NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Greyhound has increased nonstop trips between Baton Rouge and New Orleans and has added a new route between the cities, with stops in Gonzales, Houma and LaPlace.

Greyhound Lines Inc. president and CEO Dave Leach says it’s the first time in 10 years that rural communities have been added to Greyhound’s network. He says they were added in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.

New Orleans CityBusiness reports (https://bit.ly/1KKN9K4 ) that the additions announced Thursday respond to demand for service in smaller markets.

Greyhound says the QuickLink commuter service has been boosted to 25 schedules a day - some nonstop, some including stops in Gonzales and LaPlace.

QuickLink fares start at $11 from Baton Rouge to New Orleans.

The announcement does not say what DOTD is contributing.
