Extensive Definition

Vamoose Bus Service is a daily bus service providing rides between New York City and the Washington, D.C. metro area. The bus picks up passengers in Arlington, VA (Rosslyn) and Bethesda, MD in the Washington area, and near Penn Station/Madison Square Garden in Midtown Manhattan in New York.
At $25 a trip, the service provides a discount over other forms of transportation between the regions, including Amtrak and Greyhound Lines. However, unlike the similar Chinatown bus lines, Vamoose does not travel to either city's Chinatown.

Legal proceedings

The buses previously served Tenleytown (near American University) and Downtown Washington, D.C., but the company moved the stops outside the District of Columbia, after an injunction was filed by Washington Deluxe, a competing bus line. As a result, Vamoose moved its service to Bethesda, MD and Arlington, VA (Rosslyn), as of August 2006.
