ARMY MOVES BY GREYHOUND ... 132 Million Passengers in One Year... the Fighting, Working Manpower of America! It will amaze many to learn that Greyhound and other bus lines now carry more than half of all intercity passengers between cities, towns, military centers, farm and factory areas. Buses do this immensely important job on less than 3 per cent of the motor fuel used by all commercial vehicles! Greyhound, doing the largest single share of this war job, has seen its passengers change, almost overnight, to war plant workers, men and women in uniform, farm help-and all the others whose trips are so necessary to back our fighting men in far lands. To provide extra space on buses for men and women in the service, Greyhound is urging civilians to take only necessary trips S.. to avoid travel on holidays and week ends.., to take less baggage. And be sure to buy more War Savings Bonds and Stamps!
