Megabus Suspends All Service to and from New York City
State College, PA – State College and Patton Township were made aware of community concerns about the Megabus transportation service from New York City to State College. Patton Township Police contacted Megabus management to discuss the community health concerns and was informed that Megabus has suspended all service to and from New York City effective immediately because of the health concerns in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. There is still one of their buses in transit to State College that will be arriving in State College later this afternoon.
We would like to thank the excellent collaboration from many including our residents, Megabus management team, Patton Township and other local and county municipal partners.
According to Megabus’s website:
New York City Trips
In an abundance of caution and supporting the recommendation that anyone traveling from New York self-quarantine for 14 days, we have suspended all Megabus service in and out of New York City through Thursday, April 9th.
Coach USA will continue to run our local commuter services on the current reduced schedules. These services provide a safe means of travel for those essential workers for whom it is vital that they are able to travel to their place of work, in particular healthcare and utility workers.
All passengers booked on trips in and out of New York during this time will receive an email with instructions on how to reschedule their trip.
