Megabus is now big in Texas

TRANSPORT group Stagecoach is expanding its budget coach service, Megabus, in America with a move into Texas.

The announcement came just a fortnight after the Perth-based business agreed a £101 million deal to buy back large parts of the Coach America business it sold almost ten years ago and which is under bankruptcy protection.

The Texas routes – which will run from Dallas, Houston and San Antonio – will initially be operated under contract by Coach America, which also runs a Megabus hub in Atlanta that serves 11 cities.
