Day Trip To Longwood Gardens

A friend and I are planning a day trip to Longwood Gardens, we live about 1 1/2 away, and were thinking about taking the train to the area but we seem to be running into the issue of how to get from the train station to the gardens. We have searched and searched for a bus or some sort of public transportation that would take us the 10 miles from the station to the gardens and we are coming up empty handed. I just can't imagine that there is nothing to take travelers from the station to other destinations. Can anyone please shed some light on a way to get from the station to the gardens, if there is any?

Never considered getting there other than by car. I would suggest calling LG to see if they can help.

Alternatively, your only option may be a cab but you will need to make sure you can find a reliable company to pick you up when you want.

The Longwood Gardens website, under 'Directions and Parking' lists a 'public transportation" option. Apparently there is a shuttle which you can reserve(for a fee) with 24 hours notice from the Wilmington Delaware train station.

Frankly, this strikes me as an inconvenient and roundabout way to get from York to Longwood, but feel free to investigate it further.
