RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A new bus service is offering fares as low as $1 from Richmond to mid-Atlantic cities.
Megabus.com says it is beginning service next month from Richmond to Washington, Hampton, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Durham and Charlotte, N.C.
The low-cost, express bus service already serves more than 40 cities in North America.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Megabus plans to have three daily departures from Richmond starting on Dec. 15.
Fares start at $1, but prices increase as the travel date gets closer. Megabus says fares also vary by trip and demand for seats.
The company's buses are equipped with free Wi-Fi, power outlets, restrooms and seat belts.
