Best Way- without a car- from New Rochelle, New York to New Bedford, Mass?

My 75-year-old aunt and son are going to a wedding over Labor Day weekend in New Bedford. They don't drive, so what is the best way with the fewest connections for them to get there?

Thanks!!

Have you checked to see if Amtrak goes between the two points?

I think they can take Amtrak (NE REgional service) from New Rochelle to Providence, RI. From Providence Amtrak Station, they need to get to the Peter Pan bus station and take a Peter Pan bus to New Bedford.

I think you'd take Amtrak from New Rochelle to Providence, and then you could get a Peter Pan bus from Providence to New Bedford.

C_C or others - It looks to me that the Providence Amtrak Station and the Providence Peter Pan station ARE NOT at the same place. Perhaps a 10-min walk between the 2? I'm not familiar with it.
