Chinatown Bus Is a passenger transportation company which based in New York City. In the late 1990s a few entrepreneurs in New York’s Chinatown started running buses from Chinatown in NY to Chinatown in Boston.
They are providing Services for less than half of what traditional bus companies were charging and a fraction of what it cost to take the train or fly.
Their target market was Asian immigrants who wanted to shop or visit relatives and needed cheap and convenient transportation.
Although the buses were modern and comfortable, the Chinatown Bus service was bare bones-no advertising, customer service, or bus stations. Customers simply went to the bus stop, waited for the bus, and paid the driver upon boarding.
For those willing to do without frills, these companies offered virtually the same service as Greyhound at a substantially lower price. Before long, word spread about the service and all kinds of travelers started using the service.
It became especially popular with students, budget travelers, or people for whom the service was simply more convenient.
