Frequently Asked Questions

Is it cheaper to drive or take the coach from DC to NYC?

It's typically cheaper and more convenient to take a bus from DC to New York City instead of driving your own vehicle. Most bus tickets for this route are relatively inexpensive, whereas driving your own car can incur expenses upwards of $100 depending on whether you use toll roads and where you end up parking once you reach New York. By taking an intercity bus instead, you don't have to worry about paying tolls, New York's expensive parking, the cost of gas, or the stress of driving in one of the world's most congested cities.

Our coach partners have implemented several different policies to keep you safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cons: There should be punctuality for arrival time. Unusual layovers should be avoided that further delays the bus. In my bus driver had to wait at a spot waiting for another bus to come and then the drivers had to switch the buses. Once the other bus arrived, plans changed and they didn’t have to switch anymore.. Tips: A light blanket is good to have or a light jacket for AC cooling.More
