I have done some research on this matter, just in case anyone else is going to EVO 2003 via Greyhound, as I will be for numerous reasons. Anyways, There are 2 stations in which you could go to that are just 4 miles apart in distance from the station to Cal Poly. One is San Bernardino and the other is Anaheim. Anaheim to Cal Poly is 27.32 miles while San Bernardino is 31.41 miles, respectively. Having experienced taking Greyhounds before, I can honestly say it’s not really that bad. I have checked on their website about the ‘friendly’ fares, and some of them are very friendly. ALSO THERE ARE ALOT OF $15 FARES YOU CAN GET IF YOUR STATION IS 300 MILES OR LESS TO ANAHEIM OR SAN BERNARDINO. The only thing that is somewhat annoying is bus lay-overs, but you can also run into that problem with airlines as well. Not nearly as much with airlines, but they do happen at times. Also there is the car accident factor, and blah blah…we all know the stats relationship between car vs. plane accidents. Well, If I have reached a few people about this subject, check out this little chart about the prices…
If you pay AT LEAST 7 days in advance…
and you live 500 miles or less…your price would be $49.00 ONE WAY, ROUND TRIP IS DOUBLE! so $98 round trip.
501-800? $59 or $118
801-1200? $69, $138
1201-1600? $79, $158
1601-2000? $89, $178
2001-2400? $99, $198
2401-2800? $109, $218
>2800 (dunno who this would be) $119, $238
Also, having experience taking taxi’s from both Anaheim and San Bernardino, also including Riverside/Corona…I know what they will charge you. (DEPENDS ON THE DRIVER, but most will buy your sob stories.)
Anaheim to Cal Poly will cost you about $20
San Bernardino to Cal Poly will cost you about $25
Riverside to Cal Poly about $40-50
Corona to Cal Poly about TOO MUCH.
I hop this information helps anyone considering this route of travel.
Thank you for your time in reading this post.
