I loved my experience with Megabus. The driver was attentive and courteous and the bus was awesome. I especially loved that there were outlets on the bus so that devices could be charged. It was also very nice for the driver to take the luggage out for us to grab.
Greyhound could update their buses to include outlets. They could also upgrade their customer service. Greyhound just opens the compartment for the luggage and everyone had to get their own. I literally found my self having to partially crawl inside of the space to grab...More
Take Megabus whenever you can help it.

The space between the seats, a small table in front of each chair and an arm rest on the outside right row. There was one on the left row but not on the right .
