People tend to check in during these times:
When leaving out of dc on a Friday afternoon don't expect to get to your destination on time... or even close to time.
Good lord - avoid this crack head parking lot at all costs.
Do not sit by bathroom u will suffer the entire trip
Late buses (particularly the last bus) rarely have outlets and often no wifi. Plan accordingly.
Hungry? Get ice cream or hot dogs from the shady light blue van. Hide yo children!
Go to Chipotle in union station and bring some on the bus. Make everyone jealous. Rule the world.
Love megabus, but the outlets and wifi only work half the time...or less. Bring a book.
If you miss the bus~don't buy a new ticket, just pay $5 extra right at the "stop"...
Sometimes a gate in the fence is open on the east side of the lot by the attendant's hut. Saves walking around if you're headed to Union Station.
Much better than old location. Remember to get in line early. Note: no seats in line for old folks.
The seats on the bottom level right inside the door are often best -- extra legroom, lean back w/o feeling guilty, didn't notice any problems being near the bathroom.
The New Location is definitely Better
Sketchy parking lot. I like @BoltBus stops better at Union Station. Been here 5 minutes and I've been solicited for. 50¢ and some hash. Good thing there are others waiting to get picked up.
If you have a lot of luggage don't rely on the upstanding megabus staff to help you at all.
Re: crackhead parking lot tip, the lot seems okay at 6AM on a Sunday from this white suburbanite's perspective
Great stop. A straight shot from Union Station, lines are well marked, lady attendant is quite friendly!
If at all possible take Bolt Bus... Mega Bus is horrible all the time.
Walk to the corner to grab a cab, but be careful if you're alone bc the area is not safe at off hours
Up stairs is better no one bothers you
If you going to New York remember that your going to probably stop in bmore so if you have a seat to yourself it won't be there for long.
A lot of people complain about MegaBus, but you know what you sign up for when you agree to ride the bus over the train. You get what you pay for on MegaBus: always leaves late, smells, etc. Whatever.
Don't hassle thru Union Station if you getting a ride or taking a cab. Tell them to take you to the Parking Garage entrance on H Street between North Capitol and 3rd NE and then walk right in.
The DC stop is now at Union Station, one level above Amtrak's highest level. Take the escalators up to the bus deck. It's under the parking levels.
New stop @ Union Station not clearly marked after the initial huge sign in lobby. Missed my bus from wandering around lost. Thanks Megabus!
Make sure to get there extra early for holiday travel.
Any bus you get on to NY whether late at night or crack of dawn, be prepared to stand on a long behind line! Smh you WILL be sitting next to someone!
Going north can be delayed, but going south is usually on time, and often early.
Supposedly there is a shuttle to/from Union Station but we didn't see it....
Mega bus is great
My tip Do NOT take Megabus. If you do, read the fine print. They have the right to put you on CoachUSA instead. No WiFi, No Outlets, No large leather seats. Shame, Shame, Shame on you Megabus.
So much hot trade!
Despite being in Union Station, the building is only open to Amtrak riders after 10pm (weekdays). Prepare to be waiting outside if you're on a late night bus!
DOUBLE-DECKER BUSSES FTW.I feel like im driving c:
Unreliable bus, always 20 to 30 minutes late
Don't count on charging your phone or lap top. This is my 4th trip again outlets not working. That means it has been available 1 in 4 trips for me. Nice clean buses though.
Free bus ride! Only 50 cent service fee, so I don't even mind if its late
Somebody just got left....she was begging and pleading, normally im that girl. Do not arrive late!
Definitely sketchy area after 1030 pm
Don't be late, I was once and had to wait an hour for the next bus.
3 out of 5 trips were the worst ever had to convert to BoltBus
This is the new but temporary Megabus stop for all destinations. There is also a free shuttle that connects to Union Station(1st St NE just south of G St. NE). The Shuttle only runs during the eveni
Not as good as Am track but much better thank stank crack head Greyhound.
Megabus to NY delayed by almost an hour, which means we stood in line in the sweltering heat for an hour and 15!
A sign or two with destination and time would be helpful...
Horrible horrible horrible. Was scheduled to leave at 8pm, but delayed due to the DRIVER not being there. Hour and 25 minutes later, we finally have a driver but it'll be another 10 minutes to leave?!
Never had a problem with buses
The wifi never seems to work. My only complaint about the service! Buses are always clean and on time so far!
The pick up area is huge, but every time I've taken a bus through, it is pretty well organized.
Unreliable bus, always 20 to 30 minutes late
Make sure to leave 30-50 min if you are connecting buses.
