NYC/Boston/DC, etc Bus Tickets as low as $1.00

This may have been discussed before but there are several bus services to NYC from different New England cities (Boston, DC, Philly, Baltimore, Atlantic City, and others I think?) and if booked far enough in advance, a one way ticket is only $1! A couple of the sites are Megabus.com and boltbus.com, but I think there may be others. I have personally travelled via Megabus and since I did not book my ticket very far in advance (about 3 weeks in advance), my round trip ticket cost $24.50 - but who can complain about that! I think that is the MAX price also. If I had booked before the seats started filling up, it would only have cost me $2.50 round trip! Book FAR in advance to get the $1 deal...2 months or more in advance. Still at $24.50 its worth it considering the price of gas.

Megabus had new buses which were clean, bathroom equiped, had a movie during the trip, luggage storage underneath the bus with no limits, and the others on the bus were not at all 'sketchy' as I was worried they would be. Its operated by Coach. They offer several trips a day, every hour or so.

The buses have become quite popular so I would suggest arriving at the bus stop at least 20 minutes in advance to ensure you have the seat of your choosing. I also think they overbook at least on the trip OUT of NYC, so if you are late and its a busy day, you may have to wait for the next bus (which is likely an hour later). For the price, I think its a great deal even if it is on a bus!

This is pretty amazing!! If you book your ticket at least 3 months in advance, you have a really good chance of only paying $1 per ticket!!!! That's crazy!!

Megabus.com has even added Hartford, CT as another stop. This is totally awesome for us CT residents. Who can beat getting to Boston or NY City for a buck, even $10 or so is a good deal round trip.

They also run out of the midwest ... I know from Minneapolis they go to Chicago and Milwaukee ... and from Chicago you can go to a variety of cities all over Ohio, Memphis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Detroit ... many other places. Quite a deal if you needed to get somewhere cheaply. Though the connections here might be a little too round-about for midwesterners taste - we are pretty used to driving everywhere and parking right in front of where we are going :P
