hey, has any of you travelled long distance on megabus in the UK? ITs only 2.50GBP return from NCL-LON inc. And i know I cant expect much the the cost of a cider, but is the comfort reasonable? Only pics of busses (not tht im a bus fan, !) seem to be normal cross city commuters kitted out with high backed seats. Would this be bearable for the 7hrs to London??

I've travelled from Sunderland to London Gatwick on National Express, which took 9 hours. I was travelling alone, and I would never do it again. I would rather spend another £66.50 and fly BA to LGW in comfort.

They have some services around Manchester too, see them on the M6 heading down to london, they look ok, double deck bus/coach things, certainly not tin cans on wheels. Not that different to national express except the price. For £2.50 i think thats fantastic!

lol,. i chickened it out! lol, im going ot Belfast on EZY! its costing me ten times as much as Megabus to london (still, just 25GBP!!) but its 40 mins, safe, clean and comfy. I love easyJet!! lOl, i was needing to go to London for interview for my m-1 training Visa for the USA, but upon booking this interview today, i was told I can use the US Consulate in Belfast, so its a heck of ot easier to jst hop over to NI for a few hours! i must admid the ideda of hours in a glorified commuter bus does not appeal to me!

i would avoid them as the owner is openly homophobic, its a disgusting. I had no idea theyre were stagecoach, and he gets away with it. Another example of britain gone mad, if he said what he said about a particuar racial group, there would be hell on. And dont anyone say 'yah, but a lot of ethnic people travel stagecoach', as us homosexuals accoutn for 10% of the population, and potentially 10% of passengers. Stagecoach were denied a travel officec in my Uni for this reason
