Information from Pennsylvania Department of Transportation:
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is partnering with Amtrak on "PA Trips By Train," an initiative designed to increase interest in the Keystone train service between Harrisburg and Philadelphia, and to promote an alternate travel option for visiting popular events and destinations.
As part of the excursions packages, customers can purchase discounted train tickets from Amtrak and receive a pass for transportation from the train station to the excursion destination.
The initiative begins this month with an overnight excursion to Christmas in Hershey, with Hershey providing ground transportation to and from the Elizabethtown train station. Planned future packages include trips to the Pennsylvania Farm Show, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, the Franklin Institute, Historic Philadelphia and the International Philadelphia Flower Show.
