Visiting New York City or Washington, D.C.? You needn’t choose between Amtrak’s high fares and traffic, tolls and Manhattan parking! Inexpensive buses leave Philadelphia for Manhattan for a trip of about two hours. Get discounted tickets online at www.megabus.com or www.boltbus.com.
Or take SEPTA & NJT trains to New York City. SEPTA’s hourly R7 Trenton local connects with NJT’s Northeast Corridor trains at Trenton. Fares vary by time of day and type of fare, but are much lower than Amtrak’s. NYC station (“Penn Station”) is at 33rd St. & 7th–8th Avenues, a trip of about 2 hours, 40 minutes.
