“Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station is the third-busiest Amtrak station in the U.S., trailing only New York City’s Penn Station and Washington, D.C.’s Union Station,” Technically Philly reports. More than 4 million Amtrak passengers passed through 30th Street Station last year — a number that doesn’t include additional use from SEPTA riders.

See Technically Philly’s report for a map of all Amtrak destinations and their relative busy-ness.
