Train or bus DC to NYC

Jump to last reply

I was all set to book our tickets through Amtrak on the Northeast Regional train from Washington DC to NYC, just doing some final research before hitting the button then read a post about how luggage unfriendly Penn Station is. Would a porter to help us navigate, we want to get the subway downtown to 14th Street? If so how much do we tip?

I would love your thoughts then on train versus bus. We will have a medium suitcase each, DH wears a daypack and I will have a small cabin size roller.

Pro's for bus is having our luggage stored for the trip and maybe easier access at the Port Authority terminus. Which bus line to use?

Is the train more reliable time wise? We will be traveling on a Thursday mid morning in November.
