OurBus Launches Express Bus Service From Westchester County, New York to Boston

Special $10 round trip limited time promotion!

NEW YORK – OurBus, a tech company offering intercity bus service, is expanding to White Plains, New York, with express bus trips to Boston, serving the needs of local leisure travelers, effective immediately.


OurBus identified a critical need for more direct travel options for Westchester County residents to Boston, and is offering express service that will start on Tarrytown Road at the Westchester County Center and drop off in the Back Bay area of Boston, filling a much needed service gap. There are no flights from White Plains to Boston, and Amtrak’s Acela skips New Rochelle, with only the local Northeast Regional making a stop there.

“Up until now, there has been no direct, non-stop transportation of any kind between Westchester County and Boston - even though Boston is one of the top travel destinations for Westchester residents,” said Axel Hellman, co-founder of OurBus. “Historically, the only way Westchester residents could catch a bus to Boston, was to take an hour-long train ride into Manhattan, and catch a bus heading to Boston, which is very impractical,” he said. “This is going to be a transformative service that gives people in the area a quick, convenient alternative to driving.” West Chester to NY

Founded in 2016, OurBus uses analytics and crowdsourcing - fielding requests from existing and potential customers - to determine where to launch new routes.


OurBus has aggressively expanded its presence on the East Coast this spring, with the launch of several new bus services, including Philadelphia to Washington, DC, New York City to Philadelphia, and coming Memorial Day weekend, Newark, New Jersey to Washington, DC (Friday, Saturday and Sunday service).

At the end of May 2018, OurBus is entering into the Florida market, with the launch of Miami to Tampa service, with stops in Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and Sarasota.


OurBus also services the Philadelphia suburbs, with daily, express bus service to New York City, on its Main Line route, stopping at Fort Washington, King of Prussia, Malvern and West Chester. The Main Line, which launched in December 2017, is a cost-effective option for daytrippers, students, families and retirees who want to travel to New York City, in comfort.
