Here’s a contest to get excited about. Megabus.com has partnered with Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), to bring awareness in the month of October. Making travel plans out of the city? Going somewhere special or exciting, for a weekend getaway? Have you heard of Megabus.com? I must say, when the idea came about, it was introduced to me by my dad. My dad is Mobile, Alabama’s biggest fan and advocate for settling down in the city. He has a plethora of knowledge about the city, and is constantly updating people on the growth of the city, the improvements Mobile has made in transportation to and from the city. I will admit, I was impressed to hear and see some of their newest ventures.
In so many words, he said this: Megabus.com provides safe, convenient and affordable daily express bus service between Mobile and Atlanta, Gainesville, Montgomery, New Orleans, Orlando and Tallahassee with free Wi-Fi and power outlets. Additional service to over 100 cities in North American. Purchase tickets and receive more information at www.megabus.com. Straight from the web, but it grabbed my attention.(laughs)
The idea of taking this megabus for a quick trip to the next few cities over, was again pitched to me through a friend who lives Houston. He suggested that we take a trip to New Orleans for the weekend, and take advantage of the inexpensive option that Megabus.com provides. With that, I was online searching.
I can think of so many ways in which this bus can service an individual, as well as groups, such as:
Singles Trip: It’s the easy answer to, how will we all get there and how much money can we save, so that we are able to drink more and drive less?
Couples Trip: Mix it up. Experience something different and live to tell about it. How many times, or when was the last time you committed to a trip out of town, where it did not include making flight arrangements?
Family Trip: Here’s where we explore the possibilities of saving money again. Large families are not always able to organize expensive flights. megabus provides options to take the guess work out of, how will we all get there.
It was a spooky idea at first, having never used any public transportation, city busses, subways, taxi cabs etc., except that one time I made the attempt to do so in New York, where I was left traumatized, after trying to figure out the subway system. However, upon further research and speaking with people who used the service, my mind was at ease.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October, and this is something to get excited about. This month, megabus.com launched a nationwide contest in support of Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) encouraging people to share their story, or the story of a loved one affected by Breast Cancer who deserves a weekend getaway with a megabus of family and friends. For every contest entry during the month of October, megabus.com will donate a dollar to BCRF, up to $10.000.
I was also interested in this partnership between megabus.com and BCRF, because I have family members as well as friends, who are Breast Cancer survivors, who have a story to share. This contest gives them an avenue to share their stories and to inspire others, at the same time
The contest began on October 2, 2017. All entries must be submitted by October 31, 2017 at 11:59 P.M. CT. To participate, entrants must share their story of how they or a loved one has been affected by Breast Cancer, where they would like to go on their trip, and include a photo. Official rules can be found here
One winner will be awarded $5000 for a vacation with round-trip transportation included between any two cities served by megabus for up to 70 of their friends and family. The winner will be chosen and announced via megabus.com social channels on November 15, 2017.
In addition to the contest, a Pink megabus will be traveling throughout the month of October and stopping in various cities including Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., New York, Albany, Boston and Baltimore.
Megabus is the first affordable, express bus service to offer city center-to-center travel for as low as $1 and operates service to/from more than 120 major cities in North America. Since its launch on April 10, 2016, megabus.com has served more than 50 million customers. Megabus.com is a subsidiary of Coach USA, one of the largest transportation companies in North America.
