Lubbock Chamber exploring possibility to bring Megabus to the Hub City

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Chamber of Commerce is courting a new travel option fore getting into the metroplex. 

Megabus is a city-to-city bus system that serves areas across the country. Representatives from the company met with the Chamber's transportation committee about possibly bringing the service to Lubbock.

"Adding that, especially for Texas Tech students, is a cheaper way, potentially, for them to travel, and those of us who are obviously used to traveling no matter how, any way that we can do that cheaper -- as well as greener -- I think that's a good option for us to consider," Eddie McBride, with the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, said. 

Mcbride said Megabus is still in the early planning stages and has a lot of research to do before making its decision.
