Here at TPG, we have the incredibly difficult task of trying out a wide variety of transportation methods, so you can decide the best way for you to travel the world. Now, we want to know what two destinations you, our TPG readers, would like us to race next. If you haven't already read about our prior races, we'll help you understand what we're talking about.

In early May, we picked one of the most heavily trafficked routes in the Northeast Corridor, and raced from Central Park in New York City to the White House in Washington, DC. Five TPG staffers made the trek, each with a different method of transportation: Amtrak Acela, Amtrak regional train, the American Airlines shuttle from La Guardia to Reagan National, a Delta shuttle flight on the same route and even a Megabus. (Spoiler: the Megabus did not win.) Each mode had its pros and cons, and after you read the story, we hope it's easier for you to decide which method of transit is best for you.

It wouldn't be a New York summer without a weekend in the Hamptons, so once again, we sent five TPG staffers on a race, from Manhattan’s Union Square to a house in East Hampton. We drove a Turo car-share, hopped on the Long Island Rail Road’s express Cannonball train, flew on BLADE's nonstop helicopter service and rode the iconic Hampton Jitney and Hampton Luxury Liner buses. Once again, each mode varied in price, time and amenities.

TPG readers have been asking which routes we're doing next. We'd like to flip that question around to you. We want to hear from you, our readers, about this.
