Amtrak will have one less competitor in East Lansing, Michigan, after Megabus stops its service between there and Chicago on Jan. 9.
Lack of customer demand and a corporate restructuring were behind the decision to pull out of the East Lansing-Chicago market, said Megabus spokesman Sean Hughes.
He also cited low fuel prices and competition from other bus companies.
Hughes indicated the Megabus next month will be cutting other routes serving Chicago.
Other bus companies that operate between East Lansing and Chicago include Greyhound and Indian Trails.
Megabus currently also serves Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids in Michigan.
News reports have indicated that Megabus will also cease service in Iowa in January where it stops in Davenport, Coralville (near Iowa City) and Des Moines on a Chicago-Omaha, Nebraska, route.
