Is megabus safe?

I'm going to take megabus from LA(union station) to Oakland at night(12am) for Thanksgiving. I'm going to have my luggage with me so I'm wondering if I need to watch out for anything. Is it safe to ride it? Can I trust that the bus will be safe? Or do I need to be alert and should I have some way of defending myself?

    The LA to Oakland/San Francisco service has only been in operation a couple of months.

    Yahoo have a group for Megabus enthusiasts, with 241 members.

    I'm certain you should get some helpful info and reviews there:

    The Megabus site has contact information too:

    You can email them directly from their site to enquire about their safety precautions.

    Personally I'd be more concerned about getting off the bus at night in Oakland.
