do you know where the pick up and drop off spots ARE?  (couldn't easily find it on site)

Drama Mama: Happy New Year! It's not at South Station, per se.
LAZ parking on Albany Street across from AC Hotel. In NY it's a lot on the corner of 31&8. Both are clearly marked.

I hadn't heard of this company before today but a friend of mine took them to Philadelphia this morning and said they were great.

Not sure I'd use them in the U.S. with Greyhound fares being so cheap but I've used Flixbus in Europe a couple of times and had no problem with them. Using them again twice in March, Budapest to Bratislava and Bratislava to Prague. Fingers crossed.

Am a Greyhound Rewards member for several years and there is no comparison. The Flix buses on Boston-New York are the cleanest, most comfortable I've ridden. Excellent wifi, on time. Greyhound isn't that cheap anymore. And rebooking on Greyhound is $20 on top of your original ticket price. Flix takes a small cut of your original fare and credits the balance toward the rebook

The only real disadvantage with Flix, so far, is waiting outside to board. Enjoy Budapest! The people are wonderful, beautiful city.

Thanks, I will. It's a return visit. Was there a couple of years ago and enjoyed it so much, decided to grab a few more days there before heading on to Bratislava and Prague.
