Megabus unveils new onboard entertainment system, Megabus RIDE
Long-distance bus travelers in the US and Canada will not only reach their destination safely and comfortably with megabus, but on the way they will be able to surf the Internet, or watch popular movies and television shows.
The infotainment solution allows travelers to access a varied range of digital content, as well as relevant information and services for their trip.
Travelers can use this interactive and user-friendly solution on their own smartphone, tablet or laptop by connecting their device of choice to a secure local network. On mobile devices and tablets, customers can download the Megabus RIDE app to access the vast library of current entertainment options.
Based on easily configurable parameters, the Megabus RIDE app enables passengers to retrieve current information before and during the trip then enables users to complete a satisfaction survey immediately after the trip.
“Megabus is excited to be further enhancing our customer experience” said Colin Emberson, Commercial Director at megabus. "Our customers already appreciate the ability to be connected and powered while travelling.
The addition of the megabus RIDE onboard entertainment system to our existing suite of amenities is an important enhancement to our goals of providing safe, affordable and reliable travel."
