    Train from Philly

    by Lhenne1 Written Feb 27, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are in Newark and want to visit Philadelphia (or vice versa) SEPTA offers train service betweenthe two cities. The R2 line runs between 6am and 8pm on weekdays and slightly less on the weekends. The train is reliable and clean.

    Tickets cost $5.50 for peak hours and $4.25 for off-peak hours. You can also change trains at Philly's 30th Street Station to get to more places around the city and the airport. Just be careful to make sure you have the times right at night so you don't get stuck without a ride home.

    The SEPTA website has all the information for fares and timetables for this line and others.

    Newark, DE is simple to get to. It's centrally located between Washington, DC and New York City. If you are traveling on the East Coast, Newark is one of the few Delaware exits off Interstate 95 (I-95). From the North or South to Delaware Exit 1 and follow the signs for Route 896 North. Follow 896 North through the UD campus. Make a right on Delaware Avenue, it runs paralell to Main Street. Go several blocks, and make two lefts, this will put you on Main St., the heart of the town.
