Getting Around Philadelphia

Philadelphia is fairly condensed, making it easier to get around then you might expect. Walking throughout center city is “do-able”. Though, the easiest way to get around is by taxi. Plus, they’re everyway you want to be.

Philadelphia does have an extensive subway system, operated by the Southeast Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). The subway is a popular mode of transportation for locals. The SEPTA line connects center city with most nearby suburban destinations.

Buses and Trolley’s are popular among tourists. They provide a nice way for first time visitors to get acquainted with the city. Trolleys cost a bit more, however, a guide will point out the sights along the way.

If you choose to drive, be cautioned, the majority of streets in Philadelphia are 1-way. It takes a little getting used to. Parking garages are plentiful. However, they aren’t cheap. Expect to pay as much as $25 per day to park.
