A round trip ticket on Greyhound is only about $70 - my mother-in-law has done it several times in the past few years. She's a senior citizen and travels alone, and says she feels perfectly safe. It might sound like a lot of money, but you'll easily spend $50 to $60 on gas anyway, depending on the fuel efficiency of your ride, plus about $15 in tolls on the turnpikes, which is the only logical way to make the trip. Why not slap on your headphones and chill for a few hours and let somebody else do the driving?
Of course, this math only works for a solo trip. If you have buddies willing to share the gas money it pays to drive yourself.
