A low-cost city-to-city bus service that pulled out of Los Angeles four years ago because of low ridership is rolling back into L.A. in hopes of getting traction in its next outing.
Megabus.com, a subsidiary of Paramus, N.J.-based Coach USA, plans to relaunch its Los Angles hub next month from Union Station, with service to San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Las Vegas. The bus service will also add a second California hub in San Francisco.
The bus line, which offers free onboard wireless Internet, power outlets and bathrooms, now serves 120 cities from eight hubs in North America, mostly on the East Coast, Northeast and several Southern states.
Tickets, which are sold online on www.megabus.com, range from $1 to about $25. The travel time from Los Angeles to San Francisco will be seven hours, 45 minutes. The travel time from Los Angeles to Las Vegas will be five hours, 45 minutes.
