Bus companies expand D.C. to New York service to Union Station

Bus travel from Washington to New York just got a little bit easier.

Three companies began service Monday from Union Station to New York. The companies are Boltbus, Washington Deluxe and DC2NY. They leave from the station's parking garage.

"Union Station is the heart of our transit network, where Amtrak, Metrorail, Metrobus, the Circulator and our first bicycle transit center all connect," said Gabe Klein, the director of the District Department of Transportation. "So it makes sense to add intercity bus service to that mix to for travelers coming in and out of the city."

Boltbus says it will offer four daily round trips from Union Station on Monday through Thursday and Saturday and six round trips on Friday and Saturday. The company already had buses that leave from 10th and H streets.

DC2NY already has stops at Dupont Circle and 14th Street. Washington Deluxe has four other departure points in Washington.

According to DDOT, the service will be reevaluated after a six-month trial period.

You've got two Saturdays in there? I'm assuming the 6 buses are on Friday and Sunday but always best to double check.

10th and H NW, right? because 10th and H NE isn't far from Union Station.

You need to make sure to remember the quadrant. Just because you work and spend most of your time in NW doesn't mean everyone else does.

What is your point? I live in Silver Spring but take the metro to get to 10th and H or Union station when travelling on the bus. Do you want it to be somewhere in NE or SE where getting in and out of there is a pain, let alone dangerous?

he meant 10th and H NW... the site of the old convention center.

and to Jabreal00 while getting to 10th and H NE would be more difficult than NW, it is no more dangerous than the other. keep your unfounded stereotypes in silver spring.
