Megabus expands into N.C., S.C.

Posted on February 25, 2014

Megabus.com expanded service to Columbia, S.C. and Fayetteville, N.C. and added services to and from Atlanta; Athens, Ga.; and Durham, N.C.

Columbia and Fayetteville residents will be able to travel express between the two cities, as well as to and from Atlanta; Athens, Ga.; and Durham, N.C., for as low as $1 on three daily arrivals and departures. In each service location, megabus.com provides service out of a local intermodal transportation facility, providing customers with additional transportation options.

"Megabus.com has rapidly become the travel option of choice for more than 32 million people and we're now excited to bring our unique travel option to residents of South Carolina," said Mike Alvich, VP, marketing, for megabus.com/Coach USA.

The launch into South Carolina will mark the 34th U.S. state in which megabus.com operates; plus the District of Columbia and Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec, according to Megabus.com. 
 
"Customers can travel to these popular destinations in approximately the same amount of time it would take to drive themselves, without the stress of being behind the wheel," added Alvich. "Customers can recline, rest and even sleep, or, if they prefer, keep themselves connected and entertained with free Wi-Fi and power outlets in every seat on our state-of-the-art double-decker buses."
