Megabus discontinues Nashville service to Memphis, Knoxville

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 4:19pm

Low-cost bus operator Megabus has cancelled service between Nashville, Knoxville and Memphis.

Megabus director Bryony Chamberlain said the service was cancelled because of lack of ridership. She said a “handful” of customers were refunded for reservations made in advance.

Nashville service north to Louisville and Indianapolis and south to Chattanooga and Atlanta is still in operation.

Megabus recently relocated to a new drop-off spot in downtown Nashville.

BS. Those busses were full in Nashvegas. Something smelts fishy.

Smelt are fishy. Perhaps they are Italianized?

Yeah. This is interesting. Went by the stop several times when it was at the fairgrounds and there was always a big crowd waiting on the east-west buses.

I had an interest in riding from Knoxville to Nashville. This is a bummer. I thought the buses looked full.

I am really disappointed that the service from Nashville to Memphis has been discontinued being that there are a lot of people now living in Nashville that are from Memphis. I would rather patronize the Megabus for a quick weekend trip home than Greyhound, so I guess this means that I will still be driving. Oh and by the way, I have picked up and dropped off someone in Nashville, so I know that those buses were full because I saw it personally, so yes I agree with the other comments...sounds really fishy. I hope this decision will be reconsidered!
