Megabus Riders Stranded At South Station

BOSTON (CBS) – Several Megabus riders had an awful start to the Thanksgiving weekend.

The low cost, daily express bus ride from Boston to New York City was apparently a no-show Wednesday night.

The 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. buses never made it to South Station, leaving many customers with no way out of town.

Some of the 7 p.m. passengers were finally able to get a Megabus at 12:30 a.m. – after a five-and-a-half-hour wait.

Passengers told WBZ-TV no one offered them any explanation for the long delay.

Megabus did not return calls for comment.

    It could be that there was a 6 hour back up on the Mass Pike.

    Maybe so… But I’m thinking a phone call or explanation wouldve been nice! It all boils down to communication in the end

    I agree, there was a major lack of communication on this……….even if there was a traffic issue other bus companies usually have a dispatcher that is able to inform passengers of an issue. DATTCO is the company that manages this line run service for Megabus…they would be the company to speak to about this. They also have several safety issues listed on DOTs website.
