City-to-city bus line Megabus.com is re-launching service to California and Nevada by opening hubs at Los Angeles and San Francisco.
California and Nevada residents will be able to travel express to and from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Riverside, Las Vegas, Sparks/Reno, Sacramento and San Jose from $1.
Frequent daily service will begin on December 12 and bookings for the services are now open at www.megabus.com.
Fares start from $1 every day and increase gradually as the traveling date gets closer. Megabus.com encourages customers to book early to secure $1 fares.
“Express bus service from new hubs in San Francisco and Los Angeles is another way Megabus.com keeps Americans connected,” says Mike Alvich, Megabus.com’s vice president of marketing and public relations.
To promote the new service, during the first week of travel (December 12 to December 19, 2012), all tickets will be $1.
