Beyond Your Wildest Dreams ... Or Bloomington-Normal

By Alicia Dorr in Miscellaneous on Oct 3, 2007 6:47PM

After that hilarious "oops, we ran out of gas" bit, Megabus is offering something even more spectacular for customers and onlookers — daily service from Chicago to Bloomington-Normal!

2007_10_03.megabus.jpgMegabus already offers quick, cheap service (like your mom) between 13 cities in the Midwest, and between some in the Southwest. The company makes good on its $1 promise if you book way ahead of time — Thanksgiving is right around the corner! — but fares closer to departure still don't climb too high. Now all you have left to do is to decide if the amazingly cheap fare is worth taking the chance of sitting somewhere on a highway outside of Bloomington-Normal waiting for gas. Or, you know, going to Bloomington-Normal.
