It gets you to New York in a little over four hours, so it’s definitely not Amtrak’s “high-speed” Acela train.
Service includes a meal, and seats are oversized jobs with foot rests. So it couldn’t be an airline.
With gas and tolls, we won’t mention the tally incurred driving yourself to the Big Apple (or the dangers of trying to use a laptop at 70 mph).
Stumped? It’s a luxury bus. The LimoLiner, in fact — the brainchild of Fergus McCann, a frequent business traveler sick and tired of the hassle of getting to the airport, going through security, checking in, fighting for a seat, waiting to be at the right altitude to use his computer (for 30 minutes), and then taking a 40-minute cab ride into the city.
The LimoLiner offers free wireless service, and noise-canceling headphones, in case you want to watch the movie. It even has decent bathrooms with corian countertops. Choose your seats ahead of time — $79 each way. Plus, rather than plunking you down outside the city, it brings you Hilton to Hilton (hotels that is, not Paris to Nicky).
Which makes for one more thing that it isn’t.
Your papa’s bus service.
