6 Reasons to Take Our Bus From the Merrimack Valley to NYC

Jul 12, 2018

New York City in the summertime is brimming with excitement. Whether you’re looking for Broadway shows, museums, food festivals, or shopping, there are dozens of options seemingly at every turn. Getting there via car or by plane can be a hassle, but traveling to New York City this summer from the Merrimack Valley is easy when you ride the C&J bus. With our comfortable, spacious buses you can make a brief work trip or a week-long family adventure a reality.

C&J is proud to offer reliable trips from Tewksbury, Massachusetts in the heart of the Merrimack Valley to NYC every single day. Here are our six favorite reasons to ride a C&J coach into the city this summer, and all year long.


We make your NYC trip easy from the start. Our Tewksbury bus stop is located right off Interstate 495, making it very accessible from Lowell, Methuen, and the larger Merrimack Valley. Enjoy complimentary parking for up to 21 days. There’s no need to fight traffic to take a bus out of Boston or take your car all the way into NYC when you can let C&J do the driving for you!

Drop-off in Manhattan

Rather than drop off passengers on the edge of the city to brave the subway or Uber ride into town, C&J goes the extra mile (or ten) and brings passengers directly to Midtown Manhattan via the Port Authority Bus Terminal! You won’t have to worry about navigating the subway or taking a pricy taxi from the outskirts of the city.

Comfortable Ride

At C&J, we know that nothing makes a long drive seem even longer than uncomfortable seating. Our climate-controlled coaches feature ample legroom and supportive seats to ensure a pleasant experience you’ll find exceeds your expectations. You can relax before wandering NYC, and then kick your feet up again on the way home.

Wi-Fi and Entertainment

To make your trip even better, every one of C&J’s coaches has been equipped with Wi-Fi and access to a library of instant movies to watch on your phone or tablet. Pass the time by watching a recent blockbuster movie (or two).

If you’d rather make the ride more productive, you can get emails and other work done using our complimentary onboard Wi-Fi. Also, don’t forget to charge your phone we have power outlets available at every seat!

Amenities Available

We know the nearly four-hour trip to NYC is a long time, and hunger becomes a factor. In order to maximize comfort and quiet that grumbling in your stomach, our coaches offer a complimentary refreshment galley filled with a variety of healthy snacks (including gluten-free options), various soft drinks, bottled water, and a keurig machine with coffee and tea on board for all passengers so you have fuel to explore the city.
