Getting 12 people from NYC to Montreal and Back?

Early May revelry-filled weekend excursion from NYC to Montreal for a group of roughly 12 20-somethings. We see time advantages to flying (provided all goes smoothly) but cost disadvantages. We see cost advantages to driving ourselves, but would like to minimize our personal stress and maximize fun. We see personal stress and maximum fun advantages to being driven, but have no experience with long-distance transporation charter and are unclear on whether this would be cheaper than flying. Any suggestions / experiences?

Transport 30 people in Chicago half a mile

I need to transport about 30 people half a mile in downtown Chicago very cheaply. It seems like the cheapest thing to do is just get 10 cabs since it's expensive to hire a bus or party-van-thing for one short trip. I was wondering if anyone had any different suggestions or have tried to orchestrate something similar.

the economics of intercity bus services

Long-distance bus service in many countries is often pretty good, and there are multiple carriers - especially in many low to middle income countries. In the US, there are only two real major players (Greyhound and Peter Pan, which work together), and then a bunch of short haul operators like the many DC-NYC express buses. Does anyone know much regarding the economics of the long-distance bus industry? [more inside]

cheap one-way travel

I am looking for a cheap way to travel from Austin, TX to Huntsville, AL. One-way flights are $200+ on Orbitz. So far Greyhound looks like my best bet at around $60. I guess I'm wondering if anyone can offer any alternatives to these options. Is there any type of legal (or practical) way to hitchhike or maybe a cheaper bus fare? [more inside]
