New York -- Megabus.com -- the city-to-city, express bus company with fares from $1 -- announced Monday added service to/from Tampa with an expansion into Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood.

Service begins Aug. 7 and tickets can be purchased at www.megabus.com starting today.

For as low as $1, plus a reservation fee, Tampa residents will soon be able to travel express to and from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood on the three daily arrivals and departures which also serve Miami and Orlando from the arrival/departure location at the Marion Transit Center, 1211 N. Marion Street.

One-way fares always start at $1, plus a reservation fee, on every bus, every day. Fares increase gradually as the traveling date gets closer. Customers are encouraged to book early to secure $1 fares.

"The $1 fares go quickly, but there are many other great fares available if you book early," said Mike Alvich, VP of Marketing and Public Relations for megabus.com/Coach USA. "Traveling on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays is another great way Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood customers can secure the best megabus.com fares."

Megabus' daily, express service is now available between seven Florida cities (Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, Tallahassee and Tampa) with direct routes to major cities in Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana with connections across the country.
