Just had to share this quick update: good news for California backpackers (or anyone who wants to get around California with a cheap bus):
Megabus starts services in California!
they have cheap tickets, comfortable buses and free WiFi in most cases..
The go to cities like LA, Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Jose etc.. unfortunately not yet to San Diego..
Greyhound of course covers most cities in US
Did I mention I went from Atlanta to Orlando with Megabus only for $12? It’s an 8h ride, but if you don’t want to spend the money on the flight – that’s the next best option
