With gas prices rising, I saw an announcement on travelzoo.com about return bus fares between Montreal and Toronto for $20.00 on Mega Bus (www.megabus.com) . I found this hard to believe since I pay about $140.00 return between Toronto and Sudbury on Greyhound.
The price was accurate and you can even get WIFI and electrical on this bus!
The double decker Mega Bus offers cheap fares for popular routes in Canada, US and the UK. If you are looking to travel from Toronto to a US city, you need to click into the US section on the Mega Bus website.
I discovered that I could get Mega Bus fares from Toronto to NYC for as little as $12.00 one way. Other examples of well priced fares are $1.00 between Boston and NYC, and $5.00 between Toronto and Washington, DC.
Personal experience has shown me that you should book early to get some of the best deals. I found Toronto to Washington return for $24.00, but when I went to book it a week later, the price had gone up. I ended up paying $40.00 return which is still a really good deal. As of today, the price for the same trip has increased to $48.00.
Do you find that it sounds too good to be true? Well, seeing is believing so I’m Washington bound on the Mega Bus this summer. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. In the meantime, please let me know about your experiences on Mega Bus.
If Mega Bus delivers on everything they promise, I think I’ll be bussing it a whole lot more.
