About This Route

Choose a bus when traveling from New York City to Baltimore, Maryland. Buses are greener than taking a car, far cheaper than a plane or a train, and extremely convenient.

When do buses from New York to Baltimore run?

Bus routes from New York to Baltimore easily fit in any travel schedule. With an average of 21 daily departures that range from 1 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., you're sure to find a bus trip that fits in your travel schedule. You have three bus company choices: Greyhound, BoltBus, and Peter Pan/Greyhound.

Where are the New York bus stations?

The busiest and most popular New York bus stops are 7th Avenue and 37th Street Times Square Bus Stop, Times Square Penn Station, and 8th Avenue and 40th Street Port Authority Bus Terminal.

How early should I get to the station?

Arrive at least 15 minutes before your bus is scheduled to depart, since that's when your bus will start boarding. If you need to buy snacks beforehand, half an hour or more will serve you well. Keep in mind that finding a cab in the city will be more difficult during rush hour. You can take the subway to travel to your bus stop as well, just remember that local subway trains take longer than express options, and that rush hour on the subway is extremely crowded. __ How much are tickets?

Can I expect any scenery?

The driver of the bus actually swore at me after a question is asked him. The rudest man I have ever met. To treat me as a customer like that was appalling.
