Video: What’s the best way to get from NYC to DC — plane or train?

13 April 2023

Another day, another race. Ever wonder which is the best way to get from New York City to Washington, D.C.?

TPG’s Madison Blancaflor and Marc Ramos race from the Empire State Building in New York City to the White House in the U.S. capital to help answer that question. The catch: It’s rush hour on a Wednesday morning.

Marc hops on a flight with American Airlines from LaGuardia Airport (LGA) to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), while Madison opts for a trip on Amtrak’s high-speed Acela train from Moynihan Train Hall to Washington’s Union Station.

Between security lines, passenger lounges, taxis and more, Marc and Madison highlight the advantages and setbacks of each mode of transportation for frequent commuters. Check out the full video below!
