For Dallas-area residents taking Megabus, there'll be no more suckering friends to brave DFW traffic for a ride to the Grand Prairie Megabus stop in the suburbs: Dallas proper will have its own location at the East Transfer Center beginning November 19. 

This addition makes travel around the Lone Star State even easier. The downtown stop is just a couple of blocks from two DART rail stops, the Pearl/Arts District Station and the Deep Ellum Station.

 Dallas travelers can book trips online to 21 cities across the country, including Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville, New York City and Washington, D.C.

It's also more affordable (Megabus fares start as low as $1), especially considering the recent acquisition of Kerrville Bus Company by Coach USA, Megabus' parent company.

Megabus has also re-launched Houston to Austin service, with stops along the way in Brenham, Giddings, Katy, La Grange and Prairie View. Customers can purchase tickets online or snag non-discounted "walkup" tickets from ticket agents at all stops except Houston. 

Dallas travelers can book trips online to 21 cities across the country, including Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville, New York City and Washington, D.C. Routes also cover seven Texas locations from El Paso to Abilene. All tickets are for a comfortable ride upon a double-decker, Wi-Fi- and restroom-equipped bus.
