Special thanks to two of my friends, YY and Emz, I learnt that other than taking the plane, another way to travel from Boston to New York, we could take an express bus. Trains are also one alternative to travel to New York from Boston, yet I learnt that they are at least four times more expensive than buses.
After reviewing the various options that were available and asking around for feedback from friends, I chose BoltBus as the bus service-provider to travel from Boston to New York. The departure time from Boston was one of my key considerations. Reliability was also another considerations.
