A couple of months ago I travel to London via the Megabus to go and get my Nigerian passport. And its was cheap as peanuts I thought I would do a quick review of Megabus for the people who hope to use this bus company.In total it cost me £7.00 to travel to London on a return ticket .I got brought this coach ticket as I couldn’t afford the train fare .It’s double in the last year to go London by train,so Megabus seem like a great option.For people on a teeny weeny budget like me.
I can say it was an alright ride the bus, the seats we comfortable but not enough legroom if your tall like me ( 174cm) .The toilet was teeny weeny too. You cant afford to be fat on Megabus as you will get stuck on the toilet. As the cubicle is so small and its a very tight squeeze .The Wifi wasn’t get but it did the job.
The bus arrive on time at 3.15 am but the only problem was the bus arrived London 1.30 hours late .Due to the another bus driver arriving late in Milton Keynes,which is where the bus drivers change over. And another Megabus just outside London , had a fire and break down. And our driver had to take hes passenger on to our bus. Which made us even later.I realise now after all that, why the Megabus is so cheap. There’s a 50 percent chance it wont arrive on time. But really what could I have done as its was only £7.00 on a return ticket to London from Manchester.
Some of the passengers got upset with the driver for being late arrive to London and they we told they would be kicked off the bus for complaining too much. There were two Nigerians complaining there were quite aggressive.Its the Nigerian way to be very expressive when you speak.I just laugh as you should know better at this price then expect the coach to be on time .Its not Ryanair who are great at being on time.I was just happy are coach didn’t catch fire like the other coach.
This Megabus coach its really for the budget traveler who has a lot of time too kill.I would not recommend it if you need to get there on time.Try National Express for that.
One last thing, there was a screaming baby on the way back that nearly gave me a headache,l think the baby was in pain .Every time I tried to sleep the baby kept crying and let us now, that if he couldn’t sleep no one was going too sleep lol. But apart from that it was a nice trip. Would I use there service again .Yeah sure but only because l am on a small budget and cant afford the train.
