megabus.com

I am embarking on a new method of travel next week - the megabus! I have heard good things about the megabus but I have to say that I am leery. I actually like driving, don't mind that it is 4 hours or more, and enjoy the time to call people and catch up. Also, if megabus is ANYTHING like riding the Greyhound, if will NOT be happy.


Here is the awesome part; my one way ticket was $7.00. Yes! SEVEN DOLLARS! Tolls are more than that.

Anyone ridden the megabus? What was your experience?

Awesome! I've heard so many things about this Megabus lately. I can't wait to hear about your experience.

I would totally do this. $7.00? Get the hell outta here. That's amazing!

Be sure to let us know how it is. Perhaps MD and I will catch a ride with you next time.

I've never used it, but I work with someone who's daughter lives in Chicago and she takes it ALL the time. She hates driving, so that could be why she loves it, but really you (typically) can't beat the cost.

Ok, explain to me. What is the "Megabus" phenomenon?

Please let me know what it is like riding with perfect strangers for 5 hours in something called the megabus. I know whatever your tale, that is an experience that I would only want to live vicariously through others. BTW, I have riden the greyhound once, and I would have to say that riding an actual greyhound would be a preferable means of transportation, regardless of the weather. I also think that an actual greyhound would make less stops between my departure and arrival cities.

I am nervous for you. I hope it works out o.k. Can't wait to hear.

That is what I meant to say, that I was nervous for you. I talked to a friend of mine that took the megabus and he said the key is that right when you get on the bus, beat the shit out of the biggest person there, and no one will mess with you...downside, you have to do that at every stop, it's not like the other people are going to tell the new passengers that you're a badass!
