The catch is that you have to book eary in advance to get the $1 fares. But if you do it will save you alot of money, has anyone here used it yet.

^^No, but I did some research on it back in April when it was first released and I was fascinated by it.

I actually will plan to use this service fairly frequently this summer. I'm gonna catch a couple of baseball games up in Chicago. And I'm going to Cincinnati to visit the Underground Railroad Museum. And I can do it all for a whopping $1.25 per trip! :laugh:

Yeah i plan on using it when i travel back on forth from school (Chicago) to home (Milwaukee) next year. If i can plan when i go back home early enough in advance it should save me $10 a trip. I'll probably use it to visit friends around the midwest too. I wonder what this new competition will mean for greyhound and amtrak, especially on the popular milwaukee-chicago route.

A British friend just told me that London has been doing it for about a decade. Apparently they do very well, but over there at least, the busses are just about unbearable. Our public transportation comfort standards are a bit higher here, so I'd bet that it won't be so bad. Maybe like Greyhound or something.

Hmm.. I just noticed that Indy, Cincinnati and Columbus can travel to each other independently but every other city has to travel to and from Chicago only. I wonder why there aren't any independent Milwaukee to Minneapolis routes, or Cleveland to Detroit routes. Perhaps that'll change.

It doesn't service Kansas City.
That's Because Kansas City SUCKS!

Just Kidding. This service just started a few weeks ago. It's been going for a couple decades serving the UK. It'll expand I'm sure. It's sorely lacking a St. Louis route as well.

Check out the UK routes: www.megabus.com/uk/

edit- Never mind, it covers St. Louis
