, and Friday, March 16, 2012 (a $74 value).
Offering five daily departures times, Quick Coach Lines ferries guests to northern exposures and back again in coaches culled from its fleet of meticulously cleaned buses equipped with WiFi connectivity (also see here for schedule). Riders assemble at the Best Western Executive Inn in downtown Seattle before boarding a gassed-up Prevost H340 or H345 charter coach replete with 47 seats of lengthy legroom. Guests stow luggage in ample storage areas, pack eyes and ears with in-ride entertainment on video screens, and keep ice sculptures chilled beneath air-conditioning vents as they shatter latitudinal lines on their way to Vancouver-based escapes. On return trips, friendly drivers collect passengers from pickup points including downtown Vancouver, River Rock Casino Resort, and Vancouver International Airport before guiding gas-powered road gondolas southward, motoring toward a friendly welcome from America’s amber waves of grain and ticker-tape parades powered by bald eagles dropping strips of shredded blue jeans. Quick Coach Lines crew members spend a full day cleaning and detailing each motor coach the day before it hits the road, and a team of certified mechanics services and updates the fleet on a regular basis.
Though Quick Coach Lines sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
