If you're not old enough to ride Amtrak alone (which is generally 15 years of old), you are not old enough to ride the other forms of transportation. Matter of fact, without a parent's approval, you would be considered a runaway and would be picked up by the local police. If this is to visit a friend, your parent should be doing the arranging... Sorry, but that's the way it works...

Hmmn. The minimum age to travel alone on Amtrak is 13. You really REALLY need to talk to your parents about the trip you want to take, not try to sneak off by yourself.

There are no other trains that go all the way from Newark, NJ, to Washington, DC. Using NJ Transit and SEPTA (this will require 2 or 3 trains), you can get as far as Wilmington, DE. There is also a train from Baltimore, MD, to Washington, DC. I'm not sure how you would get between Wilmington and Baltimore, and I don't know if there are any trains there except Amtrak. Even if there are, this trip is going to take 3-5 trains total.

If you are 12 or under you must have an adult 18 or older to go with you. If you are 13 to 15 you may travel alone but there are special conditions. Check Amtrak's website; here is a link: You can go to Virginia on an Amtrak train but if you are 13 to 15 you must get off at a station that is staffed so you need to check the station. Amtrak trains stop at many stations in Virginia. Also if you can get to Washington DC the state of Virginia has commuter trains that stop at other Virginia locations. To go by train other than Amtrak take New Jersey Transit to Trenton, SEPTA to Philadelphia and change to a SEPTA train to Wilmington. There commuter rail service stops so you have to find a bus to Perryvile, MD or Baltimore. From there you can get a MARC train to Washington DC. As you see there are several changes which, since this is your first trip, can be daunting. BOLT bus runs from Newark to Washington DC. However, I don't know what there age restrictions are. You would have to call them on the telephone as their website does not list them.
