If you’ve ever traveled along the Boston to DC corridor for leisure, there is a good chance that you decided to take one of the “curbside buses” (e.g., Megabus or BoltBus). If you’re driving by yourself, making the trip is extremely cost-prohibitive and does not significantly reduce overall travel time compared to the bus. Tolls alone can exceed $20 and increasing gas prices could easily add an additional $45 each way. Keep in mind that you’ll also need to find a parking spot in these often congested cities. On the other hand, taking the bus can cost less than tolls alone. Plus, you get access to electrical outlets and Wifi at no additional cost. You can basically use that time which you would spend driving to conduct other business or even indulge in some pleasures. Additionally, it also turns out to be a great opportunity to meet new people.
