I'll be in New York for a week later this month and I'm planning one day (Sunday) roundtrip to Hartford and see I could use either Amtrak or Greyhound. It looks like with Amtrak you go to New Haven and then take a shuttle to Hartford. Since the shuttle is part of the Amtrak reservation I assume that the shuttle is at the train station and runs on a regular schedule.
Greyhound (or another line I've forgotten the name) goes directly to Hartford. The cost is about the same. I need to be there by 2:30 and either can get me there with 2-3 hours to spare.
I think I would rather do the train but wasn't certain about the shuttle part of the trip. Which would you guys recommend?
