Public Transit

Philadelphia’s Public Transit System is called SEPTA, and includes buses, subways, trolleys, and trains. The University of Pennsylvania is:

  1. An 8-minute walk from the Market-Frankford Line (the MFL). Hop off at 34th Street Station, and walk south until you reach Perelman Quad.
  2. A 5-minute walk from the 37th Street Trolley Station. Walk east on Spruce Street until you get to Perelman Quad.
  3. There are also a number of local bus stations. The “public transit” settings of Google and Apple Maps do a great job of getting you on the best route.

Each trip on the SEPTA will cost $2.50 cash, one token, or a reloadable SeptaKey card. Exact change only.


Parking can be challenging at The University of Pennsylvania but the lots below have visitor spots. See below for addresses and fares.
