We decided to take the Megabus instead of drive. Yay me! I get to relax too, in more ways than one. You know all the stresses that go into driving (potential tickets, gas cost, wear & tear on car, accidents,etc etc). And it is much cheaper. Due to Megabus just starting in Cali and a flood of advertising our tickets to La were $96. Still a great deal for 4 people. The return is only $12. So a total of $108 to get 4 people to & from La. I can dig it!
The bus was a perfect hour late. It didn’t bother me much and I actually got to bond with a cool elderly lady. God always works things out. I am sure she could have managed on her own but it was an honor to be able to help her and make sure she a few other seniors were assisted first. She even sat near us on the top level. (It is a double decker bus). She wouldn’t have ventured up there without the help. Downstairs was more crowded so she would have had to share but up there she had two seats to herself.
The wifi wasn’t working but we didn’t have gadgets anyway. We went old school. Books. And card games.
We made decent time. Made one 20 min stop.
Like Faith said, ” mom, the megabus is cool once you get on it.”
They dropped us at Union Station. The portions we saw were beautiful. Hopeful we will get to view it at a decent hour to see it s little better.
