Entrepreneur plans for Brooklyn-direct bus service to nearby destinations
Buckle up, Brooklyn. A brand new bus line, heading direct to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut or Washington D.C., might be rolling through a stop near you in the near future.
Director of Tech Operations at SFX Entertainment and a “serial entrepreneur,” Bobby Ziade got the idea for a bus line that makes trips directly from Brooklyn to popular nearby destinations after realizing that there had to be a more effective way to get to his girlfriend in Allentown, Pennsylvania from Bay Ridge.
“As a New Yorker, I’m not really used to driving a lot,” said Ziade. “I said to myself, well, I live in Bay Ridge; when I go to my girlfriend’s house, which is in Allentown, wouldn’t it be great to not have to drive every time I wanted to come.”
The company, still in its early stages, has started a Facebook page to try to figure out the demand for routes that head non-stop there and back to the above-mentioned areas.
