Easy, convenient, relaxing for a reasonable fare. 5 stars Megabus.the starting point is at the Union Station in DC, and stops at Richmond, Hampton and Virginia Beach. Kudos to their drivers... They were cordial and safe drivers.

Union station is more than just a place to catch your Amtrak, it’s a tourist spot, a shopping place and a food court. Along with pretty marble and vaulted ceilings this place is one that you can visit just to say you’ve been here
