Wanderu.com

Don't knock traveling by bus until you check the price.

» What it does: It's a one-stop-shop website that lets you find and book bus and train tickets for travel in the U.S. and Canada.

» What's hot: Wanderu just added the big granddaddy of bus travel, Greyhound, to its long list of bus and rail partners. Greyhound routes in the Northeast and Canada will be added first. To use the site, plug in your destinations for departure and arrival (see the Wanderu Station Map for locations served), and filter your search results by price, departure or arrival time and duration (an important, often-overlooked factor). You can also fine-tune for other features, such as Wi-Fi and extra legroom, by clicking on "See More Filters" above your search results. I also found the Bus Travel Review section helpful for discovering tips and deals.

» What's not: It's not good for travelers who must plan their trips months in advance. Make sure you search and book your trip within the two-month window. Why? Most bus companies don't release their schedules beyond two months. I also had an easier time finding routes when I knew the name of the bus station rather than just the name of the city.
