Ratings and Reviews
At best this app is like low grade airplane movies. On 2 of my past 4 trips the platform has not worked, one of which had no wifi at all. Maybe Ride is the only wifi function now? On one of the trips where it was available and did work, the connection was poor. If I left the screen to do something else almost everything I clicked back to it, I would have to reconnect from the permissions step and select things all over again, especially if I don't close the app it shouldn't have trouble holding connection in the background.
Selection is Meh. There are a few good movies, mostly blockbuster failures and a season or two of a couple shows, if you like Big Bang Theory you'll be fine. In the age of unlimited plans I'd say use your data and stream your own stuff like you would anywhere else without wifi.
WiFi Runaround-- doesn't work
First Megabus experience and probably my last. (Except for the return trip alas.) Bus was way late arrival to Syracuse on way to NYC. Already partly full with grumps who don't share seats. Then WiFi not working And nonexistent charging outlet. Not like the pic on the app.
Scuzzy bathroom too. Don't drink coffee on this trip. Plus the upper deck weaving around will give you carsickness... and I never get carsick until -- unfortunately the first deckers know this and make it hard to share their seats. Bus is ok otherwise-but the driver and fellow passengers are no fun. Plus the seatbelts don't work (not retracting) as I wanted the security and a little stability to be able to nap.
I've taken multiple trips on the megabus to and from NYC and this app is a great addition to their existing service. Right now there are about 25 movies to choose from and a few TV shows, while connected to megabus wi-fi.
