Getting to Philly
Want to get to Philadelphia? Here’s how:
Step 1. Bus to Regional Rail in Norristown
The Route 93 East bus takes you to Norristown Transportation Center. There are two Septa bus stops on Main Street. One is right in front of Schreiner Hall, on the corner of 6th Avenue and Main Street, and the other in front of Commonwealth Hall, on the corner of 5th Avenue and Main Street. The same bus stops at each corner.
An easy way to be sure that you are on the correct bus is that the eastbound buses stop across the street from campus, while the westbound buses stop on the campus-side of the street. The bus fare is $2.25
Step 2. Regional Rail to 30th Street Station in Philadelphia
Once you have arrived at the Norristown Transportation Center, walk to the Regional Rail platform. The ticket office hours vary (usually open in the morning). You can buy your ticket to 30th Street Station in Philadelphia for $5.75. If it’s closed, you can buy the ticket once you are already on the train, which costs $7.00.
