"Breast cancer has affected thousands of our passengers, in one way or another. We hear stories of friends and families using megabus.com to visit loved ones during this challenging time. We thought it would be great to offer a fun escape as well," said Sean Hughes, Director of Corporate Affairs at megabus.com. "Breast cancer awareness is an important cause for our employees and their families. What better way to give back as a company than to pack our pink BCRF bus with someone's friends and family for some well-needed fun."

Since partnering in 2016, Megabus.com has donated nearly $40,000 to BCRF to date. Last October, megabus.com debuted its BCRF pink bus by hitting the road on a nationwide tour in conjunction with a ticket sale donation. This year the pink bus will continue its journey traveling to cities including New York City, Washington DC and Boston. For every contest entry during the month of October, megabus.com will donate a dollar to BCRF, up to $10,000.

By supporting BCRF, the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S., megabus.com is moving research forward," said Myra Biblowit, BCRF President & CEO. "Our partnership continues to drive home the critical importance of funding breast cancer research."
