Bussing to DC

Alright, so, I'm planning on taking a bus from New York City to Washington DC this weekend. Can anyone tell me what the most affordable/comfortable/convenient company to travel with is? Or are they pretty much all identical.

    Yea! The Chinatown bus. Also there's this new service called BoltBus. Can't get any more affordable than that. And the buses have wi-fi.

    A friend just took this bus to NYC from DC and loved it. Free WIFI.

    In response to the below, the bus I have linked here is nicer than greyhound AND their pickup/dropoff point in DC is in a much better and more convenient neighborhood. Getting picked up/dropped off in Dupont or Chinatown is much closer to the metro than the DC Greyhound terminal, which is a 10+ minute walk from the nearest metro.

    I would avoid the chinatown bus at all costs. You can get a cheap fare through greyhound/peter pan and travel out of port authority. Peter pan is always better than greyhound, but their ticketing is the same, as are their departure gates etc. Peter pan drivers are better paid and trained, and they show movies on their buses during most trips which greyhound never does.

    As for fare, if you buy your ticket online through greyhound's site, and click on the link for discount fares to/from NYC, you can get a round trip for $30.

    Unfortunately, western cultures frown upon arranged marriages, so the vast majority of people have to take risks in order to get into relationships.
