best time to drive between DC and NY

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm planning to take a bus from DC to NY this Friday. The bus leaves at 2 p.m.

Can someone with experience tell me if you think I'll hit a lot of traffic? I'm trying to decide if it's worth the premium to take Amtrak.

Also, I have three options for a return bus on Sunday - one departs at 10, the other 11:30, the third at 2. how will traffic be along the route at these times? All else equal, I'd like to take either the 11:30 or 2 pm bus.

Thanks!
