While the beach holds allure for Northeasterners craving sun and water, actually getting there can put a damper on weekend plans - until now. DC2NY, the upscale bus company, has launched a new bus service from New York City to Delaware beaches.

New Yorkers (or those visiting who want to take an overnighter to the ocean) can hop on at Penn Station (33rd and 7th Ave) for stops in Wilmington, Rehoboth and Dewey Beach. The cost is $45 each way, which includes water, wi-fi and the all-important electrical outlet.

"We are thrilled to be able to launch our ’The Beach Bus’ weekend service from New York City to Rehoboth and Dewey Beaches and keep it rolling through Labor Day," says Richard Green, DC2NY’s CEO. "This is the only way for New Yorkers to get to enjoy Delaware’s lovely coastal communities without driving a car themselves. It’s a great value for those who want to explore these two beautiful Delmarva Peninsula towns and beaches."

This is DC2NY’s first New York service to and from Delaware, however DC2NY has been serving the Washington, DC to New York City markets with upscale bus service for nearly six years as well as sending beach loving Washingtonians to Delaware’s beaches for the last three summers.

Passengers can leave New York City on a summer Friday at 4:30 p.m. or on Saturday and Sunday at 7:00 a.m., and head back beginning at 7:15 on Saturday and Sunday nights. There will be additional buses over Labor Day weekend. There will be one stop in each direction at Wilmington, DE. The cost to/from Wilmington to the beaches is $25 each way. The cost from NYC to/from the beaches is $45 each way.
