Starting April 2, discount bus carrier Megabus plans two routes a day between New Orleans and Atlanta, with two stops in Alabama.

The Stagecoach Group PLC subsidiary offers fares starting at $1 and rising as bookings increase and the travel date approaches. Sunday morning, the lowest fares for April 26 were $5 to Atlanta and $8 to New Orleans.

The routes also include stops in Mobile and Montgomery, Ala.

The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/zNJf1H) reports that the double-decker buses will leave New Orleans at 10 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.

They will leave Atlanta for New Orleans at noon and 11:59 p.m.

Megabus launched in the United Kingdom in 2003 and four years ago in the United States and Canada. It opened an Atlanta hub in November.
