Looking to travel between Washington D.C. and New York City and don’t want to deal with the crazy prices, uncomfortable atmosphere, or discomfort of one of the regional trains? Well, The Jet, is a luxury bus service that that exclusively travels between the two cities and includes motion-canceling and reclining seats, complimentary drinks, and wifi that is fast and reliable!
What is The Jet?
As stated above, The Jet is a luxury bus service that offers a form of transportation to shuttle travelers between New York City and Washington D.C. in comfort and style! The bus service typically has three rides scheduled per day that you can reserve a seat on, and depending on which city you are starting from the buses may depart in the morning (D.C. towards NYC) or the afternoon (NYC towards D.C.). The tickets are very comparable to basic Amtrak tickets in terms of price, settling in around $90 – $199 in price depending on how last minute you buy your tickets, as always the earlier you plan your trip and buy your ticket, the cheaper it will be.
The service boasts luxury services like world-class comfort comparable to that of the experience of flying on a private plane with limited seating (only 19 seats per bus), with motion-canceling technology to ensure you don’t feel any bumps along the way, an upscale regularly maintained restroom and of course high-powered WiFi available throughout the journey.
What can you expect on a ride with The Jet?
It’s important to note that while The Jet is certainly an alternative to Amtrak options or even flights, what separates this form of transportation is not travel time or price, but comfort. You can expect complimentary drinks such as wine or water on board and even will get to experience a fresh hot facial towel as part of the experience, so while the trip is typically going to take around four hours, the entire time you will be able to sit back in relax, or if necessary, stay completely connected with the outside world and work using their constant wifi.
The bus picks up in D.C. at 565 13th St. NW. and drops off at Hudson Yards at 565 West 33rd St. Would you give it a try?
