best way from NYC to Morgantown?

Connellsville, PA has no station, just a small structure in which to wait for the train. It is about 40 miles to Morgantown.
The Pittsburgh Amtrak Station would be about 65 miles from Morgantown, but unfortunately, Greyhound has dropped service to Morgantown, but I don't know if another bus line has picked it up.

I visit relatives all the time there, and it is not an easy trip from nyc.
I have them pick me up in Greensburg or Pittsburgh for a trip to Morgantown (about an hour drive).
Someone here mentioned a bus service from Pittsburgh...have not tried that, but I figure it may be on a limited schedule.
You could fly into Pittsburgh, and then there is a small airline that goes direct to Morgantown.

I see that Megabus offers twice daily service from Pittsburgh to Morgantown. Unfortunately it would not be same day service from NYC to Pittsburgh on Amtrak then on Megabus. Megabus also offers twice daily service from Washington DC to Morgantown, but that is a long bus ride. Megabus, Greyhound, Boltbus in DC now operate out of the DC Union Station parking garage so transfers between the bus services and Amtrak in DC are easy. I'll leave it to the OP to check Greyhound or Trailways options as well as air travel. Morgantown WV is an example of a city that has limited transit travel options.
Mountain Line Transit Authority runs daily bus service between Morgantown and Pittsburgh (downtown & airport). Click here or call 304-296-3869. Unlike most Amtrak trains, the bus offers free wi-fi.
As for WiFi, between the east and west coast corridor trains, a majority of the Amtrak trains now offer free WiFi.
