Can ‘Buses-As-Flights’ Get Americans Out of Cars — And Planes?


- U.S. airlines are beginning to contract with bus companies to run on-the-ground “flights” between nearby cities and advocates are suggesting that the intercity bus should no longer be ignored in the conversation about curbing car and plane dependency. — Tickets for those so-called “buses-as-flights” will be sold exactly as if they were connecting flights, through sites like Kayak and airlines’ own websites, and passengers and their luggage will be ferried directly from their homes to the airport or, in some cases, directly from terminal to terminal on buses branded to resemble American’s off-the-ground fleet.
