megabusmegabus US was founded in 2006 under its parent company Coach USA and has evolved swiftly into one of the big players in the bus industry in both North America and Europe. It has been notable ever since for providing cheap bus travel services between cities with incredible prices – whether the two cities are separated by state or country borders. Bus trips to Canada and Mexico frequently start at $1! Unlike other major bus companies, that solely operate bus trips starting at traditional bus stations, megabus has additionally put its innovative idea of serving at curbside bus stops into practice. This way travelers do not have to wait at crowded bus stations bus can board the bus conveniently at comparatively quiet bus stops which are exclusively served by megabus vehicles. In order to create an all-American bus service, megabus has called on its customers to design buses whose appearance is inspired by one of the US states.
megabus operates well-established bus routes in over 34 states, serving ten million passengers per year. Moreover, it is still expanding its network to new locations. At the moment, 115 cities are covered with a total of over 681 bus connections being provided by megabus.

The History of megabus

The History of megabus Back in 2006, the company was founded through Stagecoach’s Coach USA subsidiary with the name megabus, an established brand in the UK. In the beginning, megabus focused on routes in the Midwest, linking Chicago to nearby cities, such as Milwaukee, Cleveland and Ann Arbor. A year later, the company began bus routes in the Southwest, with connections in the Bay area and Los Angeles. However, due to stagnated growth, the company discontinued its LA hub, and re-entered this market in 2012.
After its initial withdrawal from the west coast, megabus turned to the Northeast with routes connecting New York city to major hubs, such as Washington D.C., Boston and Toronto. These routes proved very successful and the company continued to expand to cities, such as Syracuse, Rochester and Hartford. In 2009 and 2010, megabus expanded in Pennsylvania and the Southeast. By 2010, the company shifted its model from spoke-and-hub to point-to-point. In 2012, megabus returned to the West Coast, primarily serving San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento, Reno, Riverside and Los Angeles.

I arrived approximately at 2:46 AM. After waiting for well over an hour at 4:43 AM I’ve been decided to buy an Amtrak train ticket and get a Uber from 42nd St. to Amtrak to catch a 6:02 train. The next day I called in to report and hopefully get a refund. I was basically gaslighted and told that I did not wait for two hours and that I miss my bus and that I was not able to get a refund because no one else complained which was a blatant lie because a woman sat in front of me and literally called and spoke with someone about the same situation and was told the same thing that I was told literally minutes later. That no one called and complained and they would look into it. They said that the bus Arrived at 2:40 something AM and departure at 3:34 AM which was another blatant lie. It’s really scary how far this company will go to lie about a situation and not take responsibility and it’s really sad how they’ve gained a reputation of being unreliable, untruthful, and completely careless when it comes to passengers, especially in cases of extreme weather. I do not recommend this company at all. If they’ll go as far as to lie about this who knows how far they’ll go to lie about something else or cover their ass I don’t trust my information with this company. Over the years they’ve proven themselves to be a very shady company

THE WORST EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD TRAVELLING IN ANY TRANSPORT SYSTEM My partner and I had a bus trip with MEGABUS from New York to Washington D.C. at 8:00 a.m. We arrived 15 minutes earlier and asked if we could use the bus toilets, but the driver said that we couldn’t because of COVID restrictions but that there were restrooms nearby and enough time to go. So I went, and my partner stayed on the bus. When I came back on time at 8:00 am, she was outside arguing with the driver because he said that I was supposedly late and that he wouldn't let us in and he was leaving without us. We asked him to let us in because by that time (after all the argument), it was 8:01 a.m., but he didn’t. At that time, we were tired of the situation, and we ask for our luggage, but again, the driver wasn't letting us take it with us. He said that the luggage was going with him and that we must take the next bus and take them in Washington. We clearly were not going to let that happen because we are not from the US, and we are going back to our country right after going to Washington on April 7th, and our passports were on our luggage, so if we lose them, it would be a huge problem for us. It's been a month since I wrote a complaint to the company and they haven't even answered. DON'T EVER TAKE A BUS WITH THAT COMPANY!
