Finally, a competitor for Greyhound. I once rode Greyhound from Michigan to Miami, FL and swore I would never do it again. It cost almost as much to fly, and it took over 10x as long–thirty-six hours if memory serves.
Megabus offers $1.00 fares if you book 45 days in advance. A bus trip from Richmond, Va to Washington, D.C. is only $15! Great idea, gentlemen.
