If you’re planning a trip to Mexico, Greyhound can be one of your transportation options. The bus company has just started providing service to Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey.

It’s a first for Greyhound.  Up until now they contracted with other bus companies in Mexico for the past 50 years.

Passengers have consistently asked when they could ride to Mexico, according to Greyhound President and CEO Dave Leach. So they started the effort three years ago.

They now have a terminal in Nuevo Laredo and a another in Monterrey.

If you judged an invention by early media reviews of its patent, then Zodiac Seats France's "Economy Class Cabin Hexagon" seating pattern is dead on arrival.

Just a few headlines:

"Hey Look the Most Nightmarish Idea for Plane Seating Ever" (Wired)

"'Economy Class Cabin Hexagon' is every flyer's worst nightmare" (Fortune)
