Getting from one place to another can be awfully expensive these days, and I've noticed airfare prices creeping up steadily all month. But if you're willing to remain on the ground, you could score a free trip on select MegaBus routes. The carrier is giving away 130,000 seats on trips between 50 cities in the Northeast and Midwest through March 1.
Popular destinations from New York include Atlantic City, Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Washington, D.C., and more.
Even if you score a free ticket, expect to pay a whopping 50-cent booking fee. And when all the free seats are gone, prices will start at a dollar.
