Greyhound has announced it is giving one lucky person and their guest the chance to “Go Greyhound to Gotham City.” The contest is in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ The Dark Knight Rises — the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, hitting theaters July 20th. From today until August 3rd, Dark Knight enthusiasts can enter to win a trip for two to New York and live like Batman’s billionaire alter-ego Bruce Wayne.
“Elevating the typical travel experience is what Greyhound proudly offers every day, so we’re pleased to offer Batman fans a chance to live like a billionaire in partnership with Warner Bros. Studios,” said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “Although there will only be one winner, everyone can travel in style and enjoy great service when they ride our new fleet of buses, which offer express routes between major cities and luxurious amenities — such as Wi-Fi, leather seats and extra legroom — typically found on more expensive travel options.”
The winner and one guest will receive roundtrip airfare for two to New York City, limousine service on a custom Greyhound VIP coach between the airport and hotel, a three-night hotel stay at a four-star or higher hotel, a sunset champagne helicopter tour over Manhattan and dinner at the three Michelin-starred Jean-Georges restaurant.
The grand prize winner will be selected by random drawing and notified by telephone and mail by September 7th.

To promote the sweepstakes, Greyhound is launching a major campaign featuring key art elements from The Dark Knight Rises, using online advertising, a promotional website, in-terminal materials and signage, and social media. Most notably, the company has installed the film’s title treatment on the windows of more than 500 of its new buses across the country, as well as fully wrapped 14 buses that showcase the film’s main characters, Batman and Bane, in a stand-off. The wrapped buses can be seen in some of Greyhound’s biggest markets including New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago and Atlanta.
