As of Spring 2011, Pittsburgh is a stop on he discount busline, Megabus. Megabus serves Pittsburgh in fewer routes than it used to, reaching New York via State College, Pa.; Philadelphia via Harrisburg, Pa.; and Washington DC via Morgantown, WVa. MegaBus stops in Pittsburgh on 10th Street (near Penn Avenue) under the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, which is two blocks from the Greyhound station and the Amtrak station.
