Without buses, roads would be clogged with cars and ferries would be crammed with desperate sing-along enthusiasts. Give quieter thanks for the wheels on the bus with today's Groupon: for $24, you get one round-trip ticket between Manhattan and Newton or Manhattan and Cambridge from World Wide Bus (up to a $50 value). Pick-up and drop-off locations include the corner of 8th Ave and 31st Street near Penn Station in Midtown-Manhattan, Riverside Bus Station in Newton, and Alewife Bus Station in Cambridge.
World Wide Bus's highly trained, uniformed drivers shepherd passengers between destinations as onboard amenities comfort bodies in motion. Free WiFi lets voyagers keep up with emails and video feeds of left-behind houseplants en route, and depleted batteries soak up power from outlets at each seat. Riders may excuse themselves after draining complimentary bottles of water to use the bus lavatory, and panoramic windows help keep up rousing games of count-the-license-plates. World Wide's fleet is wheelchair accessible and stows luggage safely in oversize bays and overhead parcel racks. Individual seat lights enable cozy, personal reading time, and dozers can adjust their seats to enter the land of nod upright or in a reclined position. World Wide Bus's schedule of trips between its Manhattan, Newton, and Cambridge stops can be found online.
