Baltimore Living

Best Car-Free Weekend Getaway

Bolt Bus

(877) 265-8287,

We can dream of better, cheaper, faster ways to get to New York. Amtrak could cut its fares by 75 percent and put an end to those inexplicable delays 20 minutes outside of Manhattan. Baltimore City could subsidize free high-speed helicopter flights from the Belvedere Hotel to the 34th Street Macy's. New Jersey could eliminate speed limits on the turnpike. But until then, the Bolt Bus is about as good as a bus line can be without installing hot tubs and a bar. Wi-Fi, electrical outlets, good-humored drivers, clean bathrooms, and even a charming Twitter account are its hallmarks, and while we wish the buses wouldn't stop at rest areas on the way up to New York, we can't see any bus line doing much better in the near future.
