Then there are some startups that are focused on fixing infrastructures struggling to keep up with the changing world. Landlines Founder and chief executive officer David Sunde is working on doing just that. Continue reading to learn how Landline is disrupting the bus travel experience.
At any giving moment, there is a new company raising venture capital. Landline comes out of the Midwest as the operator of a bus network. Even though the company is actually based out of LA, it has completed its initial launch in Minnesota, where there’s greater demand for short-term bus travel. Landline has closed a $3.85 million round led by Los Angeles firm Upfront Ventures, with participation from Mucker Capital and Matchstick Ventures.
Booking Through Landline
The process of booking a ride on Landline is booked through its partner airline Sun Country Airlines. Sun Country travelers pay one fixed price to get them from the bus pick-up point to their final destination. With the goal of helping those who live far distances from airports save money and enjoy the experience of busing.
The perception of bus travel in the U.S. is negative. Many find the experience of bus travel to be uncomfortable and a big part of Landline’s mission is to get people comfortable on buses again as a viable alternative to air travel in certain markets.
What About Competition Like Greyhound?
Many of you might be wondering, isn’t this like Greyhound? According to Landline, they won’t compete with Greyhound because they focus on long-haul trips. However, Landline will specifically focus on connecting those in rural communities to airports, particularly regions where there aren’t already bus routes that conveniently access the airport.
