Megabus.com, a low-cost bus carrier that began offering express service connecting Sacramento, San Francisco and Sparks, Nev., in December, has launched new service to and from the Silver Legacy Resort Casino in downtown Reno.
The service point on West 5th St. - between North Sierra and North Virginia streets - in Reno will host two daily arrivals and departures to Sacramento and San Francisco.
Customers can book tickets at www.megabus.com, with some tickets available for a promotional fare of only $1.
"Our customers reached out and asked if a stop could be made directly in Reno, and we were pleased we were able to make that happen," said Megabus spokesman Mike Alvich.
Riders in Reno also have the options of connecting with Sierra Spirit - a free downtown shuttle service that also goes to the University of Reno - and other bus routes.
Megabus.com, a subsidiary of Coach USA, was launched in 2006.
