Interstate Transit Services 

Greyhound, Amtrack, Arrow Stage Lines and Burlington Trailways provide interstate transit service. These companies operate a number of regularly scheduled routes in over-the-road coaches, capable of seating 30-55 passengers that follow specific routes. A central, computerized passenger reservation center operates to ensure that complete information concerning bus station locations, fares, schedules and reservations is available from a single location.
