Tampa, Florida -- Megabus.com, the popular city-to-city, express bus company with fares from $1, announces expansion within Florida to include services to and from Tampa.
Service begins May 15 and tickets can be purchased at www.megabus.com today.
For as low as $1, plus a reservation fee, Tampa residents will soon be able to travel express to and from Miami and Orlando on six daily arrivals/departures from the Marion Transit Center.
The expansion will make Orlando the 14th megabus.com hub in North America; with the company now serving more than 10 million customers each year in more than 120 cities.
One-way fares always start at $1 on every bus, every day. In celebration of the new service, all tickets purchased on megabus.com between Tampa, Miami and Orlando for the first week of travel (May 15-21) will be $1, plus a reservation fee. On May 22, $1 tickets will continue to be offered daily on every bus, with the price increasing incrementally the closer it gets to the customer's desired departure date.
"We are excited for megabus.com to bring its service to Tampa, giving visitors yet another convenient and affordable way to visit our area," said Santiago Corrada, President & CEO of Visit Tampa Bay. "This expanded service creates great opportunities for tourism to Tampa Bay, and we look forward to welcoming passengers in the near future."
"People who live and work in or near Downtown Tampa will now have an affordable, convenient travel option to and from Orlando and Miami," said Christine Burdick, President of the Tampa Downtown Partnership. "And those who wish to visit Tampa will travel to the multi-modal transportation hub in downtown. From there, they can pick up a HART bus or circulator, or in short order, rent a Coast smart bike to get around downtown. This is yet another amenity that makes Downtown Tampa an exceptional live-work-play experience."
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."
