Greyhound starts bus service in Mexico, with connecting routes to Texas
For the first time, Greyhound has begun bus service within Mexico.
The new route, which launched on Wednesday, links the cities of Monterrey and Nuevo Laredo, and connects to cities in Texas too.
The 101-year-old bus company announced that it has launched 13 daily schedules to cover the approximately 140 miles between Monterrey and Nuevo Laredo, not far from the U.S. border.
Ten additional daily routes link Nuevo Laredo with stops in Texas including Laredo, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. The new service’s longest journey, from Monterrey to Dallas, covers more than 900 miles.
Greyhound said it’s the first time an American inter-city bus company has operated within Mexico.
The services come with new bus terminals in both Mexican cities that will offer free Wi-Fi and electronic charging stations as well as free parking, the company said.
The Monterrey terminal is located at Carretera Colombia No. 031, Colonia Residencial Puerta del Norte; the Nuevo Laredo terminal is at Cesar Lopez de Lara No. 3910, Colonia Anahuac.
Buses on the routes are among Greyhound’s newest, with seat belts in every seat, free Wi-Fi and power outlets, leather seats and guaranteed seating. Promotional fares start at $1 a ticket or 25 pesos, a Greyhound statement said.
