Megabus Rolls Out Free Seats Offer

Andrea Sachs

In this economy, every buck counts.

In effort to help travelers save those 100 pennies, MegaBus, the cheap-o bus line that offers fares starting at $1, is giving away 100,000 free seats. The gratis tickets are valid for travel between Jan. 14 and March 18 along its Midwest and Northeast routes -- 29 cities in all, though we are most fond of the Washington to New York City jaunt. The free seats are available on limited times and dates.

Book online and enter promo code greenbus. And if you can't snag a free ticket, just search the couch cushions for spare change.

I just checked this and the outbound trip to NY for 2 tickets is $10 while the return trip is $90. Hardly seems right.

reiflame1: You're complaining about a $25.00 per person price from DC to NYC each way? I wish I could take advantage of that. Unfortunately I don't live in a city served by Megabus. I have to pony up $79.00 round trip on Martz from Wilkes-Barre PA. Although I was told one day turnarounds are going down starting Dec 1, not sure to what. But since I am going to see Tina Turner on the 1st, I'll be taking advantage of that reduced rate!!!!

No, I'm complaining because they advertise super low fares, which is only half true.
