Ok, I am back. If you are going ou of NY and live on the east coast, this is the way to go. I talked to several people who had trouble getting to the port. Either cab drivers that got lost or very pricey car hires. There are different routes. My route started in DC and stopped in Baltimore and then went straight to the pier. Usually that same bus would stop in Philly and one or two stops in NJ, but our bus was filled. Another bus just made those stops. There also is a bus route that goes across PA. A great way to go!
