NeOn, a new twice-daily bus service from New York to Toronto, launches today with one-way fares starting at $1.
Similar to BoltBus, each bus is outfitted with free Wi-Fi, TVs for DVDs, and power outlets.
The 10-hour trip departs New York’s Penn Station at 8:45 a.m. or 8:45 p.m. daily. The bus drops you off at the Royal York Hotel, about one block from Toronto’s Union Station and two blocks from the shopping on Yonge Street.
NeOn, which stands for New York-Ontario, is a partnership with Adirondack Trailways and Greyhound Canada. Book early or expect to pay the full round-trip (refundable) price of $159 if you buy from a driver. greyhound.com.
