The “Hot Route” between Washington, DC & NYC!

Feb 13, 2024

The I-95 corridor might be one of the nations most traveled routes. Specifically, between the nation’s capital and New York City. With a daytrip being completely feasible, locals have discovered how to work, play and jaunt between the two with ease.


Of course, we’re talking about travel via bus. And yes, we’re experts on bus travel so we decided to answer some of the most frequent questions we receive from passengers.


1. How long is the trip between DC & NYC? A: On average, the trip will be around 4.5 hours. This of course is an estimate and is the typical travel time however, external factors such as traffic and road closures can impact the time. We advise all passengers to schedule accordingly. If you have a time-sensitive event, choose a schedule that will allow you plenty of excess time once you arrive.


2. Where do you pick-up and drop-off? A: We recently began partnering with Washington Deluxe Bus to add additional locations in both DC and NYC. We’ve proudly served the DC Metro area suburbs of Arlington, VA & Bethesda, MD for over a decade and now offer departures from DC’s Dupont Circle. In New York City, we depart and arrive in midtown just outside of famed Penn Station, and also in Brooklyn, NY.


3. Are there restrooms on board? A: Yes, there is a restroom on board every bus. It is cleaned by our crew in-between every trip. Additionally, our driver may stop mid-route at the Delaware house for passengers to be able to have a quick break. This stop typically lasts for 15 minutes. This stop is not a guaranteed part of the route and is up to driver discretion. Often the drivers will poll passengers to see if a quick stop is desired.


4. Does the wifi on board work? A: It does! We have recently upgraded our routers for greater dependability. Like most public wifi, the strength is dependent on the number of passengers utilizing the service.


5. How do I make sure I book your ELITE bus? A: Look for the word “Elite” next to the schedule when booking. Our standard service will also be listed, but our ELITE schedules are specifically marked so be sure to double-check when booking, if you’re looking for our luxury bus.


The above are our most frequently asked questions. If you have additional questions, do check out our FAQ page, or give us a call and speak with a member of our team.  We look forward to having you on-board.
