From New York city center to Boston city center in airplane Business Class-style comfort, but no airport hassles, and at a reasonable fare—that's LimoLiner.

 


 

Luxury service meant to compete with—and be more comfortable than—the airlines, LimoLiner carries business-class passengers ($49 to $89 one-way) between Boston (39 Dalton Street, in front of the Sheraton Back Bay Hotel (map), and Manhattan (New York Hilton Hotel on 53rd Street just west of Avenue of the Americas; map), with a stop to pick up and drop off passengers in Framingham MA.

Let me emphasize the joy of traveling city center to city center on "your own bus" (which is what LimoLiner feels like). If you're staying in a Midtown Manhattan hotel near Rockefeller Center, or in Boston's Back Bay, you walk to the bus, your luggage is loaded on for you, you show your ID, enter the coach and settle in. No taxi ride to a teminal, no elaborate check-in, no unloading your pockets or taking off your shoes for a tedious security check, no long walk to the boarding gate, then another wait, and more of the same at the other end of your trip.

LimoLiner coaches carry only 28 passengers in comfortable, reserved, reclining leather seats equipped with power outlets, seat belts, and free Wifi Internet (fairly robust in my experience).

Aircraft-style luggage bins above the seats hold your carry-on stuff.

Complimentary sandwiches, snacks and beverages are delivered to you by an attendant, who also offers headsets for enjoying the satellite TV, five channels of music, and a feature-length movie.

The toilets are the best on any bus.

The front and middle of the motorcoach have Pullman-style forward-facing seats with good legroom. At the back of mid-coach are the galley and toilet. In the rear are a two-person and a four-person tables, with facing seats. Behind them is a last row of Pullman seats.

The ride is that of a highway vehicle: mostly fairly smooth, with gentle rocking, but bumps and jolts (like air turbulence) over patched road surface and bridges (of which there are many along the route). It's not perfect for working on a computer, but it's pretty easily possible—in fact, I'm writing this page seated at the small table in the back of a LimoLiner coach somewhere in Connecticut, sipping a cup of hot tea brought by the attendant. I took the photos on this page a minute ago, and I've jus uploaded the page to NewEnglandTravelPlanner.com as we cruise toward Boston.

Located right over the wheels, table seats are probably a bit bumpier than seats in the middle of the coach. I'm enjoying the ride, though: the legroom, the ability to move around, the views, the service, and the fact that I'm not driving!

The 45 minutes of ride near New York City are very bumpy because of the quality of the road surface. In Boston, the bumpy part lasts only about 10 minutes.
