It can be tough to justify air travel between relatively close cities when taking a bus has the potential to save so much money, and the Busbud app is just the right resource should frugal travelers opt to take the latter option. The platform is designed specifically for intercity bus travel, offering a simple layout that shows users the cheapest options for buses on any given day.

Busbud is based in Montreal, but the site has garnered worldwide partnerships, and it is available for users in over 100 countries. The platform includes deals from companies like Greyhound, Megabus, Eurolines, ALSA, iDBUS, National Express, and many more. After a successful series B funding round, the company also hopes to expand to Asia, where intercity bus travel is a far more common option that in North America or Europe.
