With gas prices on the rise and skyrocketing air fares, folks itching to visit Dallas — God knows why, but you people probably have your reasons — might take note of a cheaper mode of transportation. Megabus.com, an express bus service, has added a route from Oklahoma City to Dallas with fares starting at just $1 each way.
The earlier you book your reservation on the brand new 81-seat double-decker coaches, the cheaper the cost. For procrastinators out there, it could cost as much as $20 to $25. Still, that’s cheaper than filling up your own car to head down Interstate 35.
When you take a ride on a Megabus, you ride in style with free Wi-Fi, electrical outlets, reclining chairs, a restroom and air conditioning all included. The only downside, really, is that you wind up in Texas.
OKC passengers can pick up the bus in the parking lot at the northwest corner of N. Hudson Avenue and N.W. Fifth Street. Megabus — that’s just kinda fun to say, isn’t it? — departs Oklahoma City at 8 a.m., 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily.
