Taking a train back from President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration? You might be riding with Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden tweeted Tuesday that he'll be hopping aboard an Amtrak train next Friday, just like he and wife Jill Biden "have for 44 years."
Jan 20, Jill and I will head home to Delaware the same way I have for 44 years: by train. Serving this country has been our greatest honor. pic.twitter.com/D0g2rEvE9R— Vice President Biden (@VP) January 10, 2017
Biden, a Scranton native and Delaware senator for 36 years, has ridden the rails between Washington, D.C. and Wilmington regularly throughout the years, earning him the nickname "Amtrak Joe."
The Wilmington stop has even been named after him – it's called the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Station, appropriately.
The vice president will stay in the area after his term in office is up. After much speculation, Biden accidentally confirmed his plans to head to the University of Pennsylvania to work in foreign policy.
Biden watched his granddaughter, Naomi Biden, graduate from the Ivy League school in May.
