Megabus cancels Knoxville to Memphis service

If you want to get to Memphis from Knoxville, your best bet may be to fly or drive. Megabus, a low cost express bus carrier has eliminated the route from Knoxville to Memphis via Nashville. The bus line appeals to riders because of fares as low as $1, free WI-FI and on-board bathrooms. It is popular among college students, middle aged women and budget travelers.

Megabus stop in Washington, D.C.
The Nashville City Paper reports that Megabus service to Memphis was canceled because of a lack of ridership. As of this writing, Knoxville riders can still travel to :

Atlanta, GA
Buffalo, NY
Chattanooga, TN
Christiansburg, VA
Cincinnatti, Ohio
Columbus, Ohio
New York, NY
Washington, D.C.

Knoxville riders have an alternative. Service is still available to Memphis from the Atlanta hub. Travel will require separate tickets for each leg of the trip and may take a little longer than previously.
