Busbud not only helps travelers around the world find bus schedules for thousands of routes, but also helps them find resources to better plan their trip with the Explore section available on our 4000+ city and country pages.
Today, we are launching improved Explore city guides, with new categories and more relevant content links than before. This update will help travelers find helpful content faster and make the travel planning process that much simpler! Check out the New York City page for an example.
The content links will feature a variety of sources relevant to the budget traveler, such as Lonely Planet, National Geographic, Rough Guides, Hostelworld and the STA Travel. We do our best to locate the best content from trusted providers, in order to save time for the traveler on-the-go. We will also be adding and curating content links on an ongoing basis to ensure their relevancy.
When we added the Explore section back in December, the section displayed links to great articles from the travel blogger community. These articles, which contain a wealth of city-specific travel tips, helped travelers discover local experiences, attractions and activities on their bus travel itinerary or in their destination city upon arrival. After receiving very positive feedback for the Explore section, we’ve decided to add new content categories and expand the number of content links displayed per category.
Travelers will now be able to find content links for the following additional new categories:
- Online guides
- Tours and activities
- Travel agencies
- Tourism board
- Local transport
So now, if your bus travel brings you to New York, you’ll be able to find a selection of guidebooks for the best travel publishers, research a city’s main neighbourhoods with helpful online guides, find a room in a hostel, book a city tour or learn about local transport options in New York – all in one place! You can also view the city pages for Toronto, Paris, Seville, La Paz, and Istanbul.
