Inter-city buses canceling trips

By Luke Rosiak

Thursday morning update: BoltBus service is canceled today, but is anticipated to resume tomorrow.

MegaBus says "service is getting back to normal in the Northeast, although delays are possible."

DC2NY says afternoon buses are running.

Wednesday: Buses making trips to New York and other major cities are cancelling trips departing tonight and especially tomorrow. Capital Weather Gang is estimating 3 to 10 inches of snow tonight, and the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning until 4am Thursday.

Megabus has canceled the following trips to New York departing at 1:15, 5:10, 7:10, 8:10, and 11:10pm. It's also canceling trips returning from New York departing at 1:30, 8:30 and 11pm.

Tomorrow, it's not running the trip from New York to Washington scheduled to depart at 1:15am. Check its Web site for changes.

BoltBus is canceling today's 7:30 p.m. trip to New York City and all service tomorrow.

Would-be riders can check its Web site for the latest. It cancels service when the Department of Transportation shuts it down, the company said.

DC2NY has canceled both afternoon buses today and morning buses tomorrow. It says service will resume tomorrow afternoon.

Greyhound has already canceled service between New York and Boston, though has not called off all trips out of D.C. Check details here.

Also, as of yesterday, Greyhound and Peter Pan will no longer operate service at the Baltimore Travel Plaza, but instead from the Greyhound terminal in Downtown Baltimore located at 2110 Haines Street, Baltimore, MD 21201.

Eastern Shuttle (the "Chinatown bus," which also runs out of Rockville) was still selling tickets as of Wednesday afternoon, but encourages customers to call the phone number on their tickets to confirm.

Further trips could be canceled, so be sure to check before heading to the pick-up point, and keep alternate arrangements in mind.
