Hello first time poster and really trying to figure this out but not having much success. My wife and I are trying to figure out a way to pick up my mother and bring her back for Christmas. We have been looking at several different train options but have not found any options that work practically. I joined this forum in the hopes that maybe others could shed light on how I should approach this. So a few options I have considered are the following: Option 2: Taking Amtrak from Framingham, MA to Erie, PA - awesome! Practical problem is the drop off is like 1:50 AM. This is confusing as to how one can rent a car when all rental car places are closed at this time. This is actually the best option in my opinion if I could just get a rental car to get me to her house which is about an hour an half from the Erie stop. Option 2: Taking Amtrak from Boston (Back Bay Station) to Pittsburgh, PA gets us there around 7:59 PM - not bad. Hoping I can take an uber to the PGH airport to rent a car??? Probably the best option I see at this point. Does anyone have any other suggestions or ways I should approach this? Now the other issue again is going back to Boston, MA for my wife and I. Again: Option 1: Take Amtrak from Erie, PA to Framingham, MA = much faster and straight on (no transfers). Just not sure where to drop a rental car off since again departure is like 7:20 AM Option 2: From PGH to Boston works but again uncertain on drop off for rental car. I hope this all makes sense and truly grateful for any advice on what to do or how to approach this.
