NEW YORK (May 13, 2009) – Megabus.com, the first intercity, express bus service with fares as low as $1 via the Internet, is bringing Boston its first double-decker buses today.
To accommodate the arrival of the double-deckers, the bus stop location has relocated to the Boston Back Bay Station located at 145 Dartmouth St. All 13 departures and arrivals from New York and Hartford, N.Y., will now take place at this location.
“Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority is pleased to be working closely with megabus.com to meet the intercity travel needs of Bostonians,” said Mark Boyle, assistant general manager for development at MBTA.
“Megabus.com has served more than 400,000 customers to and from Boston since our Northeast launch in May 2008,” said Dale Moser, president and COO of megabus.com. “We’re bringing the future of bus travel to Boston today, being the first company to use double-deckers to carry passengers intercity in the United States.”
The 81-passenger, 13.1 feet high, double-decker buses offer free Wi-Fi, power outlets and DVD video capabilities, as well as a panoramic view, comfortable reclining seats, restroom, safety belts and ADA accessibility.
Megabus.com’s double-decker buses are designed with the latest technology available, and provide significant environmental benefits. Each double-decker bus has the potential to remove 81 automobiles from the highway and is among the most energy and fuel efficient ways to travel.
