Megabus Canada Carry On 2019 - Cabin Bag Size & Weight Limit

Customers can take on board one small piece of hand luggage that will fit in the overhead storage compartment or under the seat. Please keep in mind that the overhead storage compartments on buses are usually smaller than those found on airplanes.

Maximum bag sizes that are commonly used for airline carry-on, such as wheeled rectangular bags are typically too large to be taken onboard the bus and will not be permitted in the passenger area.

We suggest a bag with dimensions no larger than a briefcase as being about the correct size for carriage onto the bus.

Megabus Canada Overweight Baggage Fee 2019 - Extra Bag Fee - Oversize Baggage

Megabus will not accept additional pieces of luggage to be placed under the bus. If space permits, you may be able to bring a second suitcase, but the company makes no guarantee that it will be able to fit it onto the bus. Megabus does not offer a refund for travel if you are refused your additional luggage.
