Megabus Cuts Cleveland-Columbus Route

Megabus has quietly dropped its Cleveland-Columbus route due to declining ridership.

Also ended was service between Cleveland and Cincinnati. The route had operated twice daily between Cleveland and Atlanta with intermediate stops in Columbus, Cincinnati and points in Kentucky and Tennessee.

MegabusSean Hughes, director of corporate affairs for Megabus North America, told The Plain Dealer that the route was discontinued in early January.

“It wasn’t performing to expectations,” he said. “We had to make a change.”

Hughes said the Cleveland-Columbus leg did well and may be reinstated in the future. “If we choose to expand at some point, that route will be one we’ll look at,” he said.

Greyhound also operates a route linking Cleveland and Columbus.

Megabus has one route left in Cleveland, which runs westbound to Toledo and Chicago, and eastbound to State College, Pennsylvania, and New York City.

In mid-2013, Megabus served 15 cities from Cleveland, including Ann Arbor, Michigan; Pittsburgh; Detroit; and Buffalo, New York.

Megabus is noted for low fares with some as low as $1 one way.
