    2nd busiest train station in the Amtrak system. Cosi is the best food option in the station.

    Handy Amtrak/SEPTA hub in Philly. Discount bus lines operate from just outside 30th St station.

    Avoid Avis! Their employees don't even open or close on time! Twice now I've been screwed bc no one was there to help me pick up or drop off my car.

    Being the first person in line for your train doesn't matter since they let you down to the track before the trains show up

    At least you can appreciate the great architecture while you wait for your train.

    If you use the Amtrak app on your phone be sure to have a screenshot of the ticket as the app doesn't always function

    Tip: if you needs train seats together with your family or friends, get the Red Cap luggage to take you down early before the rest of the people board. Costs a few bucks but worth it.

    When en route to NYC, don't bother waiting in that long line for train. You always end up waiting on the platform for awhile. Wait until it's the actual time to board. Then go down!

    Ladies, avoid the restrooms next to Wendy's. It's gross 99.9% of the time.

    If you have some time to kill, head out to the Porch. It's a plaza just outside the station facing Market Street. Great views of the skyline, nice seating options, and free events. Food trucks too.

    If you have a layover and feel a little famished, explore beyond the Jersey Mikes, Cosi, and Saxby's, theres some good food back there.

    It looks like there is a cell charging 'station' at the end of the ticket windows. A bench and bunch of outlets.
