Same Money on Amtrak rides between NYC and Philadelphia

April 29, 2008

While playing around on, I noticed some peculiarities in the pricing of tickets from New York City. If your travel plans involve travel from NYC to Philadelphia, it might be worth looking into the price of tickets to cities west of Philadelphia to see if they are cheaper.  You’d just get off the train in Philly.  Some possibilities to try include Paoli ( PAO ), Lancaster ( LNC ), and Harrisburg ( HAR ).

Here are two screen shots that show an example of the pricing oddity.
