Cheap Bus Tickets – 3 Easy Steps

1.   Travel at off-peak times

Travel at off peak times to get cheap bus tickets, but what exactly are off-peak times? I congregated Megabus’ one week ticket pricing from Aug 18 2012 Saturday to Aug 24 Friday outbound trip from. Megabus’ ticket prices are usually cheap compared to other companies and the variation in price doesn’t seem to be a lot. Their price schedule is a great example for us to analyze for the best time to book cheap bus tickets.

You will notice many pricing trends here but I will briefly summarize them for you:

  • Don’t travel on Sunday afternoon!

The afternoon before the workday starts is a very popular time for travelers and a bad time for landing a cheap bus ticket. Many people travel short distances over the weekend and go back to the city on Sunday afternoon. If you want to save money, travel a little earlier on Sunday and pick a late morning cheap bus.

  • Morning hour commute tickets always cost more! 

Travel before 10 am and earlier on work days usually yields the most expensive ticket results. Avoid the commuting hype and pick a later ticket. It allows you to bypass the crowd and at the same time offers best bus ticket deals.

  • Travel tides die down during mid-week.

Wednesday and Thursdays are usually the off peak times and I bet that you will get some cheap bus tickets.

2.   Keep an eye on the $1 tickets

Many bus companies offer special tickets whether its Megabus, Boltbus or others. For example, Megabus has special $1 bus tickets. Check out this post to find these $1 Megabus tickets and Megabus promo code. The routes they offer are as follows:

Companies including Megabus offer limited quantities of $1 ticket as well. You can even find cheap bus tickets on the West Coast now in Seattle and Portland through Boltbus deals.

3.   Use an integrated bus search engine to find the cheapest tickets in one place

With a few clicks, people can compare all bus tickets across companies and book the cheapest ticket. Wanderu’s routes and networks are spread out all over the United States and allow people to book tickets for traveling between any two points in the country. Check out Wanderu Bus Travel Review to stay updated on bus deals and destination travel guides.

    David Miller was the best bus driver I have ever met! He was so friendly and helpful, which made my experience awesome! I hope he can train others to be the way he is ;-) Kindness goes forever!

      Hello Celeste,

      Thank you for your message. I’m sorry to hear you haven’t been able to get in touch with 7Bus. Wanderu (our company) is a travel search site that help travelers find bus routes, and at the moment, we currently do not have the route from Melville to NYC directly. I know 7Bus had this, however, since their website has been down for so long and their phone isn’t working either, it is hard to tell if they are still offering service.

      If you have the options to travel to NYC from different areas, we do have some options departing from cities such as Massapequa and Babylon. If you are interested in these tickets, you can book them and look at the schedule here: https://www.wanderu.com/en/depart/New%20York%2C%20NY%2C%20USA/Melville%2C%20NY%2C%20USA/2016-10-06

      Safe travels!

      Patricia,
      There are different companies that could take you from NYC to Charleston, if you are only looking for bus Greyhound offers a 20 hours long trip for $85 a person with the online purchase discount. Amtrak is another option that you might want to consider; it can take you to your destination in 13 hours for $261 dollars per person.
      Check for more information on their website : http://www.amtrak.com/home https://www.greyhound.com/default.aspx

      Hi Gina,

      The cheapest service we could find for you round-trip was around $300 on greyhound, but they do have a couple of options for you trip wise depending on the time of day you want to leave. We also searched Megabus, but unfortunately, they have no services with direct travel from San Antonio to Las Vegas. Here’s the link below in case you want to check it out:

      Hope this helps!
