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.
