Hi there! We are 5 adults going to NYC from Sept 5-15 and then DC from Sept 15-18.
Amtrak tickets from NYC to DC are quite expensive and trains with checked baggage have very inconvenient schedules (3am and 7am). For this reason, we have decided to get there by bus.
Someone I know who lived in NYC has recommended we try the Chinatown bus which costs $20 and has frequent departures. However, I would really like to know what your opinion is on this.
Also, I have some doubts as to whether they admit large suitcases and if we should buy our tickets online or not.
