Cons
I never did get the wifi to work, and didn't see the power outlets until the trip back. Apparently nobody else did either, I never saw one being used. The cloth seats are frayed and the buses which were sparkling clean a few years ago could use a refresh.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there WiFi onboard Megabus?

Yes Megabus offers WiFi connection onboard their bus trips. Though most trips with Megabus will have WiFi as advertised, some trips might not come equipped with Wifi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Megabus WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends, you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Are there power outlets on a Megabus bus? Are there USB plugs?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Megabus bus trips. You can generally find one or two plugs per row of seats, so be a good traveler and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power outlet USB converter that typically come with most phones and tablets. Since Megabus might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power outlets. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

Does Megabus offer will call tickets, that you pick up at the station?

No, currently Megabus does not offer will call tickets. You should purchase your tickets online and make sure you have everything you need to board before you arrive at the station or stop.

Do you need an ID to get on a Megabus bus?

No, currently Megabus does not require an ID to board the bus. Of course, it is always a good idea to carry a government-issued ID whenever you hit the road.

Can you use your phone to board Megabus?

Yes, you can use your phone to get onboard Megabus bus. Simply show your confirmation code on your phone to the agent. If you booked on Wanderu, confirmation codes for your upcoming trip are in your My Trips for most carriers.

Are there bathrooms on Megabus buses?

Yes, there are bathrooms on Megabus bus trips. The bathrooms are pretty basic and include a toilet, toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Most bathrooms don’t have running water. As you will be using a bathroom on a moving vehicle, please use caution and hold on to a rail at all times.

Are meals or beverages offered onboard Megabus trips?

Megabus does not offer meals or beverages onboard. We recommend you bring a drink and some snacks for your trip. We also suggest packing a reusable water bottle with you to reduce your impact on the environment. Most carriers, though, do not allow you to bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Does Megabus offer any premium features like extra legroom, movies or TV?

Megabus goes the extra distance to deliver up-class offerings to its customers. Movies are provided during the bus trip to keep you entertained. Don’t forget to bring your favorite pair of headphones, as not all carriers offer headphones on the bus. We recommend in-ear noise cancelling headphones as the best choice for the frequent traveler due to their small size.
