Train from LA to SF

A friend emailed me to say that he heard on the radio in SF that there is a special deal to travel from LA to SF or vice versa, by train for $1.00. Can you tell me about this ?

I live in Mexico and am here in LA for an operation but will not be doing anything for Christmas and I would like to visit my sister, daughter and friends in thee Bay Area.

The offer is not a train, but a bus. Megabus, a nationwide company, is returning to California, and is offering introductory fares. The first week of the new service is $1, after that, fares are based on a sliding scale, depending on multiple factors.


Alas, the first week of service is in mid-December, especially designed to avoid the major Christmas Travel period, where prices will more than likely be higher.

It is the MegaBus and no $1 fares around Christmas but there is a $3 fare on weekdays:

Departs 7 PM and arrives 2:40 AM - Each Way
