There are now several bus options from Boston to New York, most leaving from Boston South Station but with different drop-off locations in NY. The trip by bus usually takes 4.5 to 6.5 hours depending primarily on traffic, but weather conditions which can also be a problem in January.  Bus service has become very popular in the last few years thanks to increased competition which has led to lower prices, better comfort, and free on-board Wi-Fi (which can be spotty) etc. Several of the OCS staff members have used some of these bus services.
