“No bueno ”

Written on: 18/11/2012

After being told to take either megabus or bolt bus from manhattan to Boston, I booked my ticket for megabus and now regret it. the bus was 40 minutes late and the driver was very unprofessional. He was texting and taking phone calls the entire drive, and cursing at the cars around us. He also through his cup on the ground out of frustration I guess because of te traffic. He drove very fast and weaved around other cars, honking his horn atthem to get out of the way. Next time I'll book a flight… Read Full Review

“MEGABUS NIGHTMARE”

Written on: 04/11/2012 by axc07a (1 review written)

The bus has been advertising low prices but my price was not cheap. My pick up was at a random gas station at 1:15 am. I had my two year old son with me and I arrive ten minutes early to make sure I did not miss the bus. They finally decided to show up at 1:50 am. They did not want to let me get on the bus until they found out who was going to be takin over the trip. Fortunately they realized how stupid that was since it was cold and my son was outside with me. We stayed on the bus waiting… Read Full Review

“stay away to not ruin your ”

Written on: 02/11/2012 by Armilla (1 review written)

It is advertized at low cost but you get an unpleasant surprise when you come to buy a ticket. On a long trip passengers who are brave enough to go out and buy a drink at a stop would miss the bus. Guess what, bus drivers do not care less if they are hungry or thirsty. Asking them nicely does not help. Next time it is definitely a train or a car for me. Much better experience… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2012

I took yesterday , Nov 22, 2012 Megabus for the first and last time., form Buffalo, NY to Toronto, ON. I will contact the Head Office. Now I would like to tell everybody in North America, do not touch this company. Driver in Buffalo was rude, arrogant, I am going to accuse him of gender and racial discrimination. Refuses to provide vital information. The bus was late, dirty, smelly and I was sitting on broken seat. He was cursing at other fellow driver, form Coach Canada, parking in bus station

“Next time I'm taking the train...”

Written on: 26/10/2012

I have used megabus many times in the past, and will use them again, for short haul trips of up to 100 miles where the incredibly low cost makes it a no brainer. But recently I was undertaking a return trip from Dundee to Manchester at a bargain rate of £19 all in. The bus down was alright, could have been cleaner and more comfy but at the end of the day it's a public bus! The bus back was completely diabolical! The first problem was that the driver had maxed out his driving hours and… Read Full Review

“Megabus Bristol to London Victoria”

Written on: 25/10/2012 by Beesquirrel (1 review written)

Having read some of the previous reviews I would be inclined to say Megabus is what you expect; cheap travel. If you have the money then buy all means, pay for more comfortable, faster and reliable transport however if you need and subsequently go for cheap travel, then expect to get comparable service for your money. I most frequently use Colston hall Bristol to London Victoria and whilst it has sometimes been late (which would have been the same had I driven as both journey's would be on the… Read Full Review

“Mega Bust Travel ”

Written on: 24/10/2012

Absolutely awful service. Yes, the price was reasonable, but since both times I traveled with them this week they were over 40 minutes late, and not only did the bus driver answer his phone THREE TIMES while driving to have a lovely conversation with some female relative, he decided he would take 5-10 minutes to go on a chocolate dash to a newsagent at the Leeds stop. Oh, it's OK- it's not like some of us had somewhere important to go that evening, you just enjoy adding to your cholesterol… Read Full Review

“Urine for a nasty ride!”

Written on: 24/10/2012

The bus I found was a very good value deal, travelling the length of the country for only 9 pounds. However, the onboard toilet is a joke. On my 7 hour journey I really needed the toilet, and when I tried to go the toilet was blocked, smelly, and did not flush. As I needed a poo I couldn't very well go on a blocked toilet so had to hold it in my colon for the entire journey, and now I am really feeling the effects. As you can imagine, holding in a poo for that long is very uncomfortable and… Read Full Review

“LATE AND DISORGANIZED”

Written on: 18/10/2012

I took the megabus for the first time and was very disappointed. The first bus ride, though it left on time, was a disaster. The bus driver boxed in all the cars that dropped people off so they had to wait for everyone to get on the bus to leave. He then missed his first stop in Detroit, so we drove 40 mins outside of Detroit before all waking up (this was an overnight bus) to him yelling on speakerphone to someone at headquarters, while we were pulled over on the side of the highway, about not… Read Full Review

“A no problem journey”

Written on: 13/10/2012

Went from Birmingham to Manchester and back today. After reading some reviews I was a bit unsure if I made the right choice using Mega bus. But it was great, you get what you pay for. Going to Manchester the coach came 10 minutes early and arrived on time. Coming back to Birmingham the coach came early again and we arrived on time. However there could have been a bit more leg room on the coach. Overall a good experience, next time I'm short on cash I will defiantly use Mega bus… Read Full Review

“DON'T RECCOMENED SUITCASE STOLE”

Written on: 12/10/2012 by Xfernnx (1 review written)

I was on the megabus last night coming home from Glasgow, Scotland. The bus stopped at Perth, and I think this was where my case got took. I didn't want to put my case below as I have fears it going missing and this was the result but a member of staff said I had to and this was the result! I am so angry and frustrated cause I had a lot of goods in there plus my shopping I had bought in Glasgow that day. I don't think this is fair atall, luggage should more secured and not give out to any… Read Full Review

“Cheap for a Reason”

Written on: 26/09/2012

I recently used the Megabus service to travel from Edinburgh to London, and back again. Outgoing: The bus did not turn up, but luckily another service was leaving at the same time. I don't know if this was an earlier service running late, or if there were multiple services. This service was not direct, so they advised people whose final destination was London to disembark in Newcastle, where the original bus would meet them (along with passengers going from Newcastle to London). When we got… Read Full Review

“AVOID!”

Written on: 13/09/2012 by Ascrappy (1 review written)

Avoid at all costs I was going to Lecister from London to a very good friends wedding with my partner however we didn't make it. We got to the bus on time but the wheel on my heavy case broke so I had to drag it along the road my partner ran ahead and informed the driver who turned out to be very rude and aggressive. He shouted at my partner to get off as he had to go, my partner told the driver that I was at the end of the bus and that I was coming the driver told my partner to help me and he… Read Full Review

“Unreliable, Dangerous Driving!!”

Written on: 29/08/2012

I travelled with Megabus Cardiff to London in August 2012. A double decker bus load of passengers were left waiting outside our bus in the pouring rain for over one hour after the departure time. The bus driver only let us on the bus when somebody knocked on the window. I can only imagine what he was doing on the bus for all that time but he was definitely unstable. He delayed us another fifteen minutes because he was unable to shut a door. During the journey he pulled over onto the hard… Read Full Review

“No Problems”

Written on: 19/08/2012

I recently travelled by Megabus to London from Leeds and couldn't find any faults with the service. The driver stopped at Sheffield for 15 minutes and got in to Victoria 15 minutes early. The return journey, the driver stopped for 30 minutes at the services. The bus was full but that wasn't a problem and you get what you pay for and if you dont mind sitting next to a stranger, you cant go wrong… Read Full Review

“You get what you pay for, nothing more, nothing less.”

Written on: 09/08/2012

After reading a few reviews on this and many other sites I always ask myself the same question: Why do people always think megabus are going to be perfect? Sure, the drivers can be a little rude at times. Sure, the buses can be late on arrival/departure but these instances only happen to myself, a constant user of megabus.com to Leeds/Bradford/Newcastle/Birmingham from London, once in every 4/5 return journeys working out to be once in every 8-10 journeys. The first thing people have to… Read Full Review
