Default Is there a direct train from 30th st station to Newark Airport?

Hello,
Im flying out of Newark airport in 2 weeks time and Im a little confused as how to get there. Is there a NJ transit train from 30th st station in Philly that goes to Newark airport? Or do I need to change somewhere along the way? Different websites were saying different things and I will be rushing from work to the airport so cant afford to do something stupid like get the wrong train end up stranded in the middle of New jersey!
Thanks for any clarification!

You actually have two options: 1) You can take SEPTA's R7 train from 30th Street to Trenton, at which point you would change to NJ Transit's Northeastern Corridor train which has a stop at Newark Airport. The R7 trains usually line up so that they stop behind the NJ Transit train which leaves soon afterward. You can buy a combo ticket for the whole trip at the NJ Transit vending machine at 30th Street. Check out SEPTA | Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and njtransit.com for schedule info.

Or 2) You can take Amtrak from 30th Street to Newark Airport with no change of trains. You'll save about an half hour of time with no PA stops after 30th Street. However, you'll probably pay at least double the SEPTA/NJ Transit combo... and you'll be stopping at most of the same NJ stops.

Good luck!
