AMTRAK has two lines that service the Lancaster area. Check online for the schedules and stops. The Lancaster station is not a full service station but it is serviced by the Red Rose Transit Bus Line. The RRT Route #14 transits Route #30 which runs right by the Lancaster Host on its way to Paradise and Kinzer. RRT Route #14 also services the Greyhound Bus Station in Lancaster.
Also check online with Amtrak to see if they have service in your area to Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Line comes out of Pittsburgh and has stops along the way as it winds around the famous horse shoe curve at Altoona on its way to Lancaster, Philadelphia and New York.
The Keystone Line comes out of New York to Philadelphia and on to Lancaster with stops along the way in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

A full service airport has rentals but no shuttle service to the Hotel which is 30 miles away.

For those who are not attending the group discussions and choose to do some sightseeing check the Red Rose Transit site for free rides as they are supported by the PA Lottery and seniors ride free.
