Megabus, Tripper, or Boltbus from Wash DC to NYC. Which one is better?

Jump to last reply

I will be coming back from Washington DC Union Station at the end of this month-Saturday to New York City/Newark. I can't afford Amtrak, so, I have to take the bus. I went online and checked out the reviews for Megabus, Tripper and Boltbus. To my dismay, none of them are consistently good from being late to leave and arrive, to the staff being rude, unorganized, nasty bathrooms, broken outlets for computers and no WI-FI.

My priority is getting back safe and sound. However, I am very tall-6'2" and I can't stand my legs cramped up for 5 hours on the bus. No way!! Boltbus advertises that they have extra leg room. Is that true? I understand that they pick up right a/inside of Union Station versus the other buses. I need to book my trip right away. I was given a price of $17 plus $3 dollars to process the transaction over the phone.

Which bus do you suggest? Boltbus, Megabus, or Tripper?
