Megabus rocks

Megabus dropped me off close to New York City's Penn Station

I took Megabus from Boston to New York City last weekend, and it only cost $17! The trip home was just $13! I’m used to taking $100 round-trip bus rides, not $30 round-trip bus rides. I guess if you purchase your Megabus tickets at least a couple of weeks ahead of time you can get an even better deal. A one-way trip may cost as low as $5.

Bolt also offers cheap bus service between Boston and New York. With these great deals, I don’t know how Greyhound stays in business!

  4. […] Last weekend I headed up to New York City for a much-needed day with four of my college roomies. This is becoming an annual tradition, and we’re actually hoping to start doing it twice a year. NYC is a great half-way point: I live in Boston, Karen lives in Philly and Amanda and Lauren live in Maryland. Bus fare is relatively cheap (my round-trip Megabus tickets cost $40; last year I paid just $17). […]
