Hey guys,

Megabus is now offering service in the US and is currently running a deal exactly like National Express' funfares. These fares are only $1.00 between Midwest cities Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, St. Louis, Milwaulkee, Detroit, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Columbus, and Cincinnati.

Megabus' US site

This should hopefully be helpful to both domestic T-Punks and visitors from overseas looking for a cheap option to travel between some cities without risking the shadyness of Greyhound.

Holy shiznit that's awesome!!!! Maybe we'll have a better way to head up to Wisconsin to visit family aside from the 4 hour OW drive we do way too frequently. Thanks X!

anyone know if megabus has plans to expand to any other areas in the US. particularly the east coast? seems like a cool company, and probably the only way that the US can get something like RyanAir (not that its an airline, but if we can get cheap travel, i'll take it in any form)
