Megabus expands into Calif., Nev.

Posted on November 29, 2012

California and Nevada residents can now travel express to/from Los Angeles; San Francisco; Oakland, Calif.; Riverside, Calif.; Las Vegas; Sparks/Reno, Nev.; Sacramento, Calif.; and San Jose, Calif. for as low as $1 on megabus.com, with frequent daily service beginning December 12.

“Express bus service from new hubs in San Francisco and Los Angeles is another way megabus.com keeps Americans connected,” said Mike Alvich, megabus.com’s VP, marketing and public relations. "As California and Nevada residents continue to look for ways to stretch their dollar, megabus.com is committed to safe, affordable travel during this holiday season and beyond.”

To celebrate the new service, during first week of travel December 12 to 19, all tickets will be $1. Megabus.com always offers fares as low as $1, with many other affordable fares on all of its services.

“Megabus.com, which previously served West Coast residents in 2007-2008, has returned based on customer demand,” said Alvich.

More than 80 new jobs will be created with megabus.com’s expansion into Nevada and California.
