The West Virginia Republican had already planned on riding into town with a dozen or so local college students his office recruited to accompany him on his inaugural Megabus town hall.  

For those who don’t know, McKinley is an ardent supporter of the discount carrier.  

On this latest trip, which will depart Morgantown, W.Va. at 8 a.m., McKinley plans to chew the fat with a handful of preselected  travel companions plucked from the campuses of West Virginia University and Fairmont State University. “It’s going to be a pretty free-ranging discussion,” a McKinley aide told HOH about the roughly four-hour conversation that’s expected to unfold.  

Per the aide, anything and everything is on the table, including jobs, health care or the swirling Syria/ISIS crisis.  

Can’t find your bus pass?  

Tweet a question (or 20) to #megabusMcKinleyTH once things get underway.  

As McKinley is fond of pointing out, the bus is Wi-Fi enabled. So he won’t be able to say he was unreachable while on his way to work.
