Speaking of buses, remember when I posted about the double-deck Megabus operating between Boston and New York. And everyone was all like, “yay, when will they come to Providence?” And I was all like, “I wish they’d run to Cape Cod.”
Well, they are coming to Providence to do a New York run (no Cape Cod love for me).
Megabus has the news on their website:
For as low as $1, Providence residents can now travel direct to New York. Megabus.com, the original $1, city-to-city, express bus company will begin daily service to and from Providence on August 25. To celebrate the launch of the Providence to New York route, megabus.com will offer 1,000 FREE seats during the first four weeks of travel. Customers will need to enter the promo code LUVPROV when booking their trip.
The Providence bus stop will be located at the corner of Fountain and Eddy Streets, near the Avis. I wonder why discount carriers like Fung Wah and Megabus don’t operate from Kennedy Plaza where Peter Pan and Greyhound stop. Maybe they have to pay to operate their or something, would certainly be more convenient to have all buses in one place.
