In the United States, use the Megabus website to book a ticket for travel. Payment needs to be made at the time of booking, as of 2015. In addition to booking tickets, passengers update and make changes to existing reservations online.
First choose the state where the trip begins. The website shows all origin locations for that state, so choose the origin location. Based on the origin location, choose the destination from the list of available destinations. Select the departing and returning dates from the website’s calendar, and enter the number of people traveling.
After clicking Search, all the available departure and arrival times for the dates of departure and return appear. The system shows the address of the departure and arrival stations and cost per ticket each way. The prices vary depending on times selected. The ability to choose a one-way trip exists by selecting the correct box under return trips. Click Add to Basket.
Click on the basket to pay for the trip. The option to reserve a specific seat for a small fee is available on this page. Provide a mobile phone number to receive text alerts about the trip. After accepting the terms and conditions, click on the Pay for Journey button, and enter credit card and personal information.
