Megabus to discontinue Springfield service

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 | 11:25 a.m. CDT

SPRINGFIELD — Discount bus company Megabus is discontinuing service to and from Springfield next month.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that Megabus is ending service in the city April 4. Megabus has offered service since October from Springfield to Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, Oklahoma City and Norman, Okla.

Megabus spokesman Mike Alvich says revenue in the Springfield market wasn't enough to support the service. But he says he didn't have figures available on how full the buses departing from Springfield were or how far they fell short of the necessary revenue.
