Megabus announces D.C. as its newest hub!

Express intercity carrier Megabus has long offered service to and from Washington, D.C. from its base location at 10th and H St. NW.  Now, it's expanding that service.

Beginning on December 15, 2010, Megabus will offer travel from the nation's capital to these destinations:
  • Boston, MA
  • Buffalo, NY
  • Charlotte, NC
  • Hampton, VA
  • Harrisburg, PA
  • Knoxville, TN
  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Raleigh/Durham, NC
  • Richmond, CA
  • Toronto, Canada

Megabus is a subsidiary of Coach USA and competes with both BoltBus and next-generation Greyhound service.  Each of these services offers more legroom and lower fares than traditional bus service as well as free onboard Internet access via wi-fi. 

However, the addition of new Megabus routes originating from D.C. puts Megabus far ahead of its competitors: from Washington, BoltBus offers direct service only to New York, and while Greyhound goes everywhere, it has next-gen buses only for routes to Boston, New York, and Montreal.

That means that if you're looking to go anywhere outside of the Northeast Corridor, Megabus offers you the best value for the price -- with fares starting as low as $1.
