Megabus is an intercity bus service that operates long distance buses and coaches in North America and Europe. Megabus is known for its affordable tickets, with online prices sometimes as low as $1 when booked in advance. Averaging approximately 1,000 bus trips per day and over 13,000 trips per month, Megabus connects 8 cities along 16 routes, making it one of the most significant bus companies today.
Megabus is famous for its $1 tickets; occasionally, there are even free trips. It is true that all Megabus tickets start at $1, but there is a very limited number of these low priced tickets for each trip. Basically it works on a first come, first served basis. The only way to guarantee a $1 fare is to be the first customer to purchase a ticket for your trip. Therefore, you should plan on booking as early as possible.

Megabus luggage policy states that each passenger is allowed one piece of luggage and one carry-on bag. The luggage must weigh less than 50 pounds and must be under 62 inches in dimension when its length, width, and height are added together. The carry-on item must be small enough to fit in either the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you.
Yes, Megabus offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with Megabus will have WiFi as advertised, some buses 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.
Yes, there are power outlets onboard Megabus buses. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller 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 USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.
Since Megabus might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

No, Megabus does not require an ID to board its buses at this time. Of course, it is always a good idea to carry a government-issued ID whenever you hit the road.
Yes, there are bathrooms on Megabus buses. 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.
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. However, note that most buses do not allow you to bring your own alcoholic drinks.
Megabus goes the extra distance to deliver premium features 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 headphones are not always included on the bus. We recommend in-ear noise cancelling headphones due to their small size.
