    You're less than an hour's train ride away from Center City Philadelphia. In the meantime, check out all of the things to do, places to stay and spots to eat in Philadelphia. Read more

    The first and last cars on NJT commuter trains are quiet cars. That means take your loud phone calls and conversations to any other cars except those two.

    Protip: Drink up; the consumption of alcoholic beverages is permitted on all NJ Transit trains! Open container? Not a problem!

    Definitely grab an iced coffee sit near the Dunkin Donuts in the waiting area. Some sketchy lurkers tend to hang towards the entrances and its a bit humid indoors.

    Come here a lot? In the machines for NJT, swipe the credit/debit card you normally use. Your recent trips will appear saving time for you to catch that train!!!!

    You BETTER spend money and stamp that $1.50 Riverline ticket or the Sky Blue Shirts will get you, NO EXCEPTIONS! Those fare enforcement officers get excited when they catch people without tickets.

    Walk across the street and check out the weird scale houses (with Buddha inside) and sculptures in front of that one building. Also, walk around in the graveyard. It's really pretty.

    The Wallenberg exit is where the main passenger pick up area is. Walnut is a bit sketch but that's where cabs are.

    Completely redone station! Easy to navigate...$15.50 gets you a one way ticket to NYC and if you grab an express train...the trip is only an hour! 1& 1/2 on a local isn't bad either...cya later Philly

    If you have an active SEPTA transit pass (weekly or monthly), the regional SEPTA ride from Trenton to Philly is free on weekends!

    If you are looking for food - go to the east end and try the deli there - sandwiches are huge

    Words of advise, don't sit by the seating area by the McDonald's. Your in for an experience. Consider your self warned.

    The pizza grill is a viable option if you have time transferring and you're hungry

    If you're ever in a rush for NJT, there are sales kiosks on the tracks too - most people wait in line at the front entrances.

    On a cold day, hang out in the vestibule near the exit for the RiverLine. Super toasty--just don't block people who are entering/exiting!

    Easy connection between NJ Transit and SEPTA trains. If you want the River Line you need to go outside and cross the road.

    Try and use the bathrooms on the end where the pizza place is.....there's usually no one there.

    Unreliable service between NJ Transit and Septa since Amtrak trains take priority, particularly on Sundays. If you miss your transfer, it's an hour wait for the next train.

    Creepers about after 8pm, beware eye contact. Nice police presence though so don't worry.

    Dollar bag of popcorn? Can't beat it. Forget McDs and Dunkin! Best snack in the building.

    If u are coming from 1N and want to park make a right at the light and left at the next light. Don't go strait in the direction of the drop off point.

    With Amtrak's reliable delays, there's always time to enjoy the new offerings at the Trenton Transit Center. Best bet: Pizza Grille. Good slices and decent sandwiches.

    If you really prefer a better bathroom and are willing to buy something, the new McDonalds bathroom is way cleaner.

    The pizza place here is surprisingly good! Grab a slice if your connection doesn't line up exactly.

    Bathrooms by the pizza place are clean. Also, metal toilets? Unusual.

    Ringing in 2014 in Times Square? SEPTA trains will depart from Trenton (passengers can take early-morning NJT trains from New York to Trenton) at 3:30am, 5am & 6am.

    Problem taking NJTransit to Trenton: you ALWAYS wait 5-10 minutes until Amtrak leaves until you pull up. You ALWAYS miss the Riverline connection, making you wait 15-30 minutes for the next train.

    New cell phone charging stations have been installed throughout the station. No more having to sit on the floor. But keep an eye on it or someone might run off with it.

    Hate that some trains don't park on an adjacent track to a connecting train. Missed so many connections. Thank you septa and nj transit.

    Stranded for nearly 2 hours on a desolate stretch of track a mile from Trenton. The train has entirely lost power. It grows dark. Children begin to clamor for water. How long... before zombies attack?

    Looks like NJTRANSIT found another way to SCREW its customers with its "Modified Sunday Schedule" on the Riverline on weekdays "until further notice." This its a joke, making the trips home longer.

    Avoid the pizza place. Last time I was here there were flying ants on the pizzas. The bathrooms aren't bad and are safe to use - especially if you are in a hurry

    Heading to Philadelphia? Eschew SEPTA Regional Rail for NJT Riverline to Camden and take PATCO into town for less than $3! (~1.5 hour travel time)

    I guess a 'Modified Schedule' for the Riverline means the train can leave and arrives whenever the hell it feels like it, smh!
