Megabus

Earlier this week over at Big Soccer a poster brought my attention to Megabus. Apparently, at least for the time being, you can get round trip bus fare from Indy to Chicago, Columbus, or Cincinnatti for $2.50. That's $1.00 each way, and a $.50 reservation fee. Now, I don't know why you'd want to leave our fair city in the coming weeks. But, if you maybe spot a concert, soccer, or some baseball in Chitown, Cinci, or Columbus, and were planning to spend the night, Megabus is practically paying you to go. The company is said to be big in England and their first venture into the US is in the glorious midwest. I don't know how long those rates will last, but it's definitely intriguing.

Holy crap. I may have to check this out on the next trip to Chicago.

With gas prices the way they are, i just can't begin to wrap my head around this. I find myself looking for a show in Chicago to see now. It's almost as if they are paying you to go!

That's a good point. How could you not love that?
