    Hi, Im visiting the USA in April and will be travelling by coach between New York and Philadelphia, Philadelphia and Washington D.C and Washington D.C and New York.

    I have used various website to get fares and times.

    Has anyone used BoltBus or Eastern? are there any other coach companies??

    Cheers in advance...

    Boltbus and Megabus are both excellent choices when commuting along the northeast corridor. They have specific schedules, low fares, and are convenient. I would definitely recommend.

    jprichva saidTraveling by coach, eh?
    Well, first you want one that stops at the end of the day at one of the nicer inns, especially if they have good clean stables for the horses and someone on staff to groom them so they're fresh and ready for the next morning's ride.

    Also, be sure the coach driver has a musket to hand; some coaches on these roads have been attacked in the past by privateers.

    If I had my way, I'd always travel with a 'coach'...icon_redface.gif

    Im afraid due to the US$ not being what it used to be, I have decided to use the coach. Normally I would fly but I feel that Her majesty's subject must rough it with the plebs!

    Amtrak is also not a bad alternative... a little more cost perhaps, but still, not a bad alternative.

    I know greyhound has a extensive list of stops in many US states you could try there also if you haven't already.
