|Take your pick of seats! Lots of space to stretch out.|
On Time Departure / Ample Seats: We left the new Megabus DC stop (at N. Capital St & K St NW) on time for our 11:15 am departure, and we seem to be making good time! Prior to departure, we were greeted by an usher who steered us to the correct bus. Today, this route has very light ridership, so everyone has a whole section to themselves.
WiFi Working Well: I've been working from home the last few months, so I figured I might as well give myself a change of scenery and once again work on the long bus rides. So far the Megabus Wifi service has no issues.
Meet Cristina: My friend Cristina has joined up on this adventure and will be blogging about our travels on a post-trip entry. In the meantime, she's checking our trip progress using her iPhone's GPS. This driver seems to be making good time. I think we may be early!
Exploring on Foot: If it hasn't been made clear in past posts, the point of Megabustrips.com adventures is to explore as much as possible by bus and foot first. In any case, we didn't have a particular plan in mind for this trip, but since it is a day trip, we are probably going to pull off one or two museums, and a late lunch/early dinner. Cristina found some museums she was interested in, and a few were within easy walking distance of the Megabus stop. Unfortunately, the same was not true for her restaurant picks, so I had to improvise using Yelp.com users' suggestions.
Here's are the itinerary options what we came up with:
