You take NJT's Northeast Corridor service to Trenton and transfer to SEPTA. There are no baggage cars. You bring your bike in the passnger car with you. On NJT you are supposed to board the weheelchair accessible car. Don't know about SEPTA. There are certain blackout times for bikes during weekdays on both NJT and SEPTA. It depends on the time and direction. For example, during the week, you may not bring you bike on an NJT train the terminates at Penn Station or
Hoboken prior to 10 a.m.

Both agencies' bike policies can be found with simple Google searches like "NJT bike policy."

You can also take NJT to Trenton and then take NJT's River Line light rail to Camden and then PATCO to Philadelphia. PATCO allows bikes 24/7. I believe the River Line does as well.
