Summer is just around the corner and if you’re like me, you want to get up, get out and travel. With long, sunny days ahead, why not adventure and hit the road?

Before you groan over the idea of having to drive long distances, navigate and fight traffic, we want you to know that there is another option. An option you may not have considered, that supports military families of fallen and disabled heroes.

Imagine relaxing, catching up on work, connecting via social media, plugging your kids into a movie, taking a snooze or simply enjoying panoramic views from the top of a double decker bus. Sounds ideal, doesn’t it?

Meet Megabus, the affordable, relaxing and green alternative way to travel. Their modern double-decker fleet serves over 100 cities, and offers tickets at low as $1, bookable from your computer or smartphone. Even better? Megabus is honoring our military service members this Memorial Day with its first ever Camo Bus.

Ride the Camo Bus!

Throughout the month of May, the Camo Bus will be traveling across the U.S. This camouflage-wrapped bus will showcase support of our fallen and disabled military heroes and their families.

Why buy a ticket for this patriotic ride? For every passenger who rides the Camo Bus during the month of May, Megabus will donate $1 to Folds of Honor. The organization provides an educational scholarship to a child or spouse of a fallen or wounded service member. Their motto says it best: Honor their sacrifice. Educate their legacy.

To date, has donated nearly $100,000 to military organizations.
