So they just added a megabus stop to state college,pa. they also have a stop in pittsburgh (where my gf lives). i plan on using megabus this summer if its legit, but this shit definitely seems sketchy. as of now, one ticket is 3 bucks to pittsburgh, and a week later its 10 bucks. this is much much cheaper than the other bus that runs this same route daily at 30 bucks a trip. i found in the T & S the pricing info:
All prices are shown in US$. Megabus.com one-way fares start as low as US$1. Fares will vary by reservation date, day of travel and demand for seats. US$1 fares are limited. Fares are subject to change without notice. A 50¢ fee is charged for all reservations. For changes to existing reservations a US50¢ change fee and a 50¢ new reservation fee will apply. Any change to your reservation may result in a fare increase. Megabus will offer its best prices to those who make reservations early or choose less popular trips. However, all trips will remain competitively priced offering excellent value for your money. Please note that due to the high sales volumes on our website, prices may fluctuate between searches.
A single reservation fee of 50¢ is charged for all megabus reservations. This fee is charged to cover bank and administration charges related to your reservation.
I really don't like that line at all. Has anyone used megabus, and if so what can i expect the price to increase to if i book today at 3 bucks one way and 10 the other? do you think it will end up being cheaper than the 30 dollar trip?
