Amtrak, the largest passenger railroad service in the US, operates the train from Philadelphia to New Haven. The good news is that most of the connections between Philadelphia and New Haven are direct. There are several options, but it comes down to whether you need to get there fast with the speed train Acela or take your time with a slightly slower but cheaper line like the Northeast Regional.

  1. The Acela Express is a high-speed train between Boston, MA., and Washington, DC. It is the fastest train in the Northeast Corridor, reaching 150 miles per hour, arriving at New Haven about three hours after leaving Philadelphia. Acela Express is pricier due to its speed and comfort. Extra legroom, free Wi-Fi, and a power outlet under each seat are some of the perks you can expect on Amtrak Acela Express.
  2. Northeast Regional is the most popular train due to its price and frequency. It runs around ten times a day. The Northeast Regional is slower, but it makes more stops along the way, making it a more convenient option for passengers who need to make connections. 

The ticket prices may vary depending on how early you book, so securing them at your earliest convenience is recommended. 

Children 2-12 travel at a lower fare on all Amtrak trains, but the Acela Express only offers discounts for children on weekends. But the good news is that children under two always travel free on Amtrak trains between New York and New Haven.

In Philadelphia, you can board at two stations:

  1. 30th Street Station, officially William H. Gray III, initially built in the 1930s, has since become a hub for transportation with access to Amtrak, SEPTA, and other forms of public transit. The beautiful station building is located in the University city, filled with restaurants and cafes, providing plenty of things to do and see. The famous Liberty bell is also easily reachable; if history is not your thing, you can always stroll down the Delaware river.
  2. Another option is the North Philadelphia station. It is located on Broad Street and close to tourist attractions such as the African American, Museum of Philadelphia and the Rodin Museum. However, the station also has a reputation for being unsafe. It may be better to exit on the 30th Street Station, which is constantly monitored and protected by the police and Amtrak security.

You need to know three essential things about Union station in New Haven. First, the station offers paid parking so you can leave your car overnight for a fee. Second, it is only 15 minutes by foot from Pepe's pizzeria, home of the infamous New Haven apizza, and third, it is only a 30-minute walk from the town's nucleus, Yale. Local commuter services operated by MTA and CTrail serve the station and the previously mentioned Amtrak lines. As for the buses, Intercity services like Greyhound and local buses and shuttles also stop there.

Did you know that New Haven was one of the first planned cities in the United States? Founded by the Puritans in the 17th century, the town was constantly a backdrop for the most critical events in American history. But it remains most famous for giving a home to one of the world's most prominent and oldest universities - Yale. This quaint university town is perfect for a day trip from Boston or New York. Take a walk on the university campus, or visit the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History if you are in the mood for culture.
