A second vote for the train. There are cheaper options by bus, but I will leave that for others to respond. If you decide on the train, book as early as you can, as fares go up closer to the time of travel.

Megabus.com have fares for $1 but you can only purchase for up to September at the moment. The tickets for November are not released yet. Seems like the trip is just over 4 hours.

From where in NYC are you starting? What's your priority, speed or budget?

Amtrak is most comfortable. Bolt Bus is cheapest (and the best of the cheaper bus companies, IMO).

Depends on when you go. For now, train service is disrupted.

Megabus, Bolt Bus, or Greyhound. Avoid the "Chinatown" bus companies - they're not safe.

Whoops. Missed that. So horrified that Amtrak is out between cities. ... missed the travel date.

Hoping this is a one-time thing and quickly fixed.
