As gas prices continue to climb, many families have been forced to put annual vacations on hold. Road trips to Florida, the Grand Canyon, Lake Michigan, and other favorite destinations have been replaced by “staycations” or trips a little closer to home. Fortunately, thanks to Megabus, those on a tight budget can still afford to get away.
More Bang for a Buck
Launched in 2006, Megabus is the first low-cost express bus service to offer city-to-city travel for as little as $1 via the internet. The company has served over 22 million customers in more than 120 cities across North America including Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Philadelphia, New York, and Toronto. At the end of 2012, the company announced expanded express service to and from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and six other cities in California and Nevada.
Relax and Enjoy the Ride
Its fleet features luxury single and double deck buses offering free wi-fi, at-seat plug-ins, panoramic windows, restrooms, and a green alternative to travel. Megabus promises its buses are “meticulously maintained” and handled by “professional drivers” to ensure its customers enjoy a convenient, comfortable, and, most importantly, safe ride.
That’s the Ticket
Always looking to give back to their customers, the company offered 200,000 free seats for travel at the beginning of 2013. “A free ticket means there’s no reason to stay home, said Mike Alvich, Megabus.com’s vice president of marketing and public relations. “Megabus.com offers service to more than 120 cities in North America. That means there are millions of potential travelers that can use the free tickets to experience (our) service for the first time.”
This summer, skip the “staycation” and hit the open road with Megabus. You can leave your worries (and your car) behind.
