Looks good but Megabus is unreliable!
My wife and I were left stranded in Edinburgh on 31st December, when our bus failed to show up.
We had paid in advance but this did not help us when left in the city at night, when all other buses and trains had stopped.
With the following day being New Year, with all transport closed, and with all hotels full (Hogmanay celebrations in Edinburgh are massive), we were stuck.
Finally, we were forced to pay double fare for a taxi all the way to Perth.
This cost £90.
We "welcomed in the New Year" in the back of a taxi, and were left broke.
Megabus is run by Stagecoach. I have yet to receive an apology, let alone compensation.
The moral is, like other budget transport - Megabus cannot be relied upon.
