Traveling Between DC & NYC? Consider Taking The Bus

May 12, 2020

Admit­ted­ly we are bias when it comes to bus trav­el. It’s of course our method of choice.  When we opened Trip­per Bus over a decade ago we had a desire to give New York­ers and Wash­ing­to­ni­ans a bet­ter way to trav­el to and from NYC and the DC sub­urbs with­out hav­ing to go into Wash­ing­ton, DC and then back out to the sub­urbs or vice ver­sa.

For quite some time trav­el by bus was looked down upon as a means to get to a des­ti­na­tion. Fast for­ward to 2020, bus trav­el has changed as has it’s per­cep­tion. Today bus trav­el is often pre­ferred in lieu of oth­er meth­ods. Espe­cial­ly when it comes to direct des­ti­na­tion trav­el.

Pas­sen­gers have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to board lux­u­ry coach’s com­plete with ameni­ties. Coach­es that are well cared for and clean. New and com­fort­able. When Trip­per Bus began oper­a­tion over a decade ago we aimed to be a part of some­thing new. Our goal was to change the per­cep­tion of bus trav­el and pro­vide pas­sen­gers with a qual­i­ty, afford­able and effi­cient ser­vice to get to their desired des­ti­na­tion. Now with over 5 awards for Best Bus to NYC from the Wash­ing­ton City Paper reader’s poll, a stel­lar review from the Wash­ing­ton Post and sev­er­al oth­er hon­ors lat­er, we’re a top choice for res­i­dents of Arling­ton, Bethes­da and the sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties and New York­ers who want a sim­ple way to access the DC area sub­urbs and Man­hat­tan.

Here are a few things you need to know about our service:

  • It’s all about the details. Every bus gets a detailed night­ly when return­ing from trav­el. Our bus­es are also cleaned in between trips.
  • You’ll notice our bus­es are well main­tained and updat­ed. We are con­tin­u­al­ly adding to our fleet and retir­ing bus­es that have served us well.
  • Trip­per Bus­es are equipped with com­pli­men­ta­ry WIFI and elec­tri­cal out­lets to keep you con­nect­ed why you com­mute.
  • On board enjoy com­pli­men­ta­ry movie pack­ages on most of our bus­es allow­ing you access to movies and tele­vi­sion series on your per­son­al device.
  • The cus­tomer expe­ri­ence is a big deal to us. Our stan­dards are high when it comes to cus­tomer ser­vice. From the moment you check in to when you arrive at your des­ti­na­tion, we want you to feel wel­come and well cared for on board. Our team val­ue’s all feed­back both pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive. We like know­ing what you enjoyed, and the areas we can improve to serve you bet­ter.

Trip­per Bus offers two options for pas­sen­gers to choose from. Our stan­dard Trip­per Bus, and our Trip­per Elite Bus ser­vice which boasts of few­er seats, captain’s chairs and more leg room. Both of our ser­vices pro­vide com­fort and con­ve­nience. Trip­per Bus picks up and drops off in Ross­lyn, Vir­ginia, Bethes­da, Mary­land and in Mid­town Man­hat­tan just out­side of Penn Sta­tion.

It’s won­der­ful see­ing famil­iar faces each week. Some of our pas­sen­gers have been with us since the begin­ning and still use our ser­vice today. There’s no greater com­pli­ment.  If you need to trav­el between NYC and the DC sub­urbs, we invite you to give Trip­per Bus a try.
