Travel Deal of the Century?!

First, let me say I have no commercial connection to anyone or any company. If there is ever an ad on this website, it is put here by WordPress, not by me. That being said, I stumbled across a deal today that I am still finding hard to believe but I thought I would share it. If anyone has anymore info, feel welcome to put it in the comments.

There is a company called Megabus doing business now in the US. Apparently they are only east of the Mississippi River. They advertise reclining seats, bathrooms, and Wi-Fi onboard. Right now they are selling tickets between major hubs for $1 or in some cases $5. Just to check, I booked a seat from Memphis to Atlanta. The estimated travel time was listed as 7 hours 55 minutes. The price was $1.00!

So, I don’t know. Anybody else have any info on this company? I had never heard of it until today. I am hesitant to list a link to their website because of the nature of the non-commercial agreement with wordpress but it is easy enough for anyone to look it up who is interested.

  1. Megabus is awesome. I’ve used them around the northeast, from Boston to New York to Washington DC. The fares are for real, though they are usually only that low if you book fairly far in advance or there is a special deal. They are comfortable, quality buses, nicer than some of the Greyhounds I’ve been on and nicer than the Chinatown buses. One of the ways they keep prices low is not pulling into the big stations, for example Megabus leaves from New York on the street in front of Penn Station not Port Authority.

    • Hi Chaya,
      Thanks for the feedback. My guess is this is a deal that won’t last long but while it does it would sure be a great way to get around in that part of the world.

  2. Wow, that is awesome! I will definitely be checking that out, I want to get back to South Carolina really soon, so this might be a great way to go! Hope you are doing well!!! Love you, bunches and miss you!!!
