Luxury Bus - Travel between New York City and Boston

For a few years now, there has been the LimoLiner bus service at premium prices but at a discount compared to the train and airplane with which it competes primarily with. It is a good alternative, especially for business travelers who don't want to deal with the hassle of the airport or the price of the train. It is also good for the well-to-do who don't like the discount bus experience

It is quite similar to a flying experience in that you can book specific seats, there is an onboard attendent, there are movies showing, and food is served. Extra bonuses though are the power outlets, the wireless Internet, leather seats with 2 arm rests per person, cell-free zones, and clean washrooms. Aside from possible traffic disruptions, this is a good alternative.
