I want to book a round trip to New York City and back to Pittsburgh. When I went to the website there was an option of leaving from Union Station and another from the bus station. Does Amtrak operate buses to NYC? Are there different classes on the train?

Customer: Does Amtrak offer bus service from Pittsburgh to New York?

Dmytro Sywyi: What is the difference between first class and business class on Amtrak?
The Acela train has two classes: first and business. First-class passengers have the option of preselecting their seats, which are arranged in a 2-1 configuration. Business-class riders do not have that luxury; it’s first-come, first-served.

Customer: is there also bus service?

Dmytro Sywyi: Amtrak does not have a bus to NY
Dmytro Sywyi: The bus journey time between Pittsburgh and New York is around 7h 10m and covers a distance of around 606 km. Services are operated by Greyhound USA, Megabus and OurBus. Typically 35 buses run weekly, although weekend and holiday schedules can vary so check in advance.
