Megabus expands service



On Tuesday, Megabus.com, which offers daily, express bus service for as low as $1, announced that it is expanding service to four additional cities. Travelers in the Northeast can now go to Pittsburgh and State College, Penn. Travelers in the Midwest can now go to Des Moines, Iowa and Iowa City, Iowa.

Megabus.com will begin daily service to and from each city on May 4. Passengers can begin booking travel at www.megabus.com for May 4 and beyond.

"Popularity in bus travel continues to rise as travelers search for economical options and quality service," stated Dale Moser, president and COO of megabus.com. "The great travel values offered by megabus.com allow our customers to do more at their final destination; catch a game, visit friends and family or plan weekend getaways."

Megabus.com, a subsidiary of Coach USA, launched in April 2006 and has served more than five million travelers. In addition to low fares, megabus.com offers passengers high value, including double-deck buses, free Wi-Fi, power outlets and easy boarding.

Customers are encouraged to book early to secure fares as low as $1 and will pay competitive fares the closer they book to the day of departure.
