According to their site, “Wanderu.com is the simplest way to find and book inter-city bus and train travel between any two points in North America.”
I came across Wanderu while browsing travel related jobs, and while I don’t really want to move to Boston, or even have the necessary experience for most of their positions, I keep coming back to check out their progress. If you’ve ever tried to travel via public transportation for more than a short taxi or bus ride, you know how hard it can be to nail down a good itinerary. Norway’s public transit works like a well oiled machine, while Greece is hit or miss depending on the island your visiting. I’ve lived in the US for 26 years and am still not confident I could quickly book a bus trip from Fort Wayne to Indianapolis, despite it being a 2 hour drive. Wanderu restored my confidence. Wanderu focuses specifically on bus and train travel. While I typically despise long bus rides, I enjoy a good train ride. America spent decades building trans-national rail lines, it’s about damn time we use them. I have a lot of hope that this app will help streamline process and make North American travel more accessible to more people.
