Help with method of travel from CT to UT

Jump to last reply

I've been offered a job in Utah and when I leave is open ended. As soon as I finish getting my affairs in order here in Ct. I'll be able to leave. I'm estimating that will take around 2 weeks to a month from now. The person who is giving me a job is a personal friend who is growing his new business quickly and is going to be hiring a few people in the immediate future. He will be paying my way there but I would like to try to figure out the best combination of cheap/fast.

I looked at Greyhound's site and noticed that if I make advanced purchase of a ticket from here to say, Salt Lake City (not where I'm going, just used as an ex.) for the 10th of June at the earliest, I can get a ticket as low as $128, down from like $210. However, that requires me to buy the ticket for a predetermined date, when I'm not sure exactly when I'll be ready to leave. I would rather the ticket be a bit more flexible if I can finagle that.

Basically, what I'm looking for is advice on how to save him the most money with the most flexible dates and best method of travel for me. Also, are there any sites like Priceline etc. that offer deals on bus/train/whatever the way they do for planes and rental cars?

Any help would be most appreciated.
