Travel tip: Wi-Fi-equipped BoltBus from NYC to D.C., Boston, Philly

Got this tip from Dave Zatz of Zatz Not Funny!: BoltBus, a new bargain bus line with routes from Manhattan to Washington, D.C., Boston, and Philadelphia. Buses are reportedly new, comfy, and roomy -- and best of all, you get free Wi-Fi (more than 600Kbps down and 180Kbps up, according to Dave) and power outlets in the seat backs. Ticket prices range from about $25 one-way to -- wait for it -- a buck (if you're lucky). Some reports of spotty service, but overall, sounds like a great deal. (I was thinking of taking BoltBus down to D.C. for Obama's inauguration, until I learned that every last hotel in town is already booked. Oh well.)
