Daily express, city-to-city bus service with free Wi-Fi from $1
All seats for travel during Dec.12-19 to/from newest cities will be $1
Company returns to West Coast based on customer demand

NEW YORK, NY (November 28, 2012) – Megabus.com, the first city-to-city, express bus company with fares from $1, today announced expansion to California and Nevada. California and Nevada residents can now travel express to/from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Calif., Riverside, Calif., Las Vegas, Sparks/Reno, Nev., Sacramento, Calif., and San Jose, Calif. for as low as $1. Frequent daily service will begin Dec. 12, and customers can begin booking travel at www.megabus.com today.
Fares start as low as $1 every day and increase gradually as the traveling date gets closer. Customers are encouraged 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,” said Mike Alvich, megabus.com’s vice president of marketing and public relations. "As California and Nevada residents continue to look for ways to stretch their dollar, megabus.com is committed to safe, affordable travel during this holiday season and beyond.”

To celebrate the new service, during first week of travel Dec. 12-19, all tickets will be $1. Megabus.com always offers fares as low as $1, with many other affordable fares on all of its services.

I searched thru any dates in Dec and it seems like all the routes are $1. Total price is $2.50 RT YMMV.

So did the hotel fall down?

I haven't seen anything like that in China. I spent plenty of time there during the building boom right before the olympics in Beijing. They were adding about a floor a week. Which is the same pace they are building the Freedom Tower at. Which is downright slow when you compare it to the almost 2 floors a week pace they set for the Empire State Building.

You gotta love the ignorance in this thread. Americans are so quick to conveniently ignore their crumbling infrastructure. Upon even hearing about cheap Mattel toys "Made in China," they're quick to make generalizations about construction and engineering in China.

When someone like you who's actually spent time in China and has bothered to read up on the comparisons rebuts these commenters, they're suddenly silent. I wonder why.

Never mind that a visiting Chinese student in Berkeley was quoted by a newspaper as saying that the city was "Beautiful, yet dirty."

The Vietnamese buses charge $45 or so each way so I'm curious how this company charges only $1-3.
One-time thing really. It's probably one of the cheapest way to market their service. Have people like me bragging about the awesome savings we incurred through January rides.

3 hours? I don't think we have implemented that technology in California yet!

Airplanes? Counting the mandatory TSA grope session 3 hours sounds about right.

The reviews don't look so promising. So I'll pass unless there service is better from SF to LA.

Upon further investigation I discovered that if you buy tickets weeks in advance to get them for close to a dollar the sooner you are to the actual date the more expensive it gets. So it seems its not a promotion but how megabus works

When Megabus was running a couple years back, I took it a few times. It never took that long to get there. One time, the driver was super scary and drove 80+ while swerving around to pass slower cars. Our break at Burger King was really short (I was afraid he drove off a few passengers short), and we made it from SJ to LA in less than 4 hours. Hope they hire that guy back:-D.

*edit* Oh yeah, and when I took it, it cost about $30 or so a ride. Very reasonable, but never $1. This deal is sweet.
They had $1 deals back then, too. Of course, it was given to only the first few people who booked for each bus.

I think I paid $18 for one trip, around $26 for another, and around $30 for a few other ones.

All the drivers I met then were super nice.

I've discussed this at length before in other rail threads. People often point out the crashes on Chinese rail. I can counter with all the crashes on Amtrak. Crashes happen.
The point is more how they handled it, not that crashes are inevitable.

Weeks in advance, eh. In that case, I'll hold off on buying the January ticket for another week or two. Not even clear on whether the trip's happening.

Amtrak crashes are like nuclear reactor fallout incidents and shark attacks. They're rare occurrences, not as likely to occur as often as people believe. It's in the few instances they occur the media blows them out of proportion and causes them to become salient in our minds.

You're more likely to die in a car accident. But the average California isn't too chickenshit to get behind the wheel.

If anything, we should be focusing on how to make HSR more efficient. I agree with other posters whatever HSR that gets approved in California won't be nearly as fast and efficient as HSR we see in Japan. But that's an entirely separate issue.
Agreed. Traffic accidents kill more people than any other form of transport. If that amount of people died in rail or air transport those systems would be shutdown in a second. But it's the same in China which doesn't keep people from pointing to a few crashes and deeming the system unfit. Crashes happen. If anything, Germany probably has a less fit rail system than China. It's scandalous over there now.

We are in no position to pretend to be on the high road for "handling things". The whole pretense for the Iraq war is enough proof of that. It's clear that they reason why we went in there is bogus. It's been clear for years. Yet we still haven't stepped up have we? The people responsbile are still talking themselves blue to defend it.
