Amtrak, the largest passenger railroad service in the US, operates the train from Philadelphia to Stamford. The good news is that all connections between Philadelphia and Stamford 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 service like the Northeast Regional. 

  1. The Acela Express is a high-speed train between Washington and Boston. It is the fastest train in the Northeast Corridor, reaching 150 miles per hour. Acela tickets are pricier due to their great speeds and comfort. Extra legroom, free Wi-Fi, and a power outlet under each seat are some perks you can expect on Amtrak Acela Express.
  2. Northeast Regional is the most popular train due to its price and frequency. It serves 50 cities between Virginia Beach and Boston, making it a convenient option for passengers who need to make connections. Coach offers all you need for your hour ride: Wi-Fi, power outlets, extra storage space, and a Café Car with a wide offer of food and beverages. Business class guarantees more legroom and a more flexible cancellation policy.

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 travel free on the Amtrak train from Philadelphia to Stamford.

In Philadelphia, you can board the train at these 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.

The Stamford train station is located near the heart of downtown Stamford and provides access to Metro North, Amtrak, and Shore Line East rail services. It lets travelers easily reach New York City, Boston, and other places along the Northeast Corridor. Inside the station, you will find ATMs, vending machines, toilets, and the ticket office, both of which are wheelchair accessible. There is also an elevator to the platforms. Same-day and overnight parking is available and wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately, the Stamford train station does not have Wi-Fi or checked baggage service.

Stamford is Connecticut's second most populous city, primarily in symbiosis with New York City. Only 38 miles from Manhattan, it is home to many commuters who enjoy the benefits of working in the city and living in more quiet Connecticut. But the picturesque town has a lot to offer to visitors. The Stamford Museum and Nature Center has a collection of works by the Mount Rushmore sculptor Gutzon Borgium who used to live there. Or if nature is more your thing, we recommend visiting the 91-acre Bartlett Arboretum and Gardens, which preserves over 850 specimen trees and plants from all over the world.
