The service starts on Monday 23rd May and as usual with Megabus ticket prices start at £1 + 50p booking fee.

To London coaches will depart Norwich at 0630 & 1500 calling at the UEA at 0645 & 1520, Thetford at 0730 & 1600 before arriving at London Victoria Coach Station at 1000 & 1830. Returning to Norwich coaches will depart London Victoria Coach Station at 1100 & 1930, calling at Thetford at 1315 & 2145, the UEA at 1400 & 2230 before arriving at Norwich Bus Station at 1415 & 2245.

This isn't the first time Megabus have tried running a service to Norwich, they had previously attempted a once a day service a few years ago but due to lack of interest it only lasted under a year - As a fan of Megabus I for one hope it turns out to be a success this time!
