TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Want to take a trip to Orlando or Miami? You'll soon be able to leave the driving to someone else and save money on gas.

The city-to-city express bus service megabus.com is expanding into Florida and will offer service in Tampa.

Tampa service will include express trips to and from Miami and Orlando.

In celebration of the new service, all tickets purchased on megabus.com between Tampa, Miami and Orlando for the first week of travel (May 15-21) will be $1, plus a reservation fee, according to a news release announcing the new service.

On May 22, $1 tickets will continue to be offered daily on every bus, with the price increasing incrementally the closer it gets to the customer’s desired departure date.

The Tampa megabus.com hub will be located at the Marion Transit Center at 1211 N. Marion St.

“People who live and work in or near Downtown Tampa will now have an affordable, convenient travel option to and from Orlando and Miami,” said Christine Burdick, President of the Tampa Downtown Partnership.

“And those who wish to visit Tampa will travel to the multi-modal transportation hub in downtown. From there, they can pick up a HART bus or circulator, or in short order, rent a Coast smart bike to get around downtown. This is yet another amenity that makes Downtown Tampa an exceptional live-work-play experience.”

Customers are encouraged to book early to secure the best rates.

“The $1 fares go quickly, but there are many other great fares available if you book early,” Alvich, VP of Marketing and Public Relations for megabus.com/Coach USA.

“Traveling on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays is another great way customers can secure the best megabus.com fares.”
