After the launch of luxury bus company Royal Sprinter, DC2NY is stepping up its service to offer riders a completely renovated, posh interior and seven new stops between the District and New York.

DC2NY co-founders Asi Ohana and Richard Green have renamed the brand BestBus to reflect what they call the region’s premier bus company. BestBus’ new silver-and-black fleet will hold 55 travelers in reclining seats with foot rests and offer power outlets, Wi-fi and flatscreen video players.

DC2NY was founded a year before competitor Megabus and 10 months before Bolt Bus, which both offer fare as low as $1 if travelers purchase tickets early enough in advance. DC2NY tickets have historically ranged from an average of $20 to $40, while other luxury bus companies like Vamoose Gold and Royal Sprinter charge upwards of $60 to $90 for the same route.

The newly renamed seven-year-old company will now serve the Foggy Bottom area as well as Manassas, Va., Silver Spring, Md., Baltimore, Md., New York and Delaware on a daily basis. BestBus will open stops in 10 cities by the end of May.
