megabus.com, the UK’s leading budget inter-city coach service, has developed its network of routes once more!
The improved megabus.com timetable now offers express services to Oxford and the south coast.
Megabus continues to provide express links to London, Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff, with twelve coaches a day calling at Sunderland.
Brian Souter, Chief Executive of Stagecoach Group, said: “Our exceptional value fares from just £1* have already been extremely popular in the North East of England.
"With no direct rail services to Oxford and the South Coast, we believe we can create a new market for budget inter-city coach travel. Our routes continue to offer opportunities to catch Megabus to London, Birmingham Airport, Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds too!"
megabus.com is based on the same yield management concept as the budget airlines, with cheaper fares for customers who book early. Seats are booked on a secure e-commerce website at megabus.com. Fares start from just £1, plus a 50p booking fee.
Research shows megabus.com is appealing to a wide customer base, including students, commuters, families and "silver surfers" - over 55s who use the internet. Many passengers have also switched from cars, as well as travelling by bus and coach for the first time.
