Planning a cross country trip? Need to get from college to home? Hoping to spend a day gambling or sightseeing? As the economy struggles, people still want to travel but are looking for cost effective ways to get where they're going. Some have found their way past the "Loser Cruisers" and "Smelly Bus."

Wednesday morning at 9 on 90.3.
