Re: The real question

Megabus is owned by Stagecoach who own:

East Midlands Trains

South West Trains

Sheffield Supertram

Island Line Trains (Part of the SWT Franchise I believe)

and own 49% (or there abouts) shares in:

Virgin Trains West Coast

Virgin Trains East Coast (To commence in 2015)

That is how Megabus are able to offer tickets so cheap on those train services. As I understand it easygroup do not own or part own any TOC in the UK.
