    Hey guys. Just wondering something. Does Megabus only run single-decker services, or are some double decker?

    I'm considering using them for a trip to London, but I've been shit-scared of double deckers ever since one nearly flipped during a particularly windy day. I can cope for half an hour or so, but four hours would probably result in some unstylish brown scented underwear, a veritable fashion faux pax in swinging London. It's still cheaper than National Express though, and I have an arse of steel that can withstand even the most uncomfortable seats.

    Are there any other things to take into consideration? I'm kind of new to this travelling lark. The only time I've ventured out of my small hometown in the past is into neighbouring towns for the family rag and bone business.

    Got to go now. My father is calling me, the dirty old man. I bet 'e's complaining about something again. At least Hercules (the old cart horse) never bloody moans.

    Most of the megabuses I've been on have been double deckers, in fact I think only a part of one journey was on a single decker. Depends on your area and route but I think the idea is to pack as many people in as is physically possible to make it economical, so double deckers would be used wherever there is enough demand to fill one up.

    That's too easy. :tongue:

    Nah, seriously, it's a bit of a daft question and I'd feel a bit embarrassed asking about it. :)


    Cheers for the responses. I think I'll go by National Express instead :)

    Ok - fair enough.
    Given that i offered - when i ask for you to phone up Lindsay Lohan for me - the answer should be YES.

    Some Megabuses are actually coaches. They start from Victoria coach station and go direct to places but you may need to stop at some layby while the driver takes a whizz behind a bush.

    They defiantely do double deckers up here. They always have a massive picture of a fat rosie cheeked bus driver on the back of them looking like hes away to have a heart attack.
