Thanksgiving Trek: 30th Street Station


Inquirer staff writer Brittany Talarico reports from 30th Street Station at 7:35 a.m.:

Trains at the region’s busiest station are all running on time with no delays reported, Amtrak officials said.

The holiday rush got off to a late start yesterday and the number of travelers headed home for the holiday are down slightly compared with last.year.

“I expect today to be busier,” said Richard Gadbois, Amtrak’s assistant superintendent of stations.

Tickets for the majority of trains leaving 30th Street today are sold out, Gadbois said, adding that he did not foresee the need to add any additional trains.

Ticket sales were down slightly on Monday, Gadbois said.

“It’s hard to tell if ridership is down or tickets might have been purchased earlier,” he said.
