The Big Bus
I can't recall ever writing a MountainWings issue about a
commercial service but I just had to.
My brother called me about this service called Megabus.
A student from the church attends college in Charlotte. She
said she rode Megabus home from Charlotte, NC to Atlanta, GA.
The price: $3.00. A roundtrip ticket cost $6.00.
I thought he was joking. How could a bus company make money
charging $3 for a bus ticket? So I went to megabus.com.
I checked how much it would cost me to go from Atlanta, GA to
Orlando, FL. It was either $3 or $1 depending on which day I
traveled. That's a 400+ mile trip for one dollar!
I've heard of great travel deals but this was bordering on
ridiculous. It's probably just an introductory special where
they are essentially giving away bus tickets, but if you are in
some of the southern U.S. states, you need to visit megabus.com
and get on the bus.
By the way, the student also said the Megabus was super nice.
They even have free Wi-Fi on the bus.
Some MountainWings reader wants to visit someone but the price
has prohibited you. Well, wait no more.
This issue won't help you fly over the mountains of life but it
sure will let you ride over them cheaply.
The big bus is waiting...
