The beach bus is back for a second season. DC2NY is now offering service from DC to Dewey Beach (and Rehoboth).
Currently, a round trip ticket costs $78 with one way tickets available for $39. Each bus offers electric outlets (good for finishing up work on the way or just watching a movie on your laptop, WIFI access, free movies and a free bottle of water to cool down.)
The beach bus picks up at Dupont Circle and Union station and drops off in Rehoboth beach and at Ruddertown in Dewey Beach. Average bus time is between two hours and 15 minutes and 3 hours. Since the bus can use the bus lane on Route 1, it can be faster than taking a car.
Right now, service is limited to weekends, with Monday buses added on holiday weekends. For more information, see DC2NY’s Beach Bus page at: http://www.dc2ny.com/pages/beaches.aspx or read the Washingtonian’s recent article.
