Pros
Bus departed on time, boarding was easy, and the bus made pretty good time considering the traffic.
Cons
It was way too cold on the bus - felt like somewhere in the 60 degrees range. I would think closer to 72 degrees would be more reasonable to satisfy those who like it colder and warmer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to travel from Bethesda to NYC?

The best way to travel from Bethesda to NYC is by bus. Traveling by train would require you to commute into Washington, DC, and Amtrak tickets between DC and New York are expensive — averaging about $113. For contrast, bus tickets between Bethesda and New York City average just $37.

That said, if a speedy trip is more important to you than price, a train may be a better option. Most Amtrak trips average between 3 and 3.5 hours, whereas a bus trip is closer to 4.5 hours.

In terms of flights, nonstop options cost more than $100, with an average travel time of about 1 hour 15 minutes. Combined with the time it would take you to get to commute to the airport and get through security, it would probably take as long as a bus or train trip, making it the least appealing option of the three.

Is Bethesda to NYC a good day-trip?

Since the typical travel time from Bethesda to New York is about 4 hours and 30 minutes, it doesn’t make for a very good day-trip. The first bus of the day departs at 5:00 a.m., and the last return trip departs New York around 7:00 p.m., meaning a day-trip would be possible if you had an appointment or a meeting. That said, you’d be in for a lot of time on the bus, and would probably be better off staying overnight.

How much does a bus ticket from Bethesda to New York cost?

Based on the last 30 days, the cheapest average bus fares from Bethesda to New York were $50.71.

Looking for ways to pass the time? Most buses are equipped with Wi-Fi, which means you can stream music, browse social media or get some work done during your ride.
