Greyhound First Company to go South of the Border

greyhound-bus

Today we read  in the New York Times and we hope some routes will eventually include cities in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

For the first time ever, the intercity bus operator Greyhound has started service to Mexico. The new bus routes, which began operating Wednesday, will include more than 23 weekly departures, and will link terminals in Nuevo Laredo on the border and Monterrey farther south to several cities in Texas, including Laredo, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. Greyhound said it is the first United States company to be granted authority to operate domestic service in Mexico. It will build new Mexican terminals to support the service. New buses deployed on the routes feature free Wi-Fi, leather seats, power outlets, footrests and onboard restrooms.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.-Maya Angelou. La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" my life in the Rio Grande Valley. From this bi-cultural corner on the tip of Texas, I share my poems and spiritual and travel experiences. I also blog about the arts, nature and my passion for historic preservation and architecture. But most importantly, let's talk about "la vida" - living our lives - in a vacation state of mind. Contributions and comments are always welcome .
