Nope. Penn's compact urban campus is well served by an extensive network of Subway, Bus, Regional Rail, and Trolley lines that are located around the campus where public transit stops are never more than a five-minute walk from any part of campus. And while SEPTA can get you to pretty much anywhere you need to go - we do have our limits. And that's where partners like Penn Transit, Ride Indego, Amtrak, NJ Transit, DART, PATCO, Mega Bus, Bolt Bus and Philadelphia International Airport come in. And let's not forget Uber and Lyft. Rideshare options are a great way to travel to or from a Regional Rail Station when you're out in the 'burbs.
But some of the SEPTA info you should know right now is:
If you have a SEPTA Pass - including a University Pass - you are eligible to receive a slew of Perks!
Need to catch a flight? SEPTA's Airport Line service runs every 30 minutes, Monday through Sunday from 5a to 12m.
Up all night? So are the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines on weekends.
Got tickets to the game? Forget about traffic and parking, SEPTA's Broad Street Line is the way to go.
And have you heard about SEPTA Key - the new way to pay? It's contactless, reloadable, if lost - replaceable, and reusable. It's a game-changer.
The Travel Center @Penn is designed to better understand and utilize the array of transit resources available to members of the Penn Community as well as residents and visitors to University City.
