PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) —  Now that Thanksgiving is over, thousands are leaving Philadelphia by train, bus, plane and car to get back to work and school on Monday.  

It may be one of the busiest travel days of the year, but it was still business as usual at 30th Street Station.

Travelers picked up steadily throughout the morning, and Gwen Cromwell was one of the hundreds waiting on their train. 

"We was hyped up about it because this is the first time we're using the train to get to New York," she said, adding that her experience so far has been great.

Maggie Horvath says her experience has been a little different.  

"Looked like three weeks ago for a ticket and it was all available, and I looked, like, two days later and it was through the roof expensive," she said. 

So, if you're still looking for a train ticket out of dodge, here's a travel tip: plan earlier next year because train tickets do sell out.
