Why Take the Bus from DC to NY or Philly?

Plan Ahead and Save 25% or More When You Ride the Train

Even with plenty to do in Washington, DC, there are still many places to visit just a few hours away and on a budget. With quick connections for travel to New York and Philadelphia or south to destinations such as Virginia Beach or Richmond, you can save 25% or more off the lowest available fares. Book at least 14 days ahead of time for travel on the Northeast Regional to get these great fares. If you took the bus from DC to NY last time you went exploring, try Amtrak on your next trip. You'll bypass congested highways when you let us do the driving.

With comfortable seating, plenty of legroom and extra storage space for your luggage, you'll be able to relax en route to your next destination. Plan a day in New York or if you set a southern course, have a day of fun at Busch Gardens in historic Williamsburg, VA.
