From NYC you probably have Greyhound as a bus option too. Also Amtrak Pennsylvanian daily train from NY Penn to Pittsburgh.

I thought I read that The Pennsylvanian serves towns that don't have Greyhound, not that I can find it today. If y'all go for AMTRAK, go for buying the tickets at least 14 days in advance for savings. The ride is much more comfortable & roomier than a bus. And y'all will get to see the horseshoe curve & the funicular [which I still cannot pronounce even though I saw Grand Budapest Hotel] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horseshoe_Curve_(Pennsylvania)
