Megabus offers fifty-thousand $1 seats
Megabus, the first intercity express bus service offering fares as low as $1, today announced it is offering an additional 50,000 $1 seats for travel Sept. 14 to Nov. 19, 2009. The $1 seats will be available on all Megabus departures (subject to availability) in all 30 cities during the Sept. 14 to Nov. 19 travel period. Travelers will need to use the promo code HOTDEAL when booking for a chance to book the $1 fares.
“The economy still has individuals and families hesitant to spend money, especially on leisure items such as travel,” said Dale Moser, president and COO of Megabus. “Megabus’ low fares make travel very affordable and at $1, there’s no reason to stay home.”
Megabus’s new double-decker coaches include amenities such as free Wi-Fi, on-board restrooms, reclining seats and video entertainment. Half of its fleet currently has power outlets for laptops, and other half will be fitted with them by October 2009.
The company operates in 30 cities in the United States and Canada including New York, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Memphis and Toronto. Unlike many other bus services, all Megabus services are intercity express, so they don’t make numerous time-consuming stops at small towns.
While other modes of transit such as airlines and trains are seeing a decline in business, Megabus has seen its ridership triple to 3 million since its inception in 2006.
