megabus Announce UK to Italy Service

Further to recent postings here about the launch of new services within Italy, has now announced a new international route linking the UK with Italy for the first time.

The company is now operating two services a day in each direction between London, Lille, Paris, Lyon, Turin and Milan.
The new route – which is only direct coach link between London and Milan - is the first connection between the UK and Italy and for the first time also provides a direct link between London and Lyon.

The route connects Britain with the new domestic network in Italy which covers 13 cities including Rome, Milan, Naples, Venice and Florence.
Fares on every journey start from just £1 and all services will operate using state-of-the-art vehicles with free Wifi, power sockets, air conditioning and a toilet. Managing Director Edward Hodgson said: “This new route is great news for our customers in the UK who now have access to even more great value coach links across Europe as well as linking into our new low-fares domestic network in Italy for the first time.
“These new services will also deliver a further boost for tourism by making it even easier to access affordable travel to and from Britain for people who may previously have been prohibited by the cost of travel. We are the only coach operator in Europe to offer €1 fares on all services across all routes.”
