A Bus4You? Absolutely!

Friday August 17th 2012: We are once again enjoying the comfortable seats on oard Bus4You
August 17th 2012, 15:42 PM: We are once again on our way with Bus4You til Göteborg, Sweden. It feels appropriate to remind you all on this excellent way to travel to Sweden's second city.    

We decided to try the new service from Oslo to Göteborg offered by the company Bus4You. They market themselves as a more comfortable way to travel, on buses with fewer and better seats, more leg space, and plugs and free wireless access for you to browse the net on your way. Is this a Bus4You? Enjoy Food & Travel says yes!

The Enjoy Food & Travel team was not alone to have discovered these new buses. Our bus was fully booked when we departed from Oslo March 13th. I had pre booked two seats by the entrance at the middle of the bus. I do not recommend those, as there were less leg space here and no tables to place your computer on.

Bus4You has 3 departures on weekdays and Sundays and two on Saturday from Oslo and Göteborg. I refer to the company website for the time tables.

There are only 39 seats on board, and they have good sized tables, and could be turned into a recliner, offering rest to your legs when lying down. They were very soft and comfortable.

We brought our computers to try the wireless access. After we had plugged in, we found the access to be fast and of high quality. In fact we started on a restaurant review on our way.

This is a non-stop service between Oslo and Göteborg. We arrived in Göteborg after 3 hours and 15 minutes - on schedule, and when we returned we were in fact 25 minutes before schedule, using only 2 hours and 50 minutes.

This is definitely too good to be true! Bus4You is a service for those of you that wants to travel in style and on a low budget. This is certainly not the last time Enjoy Food & Travel use this service!!
