Megabus.com offering 200,000 free seats for travel from Jan. 9 to Feb. 28, 2013

Now adays, flying trumps ground transportation due to the significant speed factor which comes at a reasonable price.  For most travelers, it just doesn't make sense to pay $52 for a 9-hour Greyhound ride from SFO to LAX when a 1-hour flight can be attained for $70.  But what if you were to drop the bus price down to a couple of bucks and make it nonstop and doable in 7 hours?  That's exactly what megabus.com has done in an effort to re-win all that ground transportation business that fell prey to the airline industry decades ago.
Megabus, which initiated service in 2006 for the East Coast and Canada, has officially launched hubs in San Francisco and Los Angeles.  With 6 daily buses between SFO and LAX at an average price of $3 and a sitting time of 7 hours, they've officially made ground transportation a viable and cheap option again.  What's more?  They're currently offering 200,000 free seats for travel from Jan. 9 to Feb. 28, 2013!!  You really can't complain about a free city-to-city ride no matter how long it takes.  Since space is limited and capacity controlled, book your free seats now.  Even if you miss out on this deal, at least it'll only cost you 6 Washington's for a roundtrip bus ride from SFO to LAX.
It should be noted that Megabus does not allow changes or refunds for bookings.  They do, however, offer free WiFi, power outlets, and restrooms to pass the time at ease.  Free luggage allowance includes 1 large <50-pound bag and 1 carry-on personal bag.  This is a good opportunity to bypass long and tedious security lines with incompetent TSA agents and avoid United Airlines' crappy service.
