Northeast Corridor & long distance services
Keystone Service – unreserved, state-funded service between Philadelphia and the state capital, Harrisburg, with various intermediate stops. With low fares and no advance reservations required, Keystone trains are favorites for low-cost “Points Runs” for Philly AGR members (like me).
Rail: Commuter rail service between center city and various suburban Pennsylvania destinations, along with service to northern Delaware and Trenton and West Trenton in New Jersey
Transit: Subway, elevated, trolley and bus service in the city and suburban counties in Pennsylvania (a couple of bus lines terminate in NJ and DE).
Atlantic City Line: commuter rail service between 30th Street Station and Atlantic City with several local NJ stops.
NEC: Service from Philadelphia to Newark and New York using SEPTA to Trenton connecting there to NJ Transit NEC trains. This connection, which is much cheaper than Amtrak but takes over an hour longer, is lovingly called the "Trenton Shuffle."
River LINE: Diesel-powered, light rail line between Camden NJ and Trenton with stops at towns along the Delaware River.
Bus: Bus service from center city Philadelphia to suburban New Jersey locations and the southern New Jersey shore towns.
PATCO (Lindenwold High Speed Line):
A subsidiary of the Delaware River Port Authority, PATCO operates a heavy rail transit line between center city Philadelphia and suburban New Jersey communities. Connection may be made between PATCO and the NJ Transit River LINE at Broadway (Camden) and the NJ Transit Atlantic City Line at Lindenwold.
