Amtrak is the Fastest, Most Comfortable Way to Travel

My favorite way to travel is by train. Luckily Amtrak, which departs from New York City’s accessible transportation hub Penn Station, has stations in all sorts of cities I want to visit. There’s even a station near my hometown, which makes it easy to take a weekend trip to see my parents. There are a lot of reasons I prefer to take an Amtrak train home instead of a bus—it’s cleaner, the passengers are quieter, the seats are much more comfortable and the conductor announces each stop so you won’t have to worry about missing your station—but the most crucial is the lack of traffic. Most of my friends have stories about a frustrating bus ride. Personally, I’ve sat in bumper-to-bumper traffic on I-95 aboard a bus from Baltimore, MD to Manhattan for more than six hours (normally a three- or four-hour trip at most) and once I was even stranded at a rest stop in Cherry Hill, NJ when a bus I had been riding suddenly broke down. Amtrak, on the other hand, runs on rails so it always takes the least amount of time than any other form of ground transportation. Book your next trip at amtrak.com.
