A startup called Wanderu, pronounced “Wander-oo,” is hoping to become the Kayak of motorcoach and train travel, a sector of inter-city transit that does not yet have a leading ticket aggregation site. Wanderu, which accumulated about 20,000 user sign-ups in private beta, is rolling out to the public today.

Wanderu closed a $2.45 million seed round early this month led by Alta Ventures, with participation from Orbitz.com Chairman Jeff Clarke, former Greyhound bus CEO Craig Lentzsch, and Drummond Road Capital Inc, along with a number of angel investors.

I get a virus threat warning on the FW link provided by OP. Here is the direct link to copy and paste:

1)I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials (updated database yesterday) and don't get any virus warning.

2) Mods reviewed the post/link and approved before it appeared in this forum.

3) Hope this new site helps contributors to FW Travel save money.

Looks like 99% of service is in the far east side of the US.

Any example of REALLY cheap fare?

I am not shy to learn: has anyone seen a really cheap fare? We've seen many great offers from each bus co.; is anything spotted thru this engine.

It looks like what Busjunction used to be, plus Amtrak, and minus any of the Chinatown-based lines.
