NEW YORK -- Megabus.com, a city-to-city, express bus company with fares from $1, have announced expansion to Nevada and California with services to and from Las Vegas.
Las Vegas residents can now travel express to Los Angeles and Riverside, Calif. for as low as $1. Service will begin Dec. 12, and customers can begin booking travel at www.megabus.com
Megabus.com will offer frequent daily service from its Las Vegas arrival/departure location at bay 9 at the RTC South Strip Transfer Terminal near the corner of Sunset and Gilespie St. next to the sports center.
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 between Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Riverside is another way megabus.com keeps Americans connected,” said Mike Alvich, megabus.com’s vice president of marketing and public relations. "As 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 the first week of travel, Dec. 12-19, all tickets will be $1. After Dec. 19, megabus.com will continue to offer fares as low as $1, with many other affordable fares on all of its services.
“Megabus.com, which previously served West Coast residents in 2007-2008, has returned based on customer demand,” said Alvich. “We’ve seen impressive growth throughout North America and are confident that our 21st century double-decker buses with Wi-Fi and power outlets combined with our outstanding prices will be a success among Las Vegas residents.”
The company’s new service will make it possible for more than 111,000 travelers to visit the Las Vegas metro area during the company’s first year of serving the region. Additionally, more than 80 new jobs will be created with megabus.com’s expansion into Nevada and California.
