In response to the question, “How can I get to Boston or New York City with out driving?” below are options to consider
Train: Amtrak has trains that travel once a day from Bellows Falls ($63 one way or $93 for a flexible seat to NYC) and from Rutland ($79 for reserved seat one way to NYC) No direct service to Boston though you can take trains to Springfield, MA or New Haven, CT and transfer to another train.
Dartmouth Coach Price varies based on whether you are going from Hanover, Lebanon or New London. Round Trip day to Boson depending on departure point and whether your going to South Station or Logan is going to generally be less than flying one way. Same is true for trips to NYC. More parking options are available at New London and prices are cheaper, particularly if you book on-line.
Bus: Mega Bus has departure points from Brattleboro, Montpelier and Burlington. This bus does not go directly to Boston but will take you to NYC for $39 one way. By far the cheapest way to get to NYC.
