The Market East Regional Rail station is located near the Greyhound terminal. Any westbound train will take you to 30th Street. If you're catching Amtrak and have an e-ticket, you can use that for the fare on SEPTA. "Amtrak Tickets | Both Amtrak paper tickets and e-Tickets, purchased for the same date of travel and presented for inspection, will be accepted as a fare to ride on Regional Rail trains between 30th Street Station and Market East Station. Customers with e-Ticket confirmations should present their personal device (iPad, laptop computer, smart phone, etc.) to the SEPTA Conductor for visual confirmation of the Amtrak fare."

With a low, steady rumble the last train of the night rolled out of the station and lumbered down the track. Now the platform was deserted, except for a lone man who stood smoking a cigarette and staring off at the train as it vanished in the darkness. The night was pleasant and warm, with clear skies jeweled with millions of stars, I picked up my two pieces of luggage and walked into the depot, the type built of massive timbers in the 1930s and would withstand the raging western Kansas winds for ages to come. The last clickity-clacks of the Santa Fe El Captain were muted as the door closed behind. I walked to the ticket counter where an older man was working at a stack of papers and thought it odd that he was not working at a computer terminal, but instead using a wooden pencil with a blunt point as he totaled a column of numbers. He looked up as I approached and said; "It's a beautiful night to be riding the rails, we generally don't get any passengers on the last train of the night, but welcome and how may I help you?" """""'Ok here is my start.......if it is going in a direction you don't like then say so......we will be getting around to the lone man on the platform........a ghost if you prefer, or the imagination, but never the less a man whose life was stopped...............""""" I told him I was hungry and tired, and needing directions to the nearest Motel, maybe one that had a burger joint nearby. "Well I can see this is your first time to the area, the town isn't here you see, but fifteen miles to the south, back in the late 30s a California land man sold the land to the town, but the cost and the taxes caused the folks to up and move everything and let the man have his land back, but the railroad was here to stay, so here we sit out in the country. Too far to walk I know, and I don't get off work until 8:00 this morning, we have a taxi, but he stops running at 11:00 PM." I asked about the gentleman standing on the platform, if by chance he may be headed to town before long and if he knew him. ??????????????????????????? "So he's out there tonight, huh? And you seen him, not to many people see him, and not to many people believe me when I tell them that I have seen him. Something special about you maybe for seeing him. Old Gus, he's been showing up now for the last 70 years, that is if you believe all the clerks who had my job before me. Yeah I know he doesn't look old, but that's part of the story, I guess we stop aging once we die. And no I don't see you getting a ride to town from Old Gus."

Hey I'm Charly :) Recently read a fascinating book, 'Stone Cold', perhaps he was homeless and was waiting on the station at night for shelter? He could have been watching a loved one leave on a train. Or, he could have been a stalker, stalking somebody leaving on the final train, or waiting for them to come the next day. Ooh, he could be waiting to to meet a worker at the train station at night for private talks, an affair, to plan a murder, to sell drugs... Good luck, love Charly♥

You should be using Martz Trailways from Wilkes Barre to Philadelphia Bus Terminal (10th and Filbert Street, which is one block north of Market St and 20 blocks east of your ultimate destination. Standard fare for the bus portion is currently about 37.00 one way, or 70.25 for a round trip. There are currently two daily departures from Wilkes Barre to Philadelphia, taking either 2.5 hrs or 2 hrs 50 min per the schedule (link below). The departures from Wilkes Barre are at 7:30 AM and 1:25 PM. On Fridays and Sundays only, there is a special express bus at 4:30 PM which is scheduled to arrive in Philadelphia at 6:50 PM. There are two public transportation options for getting between 10th and Filbert and 30th Street. The regional rail trains are across the street from the Greyhound terminal underground. You would go to tracks 3 and 4, and take any westbound train for two stops to 30th Street station. These trains come rather frequently, usually within 10 minutes or less, and are scheduled to take 9 minutes to reach your destination. The fare is $4 one way, cash on board, but you can also display any current amtrak ticket to receive free passage on these regional rail trains. The train arrives at the upper platforms of 30th street, then you may proceed down a ramp into Amtrak's 30th Street station concourse. When you arrived at 10th and Filbert, you also have a faster cheaper option rather than the $4 fare, (should you be subject to that). You may also proceed one block to the south to the street corner of 11th and Market and pick up the underground blue line, "Market Frankford" westbound (trains toward 69th Street). The cash fare is $2.00. The train comes very frequently and takes only a few minutes. You could also buy a minimum of two tokens for $3.10 at the machine, if you make this trip more than one time or have no change, but they also accept $2 cash, exact change only, at the turnstiles and the window at the entrance. Upon boarding any westbound train, whether A or B or local, at 11th street, you then get off at the third stop. The stops are 13th, 15th, and then express all the way to 30th, all underground stations. Go up the stairs and you will probably be on the southwest side of the intersection, 30th and Market streets, directly across the street from the Amtrak terminal.

regrettably, there is not any public transportation attainable to the terminal. you will could take a taxi to JFK Blvd, the place you could capture the #10 (run via pink & Tan) or #119 (run via NJ Transit) to the Port Authority Bus Terminal. i've got faith the fare is $4 in case you capture the #10 or $5.50 in case you capture the #119. in case you could not get the bus for in spite of reason, take the taxi to Grove highway and then take the trail ($2 fare) to thirty third highway. From there, you could capture yet another taxi for the acceptable few blocks to the Port Authority Bus Terminal. i'm hoping this guidance became very helpful.

I take NJT every work day and have always felt safe. The Newark train station can be a little sketchy at night, but keep an eye out and on your first day, learn where the taxi pick up/drop off is and see if you can find a local taxi company, then put the number in your cell phone, just in case. The Elizabeth station (there are TWO on the Northeast Corridor line) is pretty safe, albeit I don't know very much about the taxi situation. As for being on the train itself, the conductors rope off the end of the train sometimes, because if it's late and not a lot of people on the train, they try to confine us to only a few cars to avoid having someone sit in a car by themselves and have something happen to them. I've gotten kicked out of the back of the train because the conductors want to be able to watch us, which, at its core, is a good thing. Whenever I travel late in the evening (I'm in my 30s), I make a point of sitting near the end doors and not listening to music, so I can hear what's going on around me. Odd as it sounds, I sit near the bathrooms. There's always going to be traffic going back and forth to the bathroom, so I'm never alone. (Even conductors have to use the bathroom!) I also say thank you to the conductor who checks my pass and smile at the conductors as they come through. They're more apt to remember the face that is kind to them, and would better notice if something was wrong (for example, if I was missing, the bathroom was empty, and we hadn't reached my stop yet—they'd remember the stop since they took my ticket, the girl who bothered to say thank you). It probably doesn't help and the conductors could care less, but it doesn't hurt! And annoying as it may be, sit near the rowdy people. They are loud and annoying, and you don't have to sit WITH them, but rowdy people mean people who are awake, and the more people in the car who are awake, the less chances of someone trying something (too many witnesses).
