Megabus.com is a new low-cost bus service, very much like those no-frills air carriers.
Megabus offers discount seats, starting at $1.00, on a first come, first serve basis. All reservations are made online. Megabus uses public pick-up and drop-off sites to avoid the expense of a conventional station. Routes are non-stop saving on travel time.
If you think seating might be optional, you would be surprised to learn that not only do you get a nice seat but the buses are equipped with WiFi and electrical outlets. No driving hassles and you can bring along the old laptop and made your trip productive as well. Onboard restrooms are included and most buses have seatbelts. You may also use your child safety seat for children under the age of 7.
Now you are probably thinking, yes but how many of those $1.00 seats are there are how high do the prices go! I think you will be pleasantly surprised to learn that the maximum ticket price between Harrisburg and Philadelphia is only $10.00! It only costs $1.00 to change your reservation.
Currently, Megabus services Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg and State College in Pennsylvania. If you are looking for a reasonable alternative from driving this could be for you.
