Cape Liberty to Philadelphia transportation

Recommended Posts

Our ship arrives Cape Liberty on a Saturday morning.  Two of us need to travel to Philadelphia the same morning.  Any ideas of the quickest, easiest way to get to Philly?  TIA

Look at a cab or Uber/Lyft to Newark Penn Station and Amtrak to Philadelphia.

Honestly from a convenience and even price standpoint you are better off just taking the UberX from Cape Liberty all the way to Philadelphia. If you did what the other poster suggested you would spend about $20 for the UberX from the port to Newark Penn Station and then another at least $44 per person (if you prebook the Pennsylvanian train, which is the least expensive or possibly more like $60 per person for a normal Northeast Regional) on Amtrak. Total cost is a minimum of $108 but most likely a bit more depending on train. Total travel time will be at least 2+ hours when you consider the time waiting for the train and getting to your final destination on the backend. 

 

If you take an UberX from Cape Liberty directly to Philadelphia its estimated at $116 including all tolls. Total travel time is about an hour and 40 minutes. There wont be any traffic on a Saturday morning. We often do this (we live in Center City Philly) and its a lot less hassle and it doesn't cost hardly anything more.

Depending on the time of year, you can hit shore traffic on a Saturday morning.

Thank you for your responses.  We were also considering renting a car but that could be a hassle.  Uber may be our best option. Thanks again
