I am in Washington DC right now and want to go to Manhattan, NYC in the next few days. I searched for flights and the prices seemed very high to me for such a short time distance (compare to the West coast where we can go from SF to LAS or LA with around 25-50 bucks).
I decided to rent a car, as I am with my friend and we can share the price this way, but I don't know if there is an option to pick up the car at DC and drop it off in NYC/Manhattan? Which companies have such an option and are more affordable?
Also, I would like to know if there is another option like train, bus, shared cars, etc.
