New York: Buying bus tickets at Port Authority

Travel Forums North America New York: Buying bus tickets at Port Authority

Hi. I´m going to arrive NYC next july 4th and next day Ineed to take a bus at Port Authority of New York to go to Hyannis, MS.

I´m from Mexico and the bus line (Peter Pan) sells online tickets for this trip but they ship the tickets to a shiping address, my options are:

1) Give the hostal address (they haven´t replied to my inquiry, they are located at Harlem) so I can get my tickets there when I arrive, I don´t know if I can trust them for this.

2) Buy the tickets as soon I arrive to NY the 4th of july, I don´t know if I´m going to find tickets for the next day bus trip to Hyannis.

What would be your advise? do you see more options? (car rental too expensive, if I can get one).

Thank you...

Buy the tickets at Port Authority when you get there (to NY). The Port Authority is only 1 block from Times Square--so you'll be in the vicinity anyway--and I can't imagine there will be a whole lot of people trying to get from NY to Hyannis, Massachusetts on a Saturday in the middle of a holiday weekend--so there will be tickets available.

Enjoy
