Sacramento – San Francisco – Los Angeles – Santa Barbara, Megabus+Flixbus=$10

Flixbus and Megabus are the largest low-cost coachlines in the world. Flixbus is a German brand that offers intercity bus service in Europe and the United States since 2011. Megabus commenced operating in August 2003, initially in the United Kingdom , and later expanding into continental Europe and North America. Megabus sold all operations in the European mainland, as well as those services linking London with Europe, to Flixbus.

Megabus has entered North American market since 2006. Megabus is famous for its double-decker buses and $1 ticket pricing. When Megabus run sales, the ticket prices can go down to $0+booking fee($2.5 in the US/$2 in Canada per payment).

Flixbus entered the US only in 2018. Flixbus is famous for its brand new fleet and free Wi-Fi on board. Flixbus rarely offers $1 or $0 sales but its regular prices are low. FlixBus has established a widely-recognized brand with a strong following across Europe. So many European visitors take FlixBus when they travel in the US.

I bought my the Sacramento – San Francisco ticket for $0 from Megabus. San Francisco – Los Angeles ticket was purchased during the same sale. Unfortunately, I bought the ticket too late and had to pay $4.99 for San Francisco – Los Angeles trip. I was the 10th passenger to bought the ticket on that bus. Los Angeles – Santa Barbara ticket was purchased from Flixbus for 4.5 Euro. If you buy from Flixbus US site, you have to pay $4.99+$2 booking fee for the same ticket. The whole trip from Sacramento to Santa Barbara costed me $4.99+4.5 Euro. Megabus did charge me a $2.5 booking fee. However I purchased 10 tickets in that transaction, so it’s only about $0.25 for each ticket.
