Outgoing Vice President Joe Biden will resume a long-held personal ritual when he leaves Washington for his home state of Delaware after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20: taking the train.
“Jan 20, Jill and I will head home to Delaware the same way I have for 44 years: by train,” Biden tweeted Tuesday.

“Serving this country has been our greatest honor,” he added.
Biden, who served as a senator for 36 years prior to becoming President Obama’s vice president, earned the nickname “Amtrak Joe” for his daily commutes between Washington and his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
Last week Biden revealed that he will work on foreign policy issues at the University of Pennsylvania and would continue his cancer “moonshot” initiative through a new organization, the Biden Trust.
