One Dollar Fares On Megabus Available Now — But Hurry
T he new schedule was just released by Megabus in the United States — and fares for as low as one dollar are still available as of “press time” for this article through Tuesday, September 8, 2015; but those fares tend to go fast.
Even if the one dollar fares disappear, there are still low fares available which could be attractive to you if you do not have a problem traveling on a bus to your destination. You can even use it for positioning yourself to an airport where you may have obtained a low airfare.
If you purchase a one dollar return fare — that is, round-trip — it will cost you a minimum of five dollars. The booking fee and the facilities fee each cost $1.50; so at three dollars, the fees cost more than the entire trip. The last time the new schedule was released was back in the middle of November 2014.
My advice is to take an overnight trip — especially if you are able to sleep on the bus. This way, you do not lose time in which you could be doing something else. I had not had luck accessing the Internet via the Wi-Fi which is supposed to be available aboard each bus; but your experience may vary.
