10,000 Free Tickets from Megabus' Newest Hub in Atlanta

October 25, 2011 at 11:14 AM | by | ()

Big news for travelers in the south! Budget traveler favorite Megabus has just expanded their US route network to include a new hub in Atlanta, Georgia. From the ATL, Megabus will run to 11 cities, of course with all routes and all seats starting from their usual $1 (plus 50 cents reservation fee).

The 11 cities from Atlanta are: Birmingham, AL; Mobile, AL; Montgomery, AL; Charlotte, NC; Chattanooga, TN; Knoxville, TN; Memphis, TN; Nashville, TN; Gainesville, FL; Jacksonville, FL; and Orlando, FL.

That's a lot of Alabama and Florida! With the news comes a giveaway, naturally. Megabus has 10,000 free seats on the new routes, for travel from November 16 to December 16. Enter promo code ATL10K to knock the cheap fares down to FREE.

We're showing our age here, but we remember the days when Chicago was this company's only US hub and any new route announcement was a big deal. Now they're working on this, their seventh hub (hubs: Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C. and Toronto)—and have picked up complimentary on-bus WiFi over the years. Even we—airline geeks and travelers who value our time—have to take the bus sometimes, and of course more expansion means more choice.

I took the Megabus from Cincinnati, OH to Chicago, IL after my best friend totaled my car and I loved it!!! The experience made me regain faith in buses in the US (sorry Greyhound) and I especially loved the price point (would have been better free, however). It was a nice change of pace from always flying or driving places. Very impressed!


Sorry about the car! Yep--I'm a regular from both Chicago & NY hubs and though I often book last minute and miss the $1 seats, I can usually count on $26 or $33 one-way for a 3-5 hour ride.
