The expectation that one can just get a £1 ticket at any time is obviously somewhat misguided and anyone thinking that needs to join the real world.
During 2005 I made a trip to Derbyshire from Newcastle and by booking ahead obtained a £1 ticket (+ 50p booking fee) that got me as far as Sheffield. The remainder of my trip by tram and local buses cost me much more than my 140 mile £1 trip by megabus and I was therefore quite pleased with the megabus.com offer.

The opportunity nowadays to travel to Paris for £4 on a brand new coach, including the ferry crossing and free on-board wi-fi, would be regarded by many students, retired people and others as an absolute bargain.
Don't knock it Amy, get from behind your desk and try it like a real travel journalist would do and that way you could get some pictures of the brand new Van Hool vehicles. If you do, I promise that we will publish your picture of one of the new coaches on this website!
In the meantime if anyone else can oblige by sending us a picture we would be very grateful, as I think it might be a while before Amy ventures down to Victoria Coach Station.
