New Buses Draw Thanksgiving Travelers

CHICAGO (AP) -- Millions of Americans are on the move for Thanksgiving, and more of them are discovering that a bus is the cheapest, comfiest and even coolest way to survive the nation's largest annual migration.
   After nearly half a century of decline in the bus industry, a new breed of sleek, Wi-Fi-equipped intercity coach is transforming the image of the bus as the much-ridiculed travel option of last resort.  With free Internet connections, tickets as cheap as $1 and decent legroom, companies such as Megabus.com and BoltBus are luring holiday travelers disenchanted with the hair-pulling rituals of airports and driving.
   Twenty-two-year-old Natalie Sienicki says "it is a nice ride." Her trip from Chicago to Ann Arbor, Mich., on Megabus.com cost $56 roundtrip.
