Help planning my trip

Postby justhockey31 » Tue Jan 25, 2011 3:10 am

Well I need to visit NYC, DC, and Lexington Va in a matter of 2 weeks. My plan so far is to fly from upstate NY in to NYC...train from NYC to DC...and then I'm stuck. Does anyone know of a good bus/train company that goes from DC to Lexington Va cheaply? Thanks!

You might try the Greyhound bus line. I personally rented a car and drove it from UNC up to DC while stopping at W&M and UVA. Didn't have time to make it over to Lexington, unfortunately.

But yeah, renting a car is expensive! So I wouldn't really recommend it.

Bolt Bus is the best option for going from NYC to DC if you're worried about money. If money isn't an issue, train all the way!

Is there a train from DC to Lexington? I am pretty satisfied with taking the amtrak from NYC to DC ($40, 3.5 hr trip) but I do not think that train goes to Lexington...

W&L's website says that there are no train stations in Lexington. Their website also says there is no Greyhound bus service.. yikes! http://www.wlu.edu/x22379.xml

Haha, that would definitely be a con in my book. I have a car, but I wouldn't like to live where I need one.. I guess you have to rent a car or carpool or something?

I'm guessing you have never been to Lexington...
Renting a car from DC would suck but its an option, its about 2.5 hours from DC on average.


No I have never been there but you would think with school there would be some sort of transportation...No bus, no train, no airport within an hour...its in the middle of nowhere
