travel from washington d.c. to new york

We two are senior citizens from New Zealand looking for a comfortable way of travel from Wahington to N.Y. Train or plane? Any advice will be much appreciated.

I like taking Amtrak for that route. Comfortable and easy

Train (Amtrak) is definitely comfortable, easy, and about the same amount of time when you count in travel times to and from airports plus security.

I really love taking Amtrak from DC to NYC. However, some times it can be too expensive. In that case, try the Vamoose bus.

The bus is a cheaper alternative to Amtrak. However, just note that buses often get stuck in traffic and when that happens, your trip ends up being longer that it would be on the train. If you don't have time constraints, then, yes, consider the bus.
