- Columbia, SC and Fayetteville, NC latest cities to take advantage of daily express, city-to-city bus service with free Wi-Fi from $1

NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Megabus.com, the popular city-to-city, express bus company with fares from $1, today announced expansion to Columbia, S.C. and Fayetteville, N.C.; as well as additional services to/from Atlanta, Athens, Ga. and Durham, NC. Service begins February 18 and tickets can be purchased at www.megabus.com  today.

Columbia and Fayetteville residents will soon be able to travel express between the two cities; as well as to and from Atlanta, Athens, G.A. and Durham, N.C. for as low as $1 on three daily arrivals/departures. In each service location, megabus.com provides service out of a local intermodal transportation facility, providing customers with additional convenient, inexpensive local transportation options.

"Megabus.com has rapidly become the travel option of choice for more than 32 million people and we're now excited to bring our unique travel option to residents of South Carolina," said Mike Alvich, VP of Marketing for megabus.com/Coach USA. "As Americans continue to look for ways to stretch their dollar, we look forward to providing safe, convenient and affordable travel to the hundreds of thousands of Columbia and Fayetteville residents while providing Atlanta, Athens and Durham customers with additional service options."

"Being home to America's constitution defenders, we appreciate our freedoms of travel and choice," said John Meroski, President and CEO of the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitor's Bureau. "Megabus.com has fulfilled these rights by giving our residents access to destinations they might not have chosen to drive or have flown to, and opened destinations from which the CVB can attract future visitation."

The launch into South Carolina will mark the 34th U.S. state in which megabus.com operates; plus the District of Columbia and Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.   

"As the official tourism entity for the Columbia region, we're in support of and excited megabus.com will be serving our community and providing new opportunities where visitors can easily access South Carolina's beautiful capital city," Bill Ellen, interim president and CEO of the Midlands Authority for Conventions, Sports & Tourism.

"Customers can travel to these popular destinations in approximately the same amount of time it would take to drive themselves, without the stress of being behind the wheel," added Alvich. "Customers can recline, rest and even sleep, or, if they prefer, keep themselves connected and entertained with free Wi-Fi and power outlets in every seat on our state-of-the-art double-decker buses." 

Customers are encouraged to book early to secure the best rates.

"The $1 fares go quickly, but there are many other great fares available if you book early," said Alvich. "Traveling on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays is another great way customers can secure the best megabus.com fares."
