Enroute To New York

image

A scene from the bus to Boston, South Station, where I will board the Amtrak Acela for New York. (You may be able to read the list of this month’s bus movies. Evan Almighty just got done playing.) I left my house @ 6:50am and expect to arrive @ 3:45pm in Penn Station. Flying from Bangor (very expensive and no direct flights — last time I did I flew to Detroit then NYC) or Portland (a two hour drive each way and less flexibility for times) require more trade-offs for time saved. So if a rapid arrival is not the only priority, this is the best way out of the wilds of Maine and into Metro US…and you may notice that this is a popular option: the bus is full. I got the LAST seat in Augusta.
