COMMUTE: Sat Mar 18, 2006; #195 (on time)

My commute for Saturday March 18, 2006.

Morning - I took Amtrak Train #195 (PHL-NYC):
  • PHL 11:45 AM,
  • TRE Noon,
  • NWK 12:37,
  • NYC 1:08,
Had empty seat next to me but train was pretty full. Used 10 trip ticket. Been doing a huge amount of travelling, and I'm haven't been in the office much. Also been staying at the room in Jersey I'm renting by the week.


  • Great blog!!! Can you recommend good sites for commuting strategies? I am relocating to the Philly area and want to learn the best strategies from NJ, PA, and DE into center city.

  • Sadly there's few sites that cover commuting along the Northeast Corridor. There's this page on my blog:
    and links on the blog homepage. When I come across sites I'll put them up.

    I do like the NJ Transit site:
    You can sign up for alerts and you'll get alerted if there are NJ Transit delays. If there are NJ Transit delays, you can assume there are Septa and Amtrak delays as well.

    I'm happy to answer questions you may have directly. It's been tough for me to keep up with the blog but I feel I can offer good advice.

  • Hello, I am writing a feature article for the New York Post on people who live in Philadelphia, but who commute regularly to NYC. This is for the Home/Real Estate section. I really want to speak to regular folks who have been priced out of New York, and the pros and cons of living in Philly, commuting to NYC, etc. I would love to speak with you further, and find out more about your situation and experiences. Please email or give me a call!
