Twin Cities travelers looking to head to St. Louis or Chicago now have another option.

Megabus.com made its first stop in Normal earlier today. Riders must make their reservations on-line.

The first two-to-four people who buy tickets on the Internet for a route only have to pay $1 plus a 50-cent service fee. After that ticket prices can go up to $17 for a one-way ticket.

Driver Jackie Luckett said, "They say they like it this way. They say it's cheaper, more convenient, no complaints. It's been like this a little over a year now."

There were no riders from Normal on the 11:15 a.m route from St. Louis heading to Chicago.

A 7:15 evening route also picks up riders at the Amtrak Station and arrives in St. Louis at 10:30 p.m.

Twin City passengers also have the option of traveling to 10 other Midwest cities.
