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.

Can't wait!!! Love to go up north to watch my Giants play! I'd pay less than airfare of course, $75 roundtrip sounds good and I don't have to be up in the air!!! When is this high speed train happening!!!!! bounce
Initial construction is just taking place now for a nearly 1,000-mile train track. This is going to take a long time. Trust that if I tell you the year, you'll be severely disappointed.

In 2008, California voters approved of Proposition 1A, and this pass summer, Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill to start the initial construction. Once completed, a high-speed train will be able to bring passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 2 hours and 40 minutes.

It won't be $1 each way like this deal though!

And the scheduled completion date is now in the year 2030...that is of course not considering any more construction delays or legal challenges, which it will most certainly will.

Again? Remember when they did this like 10 years ago. It only lasted a couple of months before they retreated from California. I guess they have to match Greyhound who has been running $1 specials.

That's what baffles me about the US now. The metro "subway" line in SF will take about 20 years to build as well. China built like 5 new subway lines in Shanghai in 2 years. They will build another 11 in the next 7-8 years. If China was to build the rail system for us, it would take 1-2 years and be under budget and on time. They offered to. Our pride got in the way and we declined. So instead of having a highspeed train in a couple of years, we'll have to wait 20 years if not much much more.

There was a time we were a "can do" country. We used to finish skyscrapers in a year back in the day. I remember those times. Now it takes us 10 years just to break ground.

I think a big part of it is political matters, and another part is safety.

When I visited Asia, someone I knew in the southeast said they completed a 38-story hotel within two months - from a hole in the ground. How safe is it? Not very. Fortunately for the builders and the hotel, even when parts of the hotel broke and hurt people, they couldn't be sued due to no such legal system.

I heard theres talks of an express train that goes from SF to LA to SD to VEGAS. Just engineering lingo...heard it from my boss. Big Grin
This has been going on since the 70s in CA. I'm still doubtful it will be implemented even after all these bond measures have passed.

It has nothing to do with can do attitude and more to do with regulations, landowners rights, and legal challenges. China is basically what the US was back in the 1800's and the industrial revolution, you want to build it, everybody whose in the way of a development must move. Forget about the environment, forget about building the most safest structure, we need to build it ASAP even if safety is ignored. If there was a Chinese company that tried to build it they would face the same type of regulations here in the US. Not to mention a huge part of the delays is also in implementing the latest seismic safety standards so that the thing won't just fall apart in the event of an earthquake. I would hate to be in one of those Chinese buildings in China when the big one happens.
