Megabus changes Washington, DC stop, Knoxville bus service

Megabus changes their Washington, DC stop as of March 1, 2011. It is projected to be a measure that only lasts a few months. Construction at the previous location is causing several companies to have to relocate for at least the time being.

The new Megabus stop in Washington, DC is at  K St. and N. Capitol NW.

Megabus Knoxville, TN Stop
To help passengers, the company is running a free shuttle over to Union Station from the new stop between the hours of 6:45 pm - 11:45 pm. on the 15 minute and 45 minute mark.

The shuttle from Union Station to the new bus stop is at on 1st St NE just south of G St. NE. The Megabus website says that this shuttle will run “on the 0's and 30's” between the hours of 7:00pm to 12:00am.

Knoxville service is also changing.

Two trips to DC from Knoxville will be offered daily. We have no information on whether this is a this temporary or a change to reflect the summer travel season. All we could get out of the company is that they take a “number of factors into consideration” when making changes.

Departure times from Knoxville are now 10:30 am and 10:30 pm.

I haven’t had a chance to get back to DC since the changes. I’ll be able to tell you about the nearby creature comforts as soon as I get the traveling opportunity. In the meantime, if you’ve been there please post a comment below.

Keep checking this blog. We’ll post about Megabus changes on the Washington, DC stop and Knoxville bus service as we find out about them.
