New Discount Bus Service to New York City With WiFi

November 4, 2007 at 1:31 pm

Now there’s an alternative to the Greyhound and Fung Wah bus service between Boston and New York City. Vamoose offers free complimentary WiFi service on the bus!  Limoliner also has WiFi access, but Vamoose is cheaper at $22 one way. They also have guaranteed seating when you call in advance. found via Boston Knows

Since the iPhone still doesn’t let you share it’s EDGE connection with a laptop computer, having WiFi on the bus would be very handy. And even if I were to hack my iPhone share its EDGE connection to get Internet on my Macbook, it would still be much slower than WiFi.

I’ve been meaning to get down to NYC to visit friends, and now I have one more reason to make the trip. I can be connected during the 8-9 hrs spent on the bus!

Bicycle taxis come to New York City

June 11, 2006 at 12:00 pm

200606111234New York City is finally getting bicycle rickshaws as an alternative to traditional motorized taxis. Copenhagen has had these for years (Cykel Taxi, Copenhagen Rickshaw) and they’re a great way to see the city.

It would be interesting to see if the wildly successful free city bikes program which was started 11 years ago in Copenhagen, would work in NYC.

“Taking the bikes beyond central city limits releases a hefty fine, but some of the bikes have reportedly been seen as far away as New York City and the French Riviera. One bike even made it on board Air Force One – a special gift from the city to President Clinton when he visited in 1997.” (Source: The Copenhagen Post 4/28/06)
