Thanksgiving Travelers Return Smoothly, Safely

Holiday travel down slightly in Philadelphia this year

CBS Philly reports that holiday travel was down slightly in Philadelphia this year, but seemed to go well.

 AAA was projecting a decrease of about 1.5% in holiday travelers this Thanksgiving weekend, and that projection seemed to be right on at 30th Street Station on Sunday night, where travelers were enjoying a pretty easy ride home.

Crowds gathered around the information board anxiously awaiting their train home, but for most people, things were moving along with no hiccups.


“There were no problems,” said one traveler. “Everything was on time. It was a little crowded coming back down, but going up it was not as crowded. But everything was great. Everything was on time.”

It's easier to stay home and not leave the house at all, though. Not that we recommend that for the holidays.
