How to Get More Done While Driving

Do you ever feel like you need more time? Time to check your email. Time to get caught up on work. Time to get that text sent. If you feel like you're constantly using your phone to play catch up and get quick texts and emails sent while you're on the go (read: in the car), you aren't alone. 

Every week, 56 people in the United States will die in a car crash caused by a distracted driver.

So while you certainly aren't alone, that doesn't mean you're safe. 

When you're commuting long distances or traveling on a road trip, there is a safer choice that lets you get everything you want to do on your computer or smart phone done safely! CGL sponsor, Megabus offers service between 120 North American cities and includes free onboard wifi and electric outlets so you can crush candy, text friends or craft brilliant emails while you let someone else handle the driving! It's perfect for kids traveling to and from college, for work travel or in place of the traditional road trip.


Not only does traveling via megabus let you enjoy your time working or playing (that candy isn't going to crush itself!) or streaming instead of driving, Megabus is also a great green transportation option! Any time you can transport groups of people in one large gas powered vehicle (bus) instead of lots of tiny gas powered vehicles, that's a win for air quality!

Megabus gets high marks for safety! The entire fleet is outfitted with seatbelts and each bus has two drivers on board during all late night (12-5am) routes. Megabus also exceeds industry standards for maximum shift length and minimum break periods. Smart tracking through GreenRoad on buses to manage things like tire pressure, speed and location also help make for a safer riding experience. Things like this contribute to their success maintaining the highest safety compliance rating from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
