    anyone use the Megabus service?

    I have booked a seat on the megabus from Preston to London, has anyone used the service, and if so how would you rate it. I have to get a flight from Heathrow, no seats on flights Manchester to Heathrow left and the train is a mad price but have read reviews and they all seem fairly poor so thinking maybe I should book the train now.

    We used to use the Megabus when it first came about, used to just be an old double decker bus, but as far as I'm aware now it's proper coaches, not had any experience with the English ones but if there anything like the Scottish one's then there no too bad.

    I did the same trip as you lol and it was so painful... (I was on my own) so had to sit there with ipod for ages and it was packed... Pretty uncomfortable too

    Yes ive used 1 from victoria station to manchester after i missed my train back from wembley after we won the fa cup......basically its a double decker coach with a toilet.

    BTW mine was a double decker.. and I know that sounded like I absolutely hated it.. considering it was £2.50 return I'd do it again, as long as I wasn't on my own lol.

    used it before leeds - london....decent enough if you havnt booked in advance on the train for cheap!

    just had to do 12 hour bus journey from melbourne to sydney coz flights cancelled .....bloody ash cloud.

    cost twice as much to get the coach as it was to fly 1hr 20 v 12 hours!

    Yeah that shouldn't be too bad.. I had to go in the daytime cause I live in Blackpool and if I was going to pay for a taxi to Preston I may aswell have got a train lol xD And it was a double decker the one I was on and I read above that they rarely use them now.
