Amtrak from Philadelphia to Lancaster is $24/adult for the flexible schedule option. A $16 fare may be available, but only so many are offered per train trip. Amtrak has extended a discount for ICCM:
“Amtrak offers a 10% discount off the best available rail fare to (Lancaster, PA) between (June 07, 2016 – June 17, 2016). To book your reservation call Amtrak at 1 (800) 872-7245 or contact your local travel agent.”
If flying in to PHL, you would take the local train (SEPTA) to the Amtrak station. You pay for the SEPTA ticket ($8 in cash) on the train. Get off at 30th Street Station/Amtrak Station. You can purchase your Amtrak ticket at the Amtrak ticket window at 30th Street Station if you did not purchase it in advance.
Those arriving by train should contact us via a phone number we will send by email with their ETA in Lancaster. Once in Lancaster, ICCM Americas will do pick/up drop off at no cost.
We will start van pickups at PHL at about 11:00 am on June 10. We should have at least one van making a pickup every three hours, with the last planned pickup at 7:30. The exact van schedule will vary based on peoples’ expected arrivals.
On June 14, 15, and 16, the first vans will leave LBC at 12:45 pm and arrive at PHL at about 2:00 pm. We should have 3-4 vans available on June 14, but might only have 1-2 on June 15 and 16. We ask that not everyone arrange to fly out of PHL right at 4:00 pm on June 14, or some may be forced to take Amtrak just because we won’t be able to move everyone to the airport in one trip with the vans.
For more detail about vans, including notifying us about your needs for van pickup and the schedule, please contact ICCM Americas leadership.
