About 20 passengers were on board for the Megabus’ inaugural trip out of Sparks Wednesday morning.
The private bus carrier is known for its low rates ranging from as low as $1 up to about $30.
Megabus provides transportation from Sparks to Sacramento and then on to San Francisco and back.
The bus departs twice a day, once at 8 a.m. and then again at 3 p.m.
The bus stop is located at the Centennial Plaza in Sparks.
Megabus is paying the Reno Transportation Commission about $600 a month to use their public transportation platform according to RTC Director of Public Transportation and Operation David Jickling.
"This is an exciting new chapter in RTC's history of public transportation and our coordination with private carriers. This is a first and we're excited about it," Jickling says.
The bus operates seven days a week.
