I’m exhausted from my whirlwind weekend and full day of work. I am not saying “I’m too old for this” but I am saying “I need to schedule more recovery time.” So I’m going to be lazy in today’s post.
My Advice for Anyone Riding Megabus
1. Brings socks and a blanket. The buses are heavily air conditioned and according to the drivers they have no control.
2. Bring your own snacks. Yes, the bus stops but the locations weren’t ideal and food options were at minimum. I know snacks take up room in your carry-on but it’s worth it, especially is the trip is a long one.
3. Put down the arm between your seat and your neighbors at the beginning of the trip. That way, the line of personal space is very clear, and you won’t have to be awkward about it four hours in when you’ve taken an elbow in the rib for the fifth time.
3. Have patience – with the internet, with other people, with everything.
4. Remember you get what you pay for and you didn’t have to pay much. The bus is clean (including the bathroom), there’s internet and a power outlet, and the view from the top of the double decker is actually impressive.
Is the Megabus my favorite way to travel? No. But will I travel by Megabus again? Yes.
