Getting There

The Convention Center is a short walk from Jefferson Station (Regional Rail), 13th Street Station (Market-Frankford Line & Subway/Surface Trolleys) and City Hall (Broad Street Line). Multiple Bus Routes also serve the Pennsylvania Convention Center. 

Regional Rail: All trains stop at Jefferson Station, located next to the Convention Center at 12th & Arch Street.

Market-Frankford Line: Take train to 11th Street Station. (Customers may also choose to ride the Broad Street Line to City Hall Station and either transfer to the Market-Frankford Line or walk to the Convention Center)

Bus: Routes 17, 23, 33, 38, 44, 45 & 48, and Routes 4, 16, 124 & 125 are within walking distance. City Hall Station on the Broad Street Line is also nearby.

Before you head out, remember to check System Status for a complete view of the SEPTA system to see if service is running according to schedule or if there is any alteration in service. Also - download the Official SEPTA App for iPhone and Android (it's free!).

During the Flower Show, the One Day Independence Pass is valid on all SEPTA modes all day long. The One Day Independence Pass costs $13 per person. The $30 Family Independence Pass provides unlimited travel for one family of up to five people, traveling together on any one day (at least one person, but no more than two, must be 18 years of age or older). While additional fees apply on Regional Rail travel to and from Trenton and West Trenton, NJ, customers still save when purchasing Independence Passes over individual rail tickets.

Independence Passes can be purchased in advance — they are not activated until the date they are punched by a SEPTA operator, cashier or conductor. Independence Passes are sold at all SEPTA Regional Rail Ticket Offices, SEPTA Sales Offices, the Transit Gift Store at 1234 Market Street and online at www.Shop.SEPTA.org.

SEPTA ticket offices will be opened for extended hours beginning the week of February 25.

Please note, if you are heading home after the show from Jefferson or Suburban Station, you need to pre purchase your ticket in order to move through the turnstiles before proceeding to the train platform. Accepted fares include a SEPTA Key Card, SEPTA Key Senior Card/Current driver’s license with magnetic stripe (customers 65+ only), SEPTA Key Reduced Fare Card, March TrailPass, March TransPass (weekends only), SEPTA Regional Rail Ticket, and One Day Independence Pass.

 

Seniors

We no longer accept Medicare Cards.

We no longer accept the paper PA Senior Citizen Transit ID Card.

We still accept Valid Pennsylvania Driver's Licenses and Non-Driver IDs with a magnetic stripe on the back. But we do not accept the new licenses issued by PennDOT on or after July 2017 without magnetic stripes.

Seniors need a SEPTA Key Senior Photo ID card to receive free rides on Transit and Regional Rail. This is one positive change – if you have a SEPTA Key Senior Photo ID card, you no longer have to pay $1 on Regional Rail.
