Philadelphia's 30th Street Station is the major railway station serving the city. Numerous Amtrak long-distance and SEPTA regional commuter trains stop at this busy downtown terminal.
The Pennsylvania Railroad built 30th Street Station and opened it in 1933 as part of its reengineeing of the route between Washington, DC, and New York City. The large building is a combination of Classical Revival and Art Deco architectural elements and the Upper Level canopies even reflect Art Nouveau influence. The spacious Main Concourse is 135 ft. by 290 ft. (41 x 88m). Public spaces are on three levels. The Main Concourse houses the waiting room, Amtrak information, ticketing, and a food court. The Upper Level train platforms serve SEPTA Regional Rail suburban trains. The Lower Level train platforms serve Amtrak and New Jersey Transit trains.
Amtrak provides frequent service to Washington, New York, and Boston via its Acela Express and Northeast Corridor trains. Other Amtrak trains provide service to Chicago, Florida, and New Orleans.
New Jersey Transit has rail service from 30th Street to Atlantic City.
SEPTA Regional Rail offers commuter rail service to the Philadelphia suburbs and to Philadelphia International Airport. Note: Present an Amtrak ticket for free SEPTA connecting service to its downtown Suburban and Market East stations.
