Hi Dan,

I take NJ transit many times a week.  It is much cheaper than Amtrak and 
more frequent, the Trenton line runs on the same rails as the Amtrak NE 
Corridor for much of the trip:

I guess)

I would recommend taking an express NJ Transit from Trenton, Driving on 
the NJ Turnpike is exhausting on a good day and often a total 
nightmare.  Plus if you are coming in the evenings you will be going 
against the commute like me so you always get a good seat...

Good Luck,
