need info on public trans between Newark Airport and Philly Airport

I am a flight attendant and will be commuting to PHL from EWR. Does anyone know how to do that with public transportation? I will be leaving from Hoboken actually.

You'll have to make one choice first, what's more important speed or cost. If speed is your priority, then take AMTRAK. You can catch one of the Northeast Corridor trains at either Penn Station in NY or in Newark. (Either way, the PATH train from will get you in either direction.) It'll take less time to get to Newark, but you may not get a seat. From Penn Station, you can get a seat.

Once on the train, take it to Philadelphia 30th Street Station and connect to the R1 SEPTA airport line.

If cost is more important than speed, instead of AMTRAK, take the NJ Transit train to Trenton, and switch to the SEPTA train. Take that SEPTA train to 30th Street station and switch to the R1 line.

Another option instead of the train would be to take an airport shuttle from EWR to PHL. There is Dave's Beast limousine and Philly Shuttle.

Dave's: (215) 288-1000

Philly Shuttle: (215) 333-1441
