Angelenos will have a busload of new holiday travel options this year. — the low-cost, express bus service that briefly rolled through Los Angeles in 2007 — will be returning next month with expanded operations across California and Nevada 

Los Angeles will be one of the new West Coast hubs, and beginning Dec. 12, the wheels on the city-to-city bus will go round-and-round from Union Station...

To the following locations: 

  • Las Vegas
  • Oakland
  • San Francisco
  • San Jose 

With the following amenities: 

  • No charge for the first checked bag
  • Free onboard Wi-Fi
  • At-seat power outlets
  • Single and double decker buses
  • Bathrooms
  • Panoramic views

        Travel times will vary depending on day of the week and time of day. Los Angeles-to-Las Vegas, for example, ranges from just over five hours, to just under six and a half hours.
