You’ve waited a long time for this first peacetime summer—now there’s every
reason you can have that perfect vacation you’ve dreamed about. Playspots, sum*
mer resorts and hotels will be at their best, and Greyhound has increased its service
to an all-time peak—with special Express buses, more frequent schedules, other
improvements. But millions of others have been waiting
and dreaming too—so plan ahead.

Check with the Greyhound agent on the best time to
go—he may recommend a certain time of day... or a mid
week departure. Perhaps you’ll find it best to arrange
your trip after the summer rush—when Autumn high
ways are at their colorful best. Certainly you’ll want con
firmed reservations where you’re stopping overnight.
Wherever you go—go Greyhound, for convenience,
for comfort, for dollar-saving economy. Whatever you
do—plan ahead.
