I hate that it's so expensive to get upstate from NYC for people visiting. The best I found is 31 dollars one way to Syracuse which is a 1 hour ish drive from Ithaca. The direct bus is like 55 dollars one way to Ithaca.
Hell, you can go to Boston from NYC for 15 bucks =X
You can get the megabus from NYC to Binghamton --which is about an hour south of Ithaca. It would be a much shorter bus trip than to Syracuse (about 3 1/2 hours) and if you get it in advance it can be really cheap (like, under $10.) Yeah, the C2C is luxurious, but it's super expensive.
Hey! Thanks for the inside advice. The best I found for NYC to Bing was $39 (http://us.megabus.com/JourneyResults.as ... thReturn=0) .. Am I doing it wrong ? If you do it a month in advance (the furthest it lets you) it's about $24! I'd love ~15 though!
I think the day of the week is a big factor --in this search, you can travel on a Tuesday for $7 (plus the illustrious $1 ticket!) but Friday travel, as well as Saturday-Monday presumably, it goes back up to $24+.
