DC to Pittsburgh by bus on Thanksgiving weekend? Will it be a traffic nightmare?
posted by backwards compatible to Travel & Transportation around Pittsburgh, PA (2 answers total)
I am new to DC, and am planning to visit relatives in Pittsburgh over the Thanksgiving holiday. I have already purchased my tickets - traveling Wednesday and returning Sunday, along with half of the Eastern seaboard, I imagine. A co-worker advised me to find an alternate time to travel, if I possibly could, since the Turnpike is likely to be an unholy mess.
I would like a second opinion, before I potentially alter my plans and spend more money. How much of a delay am I looking at? I was expecting to be delayed maybe an hour to two hours. Should I expect more? Should I change my travel time?
