|The Megabus stop in New York City: West 34th Street between 11 ave & 12 ave.|
As a grad student, money is scarce & any kind of travel will need to be bootstrapped. So, I'm travelling by bus (4 hours) & staying at a hostel (in a bunk room).
Rushing from my last class of the day to the bus stop after saying goodbye to my beloved missus, I missed the bus by minutes. I actually watched the bus leave the stop with my friends (who were there much earlier) staring blankly at me behind the large windows as the bus bustled by. I was pissed. I was also wondering... what's next?
I looked online saw that the next bus would leave in 45 minutes. I also saw how much a new ticket would cost & it was much much much more than what I paid for my current ticket many moons ago. In order to figure out what my options were, I tried calling the number on the website. It was a wrong number to another shipping company! After waiting for a Megabus employee for a bit, I walked up to one of them & asked what my options were. Fortunately, the cost of catching the next bus was extremely affordable.
|There's free wifi available on the bus BUT it was so slow that it was frustrating to use.|
|Nonetheless, I'm glad that the have power outlets on the bus to charge my phone/laptop.|
