Megabus is a a subsidiary of Coach USA. It was launched in April 2006 and is one of the largest intercity express bus service providers in North America, transporting more than 22 million travelers. In addition to affordable fares on modern, environmentally-friendly buses, there’s free Wi-Fi, power outlets and restrooms.
Fair warning — my own experience on Megabus between NYC and Pittsburgh recently was frustrating because the free Wi-Fi wasn’t powerful enough to serve everybody on board who wanted to use it, and the temperature controls ranged from super-cold to super-hot with nothing in between.
