Each leg of the trip was precisely on time... however we hit rain through Connecticut and that caused some delay. Overall, seamless trip for $22 from Newport, RI to Manhattan. Amtrak was charging over $170 one way from Providence and was only about 1 hour shorter overal...More

The trip was pretty cheap but because of the 3 transfer took way too long, would never do it again
Peter Pan need to know before hand where construction/road works are going and plan for alternate route, we took about an hour getting out of Stamford CT.
Please double ETA, I was not aware when I bought the ticket there would be 3 transfers, one transfer had over 2 hours wait
