megabus_italyLeading international transport operator Stagecoach Group launched a new network of inter-city coach services in Italy in June 2015 under its megabus.com brand as part of continuing expansion across mainland Europe.

The new network, launched by Italy's Deputy Transport Minister Riccardo Nencini, links 13 destinations across the country with bargain fares from just €1. The major new network of inter-city coach services covers Rome, Milan, Florence, Venice, Naples, Turin, Bologna, Verona, Padua, Siena, Genoa, Sarzana (La Spezia) and Pisa. As part of its commitment to high standards of customer service, megabus.com has invested in an €11million fleet of 23 state-of-the-art coaches offering free Wifi, power sockets, air conditioning and toilets.

In addition to boosting public transport, tourism and the economy, megabus.com is investing in Italy by creating around 100 new jobs through the opening of new bases near Milan and in Florence.

megabus.com worked with ACS Registrars Ltd on certification to the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system standard to support its entry into the Italian market.

Companies meeting the ISO standard consistently provide products that meet customer needs as well as relevant statutory and regulatory requirements. megabus.com carries more than 15 million passengers a year across Europe and North America. The number of passengers using the company’s growing coach network in Europe is up more than 60% in the past year.
