Website unveiled for Philly-Harrisburg rail commuters

Attention Philly to Harrisburg commuters: You can now skip the congested Amtrak Web site and go directly to the new Keystone Line site for train information.

The new site was launched this week by PennDot, which is hoping to encourage people to avoid the Schuylkill Expressway and Turnpike "traffic monsters" and hop on the train for the 90 minute ride.

The interactive site has train schedules, ticket information, station hours and information about "amenities."*

*We at Commonwealth Confidential are hoping this means Amtrak will add a cafe car to the train soon.
