"Express bus service from new hubs in San Francisco and Los Angeles is another way megabus.com keeps Americans connected," said Mike Alvich, megabus.com's vice president of marketing and public relations. "As California and Nevada residents continue to look for ways to stretch their dollar, megabus.com is committed to safe, affordable travel during this holiday season and beyond."
