Megabus is coming to the South. Routefriend has the coverage.

Megabus is coming to Atlanta

Megabus announced today the launch of a new hub in Atlanta. Their sleek, wifi-equipped buses will serve
Megabus's southern expansion, as seen on Routefriend's Megabus stations map.
You can see all these new locations on Routefriend's Megabus stations map.

There are a ton of Megabus' famous $1 fares available, as well as 10,000 free seats with promo code "ATL10K".

The new service begins November 16.

Introducing Routefriend.com/stations

Find the station locations for all of the providers in the Routefriend system: Amtrak, Greyhound, Megabus, Boltbus and more, with Routefriend's new station maps. The feature is called Routefriend.com/stations.

Here's how it works. First, select your favorite provider from the list at http://routefriend.com/stations.

You'll see a map of all the stations for that provider.

To find a particular station, you can either zoom in on it from the map or select it from the list of stations on the right. For a big provider like Amtrak with lots of stations, it may help to filter by some text. There is a textbox on the upper-right side of the screen. As you type, the stations list will show matching stations.

Click on a station and you'll see what we know about it...its location and its website. You can plan trips to and from the station using Routefriend.com/search, our bus and train trip planner. You can also zoom in to find out exactly how to get to that station. For a lot of providers, this means no more deciphering confusing directions on their websites. (We're looking at you, Greyhound.)

Our only disclaimer is, while we've done our best to have an accurate and up-to-date resource, we're not perfect. This site is intended to be a resource, not a definitive guide, and you should always double-check things before traveling.

That said, we've found this information to be really handy. There's no resource quite like it online. We hope you like it too.
