    Default Philadelphia advice?

    Does anyone know if there are any buses or trains that will take you from Philadelphia to NYC for a day trip? It doesn't have to be a paid could just be to drop me off and then take me back that night....

    I found a company called apex bus...but it drops you off in chinatown only. I don't really know anything about the layout of NYC. I just want to go for the day while I am in PA.

    Any tips on a day trip to NYC and the best things to do while I'm there? Food to eat? And the best way to get there and back? Thanks so much! =)

    Default One Place Where Amtrak Works

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The Northeast Corridor is one of the few places where America's passenger train system (AMTRAK) actually works. Trains run between Philadelphia and New York roughly every half hour to hour throughout the day with both standard and high speed (Acela) service. The trains run from downtown (30th St. Station in Philadelphia) to downtown (Penn Station in New York), and round trips start at around $90 for the standard trains which take about an hour and a half to make the run. High speed service (about an hour each way) is considerably more.

    Greyhound offers bus service between the two cities, also downtown to downtown on a frequent schedule for around $40, but will of course take about 2and a half hours each way.
