Megabus Rider Posted February 1 Report Share Posted February 1 1 hour ago, ns8401 said: Megabus is trying to be like Wanderu and resell tickets from other carriers. Miller, Southeastern Stages and TNY are and will remain independent companies. It’s not the same as FLIX and Ourbus at all. None of these companies are contractors for Megabus with buses branded that way. They don’t even have a lousy sticker by the door. TNY continues to actively recruit companies to join the Trailways association for example and they have their own ticketing system. So we are entering an era where there are multiple ticket systems being used on the same run depending on where the ticket was bought (Amtrak/Trailways/Megabus/insert independent carrier here). This will allow all of them to partner with other folks and still remain autonomous while preserving interline service once they are severed from Greyhound. Same with Ourbus Contractors. my friend originally wanted to run independent and even had their own ticketing platform with Betterez. My friend realized the cost of marketing and decided to use Ourbus as its ticketing platform. There are some contractors that won't allow Ourbus to put a sticker or wrap on their buses. My friend chose to have both of his buses wrapped by Ourbus to promote the ticketing platform in Canada. At some point the Megabus Contractors will have to at least put a Megabus cardboard on their windshield just like the Ourbus Contractors do. Not every passenger checks their ticket to see 'who' is the contractor that is operating the run they booked. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
