Bus or train from DC to NYC?

I took my parents to NYC in 1996 until 1998. They are from Peru, so they came to the USA whenever they could.

Afterwards, my husband and I took our son to visit his grandmother, until she passed away. My son was only 4 years old.

Bottom line, my son is now 19, but never got to visit any NYC landmark, just briefly Central Park because Hurricane Irene was on its way. Then, we took Bolt Bus.

This time I want to go with my parents and my son. Would travelling by bus be comfortable for an 83 year-old couple?

Despite the question being for aged parents, your best bet is to ask on the DC destination specific forum (but a shorter question might elicit replies - lots of story in there that may confuse the main purpose).

I would definitely take the train between those two cities.
