Wanderu helps travelers find faster, cheaper ground alternatives.
Wanderu makes it easier to find and book bus and train travel. The site operates on a basis similar to flight-finding and booking services such as Kayak or Priceline, but for alternative modes of transportation. Wanderu currently offers service in North America, allowing users to book travel routes in or between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The site works with popular companies such as Bolt Bus, Megabus and Red Coach, services which offer relatively cheap transportation between cities. There are so many bus and train services throughout North America that it can often be difficult to keep track of which companies you should check prior to a trip. Wanderu checks the majority of them for you.
Wanderu works by having visitors to the site type in a departure and arrival location, as well as travel dates and a number of passengers. The site then searches through hundreds of schedules, routes, and service providers in order to deliver the best route. There are a variety of filters that allow users to narrow a particular search, including cost, company, the amount of time traveled and exact location or station in which a bus or train will arrive. Users can also filter trips by departure or arrival time, allowing for a much more seamless experience. Wanderu is certainly the easiest way to find all possibilities for inter-city bus or train routes in a centralized location. Rather than searching multiple sites to seek out a great deal on your own, it’s much easier to depend on Wanderu.
