DC2NY’s bus drivers negotiate with the highway’s hassles while passengers enjoy a peaceful trip to and from New York City. To start their trip, travelers board the Big Apple–bound chariot at the DC pickup locations—Dupont Circle or Union Station—or the Virginia pickup locations—Vienna/Fairfax-GMU or Franconia-Springfield Metro stops. Once comfortably settled into their seats, passengers relax during the ride by making use of the bus’s free WiFi or by singing “The Wheels on the Bus” into a curling iron plugged into one of the on-board electrical outlets. Clean, on-board restrooms and complimentary water are provided during the bus trip. After approximately 4.5 hours, riders disembark in Manhattan at 33rd Street near 7th Avenue, the same location at which they will board for the return trip, either the same day or on a different one, and, in the future, learn a valuable lesson about the meaning of life. DC2NY buses run laps between the destinations daily; check the Washington, DC to New York schedule or the Virginia to New York schedule for an idea of departure times.

Leave it to a DC bus company to build its service upon democratic principles: BestBus lets its riders vote on issues such as whether or not to make rest stops. This novel approach to customer service was developed by a senior management team with decades of experience in the hospitality industry. Their experience making people feel at home also shows in the modern fleet of buses, which are equipped with free WiFi and bottled water, well-kept bathrooms, and electrical outlets on every seat.
