Has anyone heard of...

Has anyone heard of the Bolt Bus's? I live north of New york city and it's an hour by train or car. I just was told about a line of bus's called the bolt bus and they apparently are INCREDIBLY cheap. They only go to specific areas but I figure I could bike down to Washington DC and bike back They allow bicycles as over sized packages if you pack it up.

The rates are like 16 or so bucks to go down to Washington dc from new york or visa versa which is crazy.

Anyone use this line before?

I use it a lot to go home to Boston from NYC. I've taken it to Philly too, it's good. I haven't brought a bike on board yet, but I'm pretty sure they allow it.
