After a pandemic-related hiatus, the Megabus is starting service again in Detroit. The company announced last week that because of a partnership with Miller Transportation, service is now expanded across the Midwest.
Detroit will have direct routes to Ann Arbor, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Albion, Ypsilanti, Jackson, plus a handful of cities in Indiana, including Indianapolis and South Bend. Basically west down 94, then south through Indiana on 31. Unfortunately, at this time there's not a direct route to Chicago like in the past (Although, according to the map, you could go to South Bend and go to Chicago from there).
To get an idea of pricing, going to Indianapolis from Detroit would run about $90, while a trip to Kalamazoo would cost $40.
“The continued expansion of our network to more than fifty cities throughout the central United States is an exciting opportunity for Megabus,” said Colin Emberson, VP Commercial for megabus. “We’re pleased to be able to offer the customers in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Tennessee, and Kentucky additional convenient and safe travel options, with connections to points beyond.”
Trips start this Wednesday, January 25.
