How much will it cost?

You may be able to find fares on certain timed routes for as low as $16, but the average one-way fare on is around $21 – $23. You may also be able to save a few dollars by booking a round trip fare versus one way. Busbud sometimes offers discount or promo codes, so check the website regularly.

What is it like taking the bus vs. flying?

Both Dallas and Houston are busy airports so you’ll be avoiding the congestion in both locations. You’ll save probably a couple hundred dollars between bus fare and what an airline ticket would’ve cost as well. Skip the check in and TSA lines, and no worrying about excess baggage fees and weight on the bus. Sit back in air-conditioned comfort, hop online, and enjoy the scenery along the way. You’ll depart and arrive in each city’s downtown area, saving on time and cab fees to and from the airports as well.
