Mega Questions

Dear Friends,

I am faced with a tough decision in the coming days. In mid-July I’ll need to drive a U-Haul from Cincinnati to Chicago stuffed with furniture. This situation of course means I cannot drive the brave little Beetle to Cincinnati and leaves me all sorts of planes, trains and automobuses to consider taking there. I’ve most recently seriously considered taking the notorious Megabus.

So, my question is this: Do I take a Megabus from Chicago to Cincinnati? I’ve heard mixed things—that the buses arrive heinously late, that it’s efficient, that it’s better to spend the money getting there some other way, and that it’s a great deal. Can anyone offer me advice?

I am,

Gratefully yours J

Everyone I know who's done the Megabus from Cinci-Chicago has said it's clean, quick, and safe as well as a great deal.

Thanks, Julie! That's reassuring. I've heard about this new double-decker thing they have going on too... I may have to check that out if I can.

I've only done it from Milwaukee but it's never let me down. And if you book soon it's a great deal. But choose your seat carefully, as I always seem to end up with loquacious characters in the row behind me.
