Megabus Bringing Buses Back to Cali with Hubs in SF and LA
If airfare is out of control this holiday season there’s always an alternative way to get to family and friends, and it doesn’t involve hitchhiking or Craigslist. The cheap bus options are on the move again, and Megabus is getting ready to expand even more.
The busy bus line plans to upgrade its offerings in both California and Nevada, as Megabus is going to setup hubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco. This will open up nonstop options to spots like Oakland, Las Vegas, Riverside, Reno, San Jose, and Sacramento—as well as back and forth between San Francisco and Los Angeles—beginning at just $1 each way. As always, the earlier you book the better when it comes to catching one of the low, low fares, so if you have any plans to travel by bus it’s a good idea to start searching now.
The interstates will be littered with Megabus vehicles beginning December 12 and, to celebrate the big bus news, the first week of operations will feature all $1 tickets. This isn’t the first time that California and Nevada had service like this, as Megabus was here back in 2007 and 2008. However, the double-decker buses—with WiFi and power outlets—are back and here to stay.
With the return of Megabus, we guess there’s no need for that high-speed train after all—ha.
