hi helpful tripadvisors!
i need to get from philly to nyc tomorrow morning. thought about borrowing a car because I don't mind driving in either city and last minute Amtrak is really expensive. but after doing some research Think ill take a bus and wondering if anyone has ever taken either mega bus or bolt bus? the prices are comparable. is one better/cleaner/smoother than the other?
I also am curious if they run on time. it says that at 8am it will only take 2 hours but can that really be the case with rush hour traffic? I need to be in ny at 10.30am at the latest.
