Best prices? Best times. More comfortable seats?

Best is subjective and vague

Options are Megabus, Greyhound, and Amtrak. They all have their advantages and disadvantages with respect to price, schedule, and comfort.

Train is much more comfortable, but takes a long time at the border crossing and is prone to delays along the route.

Buses are less comfortable, but quicker at the border and only delayed by traffic issues.

As a citizen of the UK, upon entering the US, you will be required to obtain an I-94W Visa Waiver, in addition to having your passport. To obtain the waiver, you will be photographed, fingerprinted, and pay a fee of $6 US.

cbp.gov/travel/…i-94-instructions

The I-94W visa waiver will be “electronically” attached to your passport.

The process of obtaining the I-94W waiver takes on average ½ an hour.
