Further French growth for megabus
megabus.com has announced a further expansion of its domestic network in France with the addition of two new routes in the Normandy and Burgundy regions. The Stagecoach owned company will operate a new line between Paris and Dijon and a new route linking Paris, Rouen and Le-Havre, from 3 February 2016. It means it now provides direct links to Paris from over 20 locations across France. A fleet of six coaches will operate the new services and will be based at megabus.com’s base in Lyon. Prior to the liberalisation of the coach market, megabus.com ran only one domestic journey.
megabus.com MD, Edward Hodgson, said, ‘We have had a great response to our good value, high-quality services in France and we’re pleased to be further expanding our network and bringing megabus.com to more new locations. Our aim is to open up new transport options for people who previously may not have been able to afford to make these journeys as well as delivering a boost to tourism and local communities. We look forward to continuing to grow our domestic and international network in the future and welcoming more customers on board.’
