      Double-decker bus service coming to area
      By Bill Shea

      Double-decker busses aren't just for Londoners anymore.

      A double-decker express bus service that requires Internet reservations
      begins Wednesday between Detroit and Chicago.

      The company is offering $1 tickets for a limited number of seats. After all
      $1 tickets have sold, prices increase incrementally.

      Chicago-based Megabus.com, a subsidiary of Coach USA, has 17
      wheelchair-accessible 79-passenger double-decker buses and is integrating
      them into already-scheduled routes, which include stops in Ann Arbor,
      Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Kansas City,
      Minneapolis, St. Louis and Toledo.

      A launch date hasn't been set for the Ann Arbor-to-Chicago route, which won't
      be connected to Detroit. The service is expected to be fully implemented by
      January.

      Bookings are made through www.megabus.com.

      The Detroit stops are at Cass Avenue adjacent to the Wayne State University
      campus and Putnam Street and at the Grand Circus Park People Mover station.
