Around 16 seats on each journey can be reserved, allowing passengers a chance to ensure they can sit with friends or get a window seat. The system went live on Monday 30 September, and is available on all services in England and Wales, as well as cross-border services into Scotland. The reserved seats will be identifiable by new bespoke headrest covers.

megabus Managing Director Mark Venables said: “We’re always looking for new and innovative ideas to improve our customer offer, and enabling people to choose seats in advance is another way of making travel with megabus more attractive, both to new and existing customers. We’ve been amazed by how many people have been using the system, and with over 35,000 people already reserved on specific seats, it’s a great sign of the continued popularity of our services. Everyone is still guaranteed a seat, just that now customers in groups or who really like the front row can make a reservation. There’s never been a better time to try the megabus.”
