Rally Your School for Break Trips!

Once you book, Rally will keep you informed about your trip status. You only pay when your bus has enough riders signed up.

buspool intro

511NY Rideshare partners with Rally to offer rides home, and back to campus, for university students. Buspooling is rideshare on modern, charter-style buses, with amenities like free wifi, power outlets and an on-board restroom. All trips have enhanced cleaning procedures and air filtration systems at or above CDC guidelines, and additional safety practices, such as touchless boarding and limited capacity for social distancing.

Ready to Rally? Book a seat from your school, add your hometown on the route, or create an entirely new trip. Share with friends to get your trip confirmed. As soon as enough riders book, you’ll be notified that your trip is on. You only pay for a trip that is confirmed, and free cancellations are honored (up to 1 week prior).

For your next break trip, enjoy the convenience, affordability, safety and environmental sustainability of buses, while supporting local businesses. Contact Rally with questions: buspool@rally.co

What People Are Saying About Buspooling

" I rode with Rally a total of 4 times for Thanksgiving break and for Winter break, and I had no bad experiences. My family is willing to pay the extra money for Rally rather than paying for a cheaper Greyhound ticket because the pick-up/drop off stop is so close to my house, the bus is filled with other students, and the bus is high quality. Overall I had an excellent experience and I will definitely ride with Rally in the future. "

- Regina T.

" Every trip has been awesome. The communication is great. The check in is so easy and the bus drivers have been very kind, friendly and helpful. The buses are always on time and very clean. Another awesome thing is the online bus tracker. It's the best way to get your kids home and back to school. I highly recommend it. "
